ifa at the ESCRS Congress 2012: a progressive and reliable partner for all Health IT requirements Print

From 8 to 12 September 2012 the ifa group of companies participated in what has come to be the most important ophthalmic event in Europe: the ESCRS Congress. A record number of 6,700 delegates visited the event, thus reflecting the significance the congress has acquired over the years.

With ifa’s new international EMR generation, ifaV2020, available at the company’s booth, delegates from all over the world showed great interest in ifa’s broad range of Health IT solutions: Claudia Wente-Waedlich, Guido Niemann, Robert Habel, Peter Scherer and Rainer Waedlich were delighted to welcome many international visitors to the ifa booth and learn about upcoming Health IT projects across the globe, from South Africa to Ethiopia, the UK and Latvia.
Delegates also informed the ifa team about plans to establish national eye care registers. The ifa group of companies has proven to be the ideal IT partner for such projects, e. g. in the course of the EUREQUO project, a web-based quality management register for ophthalmic surgery across Europe. In September of 2012 the number of surgeries recorded in EUREQUO passed the one million mark, thus proving it is well-worth expanding the program internationally, as announced at this year’s ESCRS Congress.
The ifa group of companies has also won great renown among its industrial partners for its know-how in the area of data management. The congress was thus an opportunity for the company and its partners to discuss plans to intensify their cooperation. In addition, the ifa team received very positive feedback from international customers who visited the ifa booth and displayed great satisfaction with their ifa applications.
All in all, to the ifa group of companies the ESCRS Congress in Milan has been one of the most important ophthalmic events in 2012. It gave the ifa team an opportunity to touch base with its international clients and simultaneously learn about many interesting Health IT projects and the challenges they will present software specialists with in the future.
The ifa group of companies would like to thank all users, prospects and partners for visiting ifa’s booth at the ESCRS Congress in Milan and is looking forward to meeting them again soon. For a full list of this year’s remaining events and the congresses in 2013, click here.
