2012’s ophthalmic events: taking stock and looking ahead Print

With more than half of 2012 and its ophthalmic events over, it is now time for a first assessment of the congresses, fairs and workshops ifa systems AG has participated in and organized so far.

For ifa systems AG the first half of the year was packed with events. Thus the ifa team boarded lots of planes and got to know many interesting destinations and cultures. Undoubtedly the WOC (Abu Dhabi), ASCRS (Chicago) and ESCRS Winter Meeting (Prague) figure among the highlights of this year’s international events so far. Prospects from all over the world met with the team at the ifa booth and learned about ifa’s exceptional, high-quality solutions for Health IT projects.

However, ophthalmic congresses in Germany, where ifa’s story of success began, remain equally important to the company. At events such as the DOC in Nuremberg and the Retina World Congress in Hamburg the team met with a high number of both national and international prospects and patients, who are an integral part of ifa’s mission. Existing clients also figure in ifa’s calendar of events in 2012 and have met with ifa consultants at fairs, for example the AAD in Düsseldorf, and workshops on organization of and billing in ophthalmic practices throughout Germany.

On the whole, the first half of 2012 has confirmed ifa’s role as a pioneer in the field of Health IT for ophthalmology. Prospects and users equally value that the ifa EMR features many different components that no eye care specialist can do without in the future: guaranteed connectivity, imaging, structured data and ergonomic navigation.

ifa will use the second half of this year to continue strengthening this position, for example by means of further intensifying its highly professional cooperation with different partners from the ophthalmic industry as discussed at several of this year’s events.

After a brief summer break, the ifa team will set out for the second half of this year’s ophthalmic events and join the SOG congress in Fribourg. Naturally, the ifa team will also be present at the DOG (Berlin), AAO (Chicago) and ESCRS (Milan). Please click here for a list of the remaining events ifa will participate in this year.

With best wishes for an enjoyable summer, the ifa team looks forward to meeting all users, prospects and partners at this year’s remaining congresses for many more inspiring talks.
