Thank you for 2014! Print

The past year was under many aspects one of the most successful years in the ifa groups company history. The number of projects, especially in international markets, increased significantly; the market development strategies of the last years have now begun to pay off. Additionally, ifa was able to finalize contracts with qualified cooperation partners across the globe, which have already shown first successes in project acquisitions.

Project development also achieved great things in 2014: In addition to the successful certification in Germany (requirements from the “Kassenärztlichen Bundesvereinigung KBV”) and in the US (Meaningful Use 2014) additional Health-IT-areas were developed. With a “Computer Assisted Coding” (CAC) ifa is well prepared for the introduction if ICD-10 and the demands of optimized clinical documentation of leading international eye clinics. The development of CDA applications (Clinical Document Architecture / the new HL7 generation) is an important milestone for a professional data exchange in medical technology.
Profit before tax increased by over 20% and was a prerequisite for a commitment to a further dividend increase of 33% (from 0,09 EUR for 2014 to 0,12 EUR for 2014). Furthermore our shareholders (many of them customers and employees) were pleased to see a 60 % increase in the share price.
For 2015 the prospects are promising: The up-coming projects ensure a continuous workload beyond the first six months and the demands promise a significant increase. 
The Management and Supervisory Board of the ifa systems AG-group thanks all employees, the many faithful customers, partners and the committed shareholders for the strong results of 2014 and the entire team is looking forward to the professional challenges in the new year.
