Barco targets Turkey’s healthcare sector
TURKEY: Barco has partnered with Turkish provider of cloud-based medical imaging solutions, Limantepe Technology & Life. The agreement will result in the combination of Barco’s medical display solutions with Limantepe’s cloud-based health information systems to offer an all-in-one solution to imaging centres and small hospitals.
Limantepe was founded in 2015 by a pair of healthcare and technology experts to provide a platform for managing medical images online. Within two years, its imageRAD medical image archiving and sharing system is in use at imaging centres and hospitals across Turkey. As part of the partnership, Limantepe will offer Barco’s portfolio of healthcare systems, including mammography, diagnostic and clinical review displays, MXRT graphics controllers and MediCal QAWeb software.
‘I’ve worked closely with Barco in the past,’ explained Limantepe owner Haluk Celikel. ‘Our unique cloud-based platform will be more powerful when bundled with Barco’s medical display solutions. We free our customers from IT issues, allowing them to focus on delivering the best possible clinical outcomes with the best possible imaging tools.’
Piet Candeel, senior VP sales EMEA at Barco described the partnership as a unique one that will help Barco to expand its footprint in Turkey. ‘Providing accurate images and raising productivity is key in today’s pressured healthcare market, where budgets are tight,’ he said. ‘That’s exactly what our medical display systems do. Limantepe’s cloud-based solution has exactly the same objective: boosting convenience and productivity while increasing return on investment. The match with our portfolio as well as their comprehensive experience in the Turkish market make Limantepe a perfect partner.’
