Hamburg, 10/08/2015 | Press Release | Medical Systems Technology partnership with NEXUS/E&L
The IT company is to support Olympus in developing an update to its ENDOBASE software
Olympus Europa and its subsidiary Olympus Surgical Technologies Europe (OSTE) are entering into a technology partnership with software provider NEXUS/E&L. The aim of the cooperation is to collaborate in the further development of the ENDOBASE integrated documentation system. Olympus and NEXUS are an ideal complement to one another – and intend to exploit these synergies through the partnership.
“By collaborating with the specialist provider E&L, which is part of the Nexus AG company group, our customers benefit from our extensive experience in endoscopic documentation and from the technological expertise of the software provider. We can now feed this know-how into our documentation systems step by step,” says Frank Drewalowski, Managing Director Medical Systems at Olympus Europa SE & CO. KG. ENDOBASE is a documentation system capable of being fully integrated into existing IT environments in hospitals. This enables all endoscopic information to be bundled together centrally, allowing the software to support in all areas of a modern endoscopy department and improving workflows for doctors and nursing staff.
Specialist for IT solutions in healthcare
NEXUS AG specialises in IT solutions for the healthcare sector. Since 2012, E&L medical systems GmbH – a leading provider of software solutions for hospital-wide special diagnostics and device connections – has been a part of the NEXUS Group. “We are highly impressed with the technological expertise at Olympus, and with its closeness to its international customers. For those reasons, we are delighted to be sharing in the responsibility for the onward development of ENDOBASE,” says Ingo Behrendt, CEO at NEXUS AG. “For us, the partnership with Olympus is also a key step in the internationalisation we have long been seeking. The cooperation also sustainably accelerates further technological development of our core brand Clinic WinData, meaning that our E&L customers in the German market can similarly count on corresponding innovations and value-added from 2016,” says Edgar Lehmann, company founder and Managing Director at E&L.
