Leading eye hospital in the Netherlands decides on implementing ifa Print

One of the largest and leading eye hospitals in Western Europe, the Rotterdam Eye Hospital, OOG, (www.oogziekenhuis.nl) has chosen ifa systems AG as their IT partner for the implementation of an Electronic Medical Record (EMR), following an intensive selection and evaluation process that spanned more than 24 months. After the implementation process was postponed for internal OOG reasons, it is now envisaged to start in the first quarter of 2013.

The project corresponds in size to the introduction of the ifa EMR at the Department of Ophthalmology of the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine (the Dean McGee Eye Institute), which started at the beginning of this year.
