Medical imaging company Telemis partners with healthcare specialist A.Medical
Medical imaging company Telemis, which specialises in MACS (Multimedia Archiving and Communication System) technology, has expanded its presence in Latvia by signing a partnership agreement with the medical equipment and infrastructure specialist A.Medical.
The long-term agreement follows a recent joint business venture with a hospital in Daugavpils, one of the largest cities in Latvia (second to the country’s capital city, Riga).
Latvia’s healthcare sector has recently been restructured to facilitate additional healthcare options and generally increase efficiency. The sector’s growth potential lies in the combination of highly qualified medical personnel, low-cost services, and first-rate facilities.
In line with Telemis’s existing international expansion strategy to ensure business continuity with customers at a local level, Stephane Ketelaer, CEO of Telemis, said: “We are happy to be able to count on A.Medical as a solid partner in Latvia. This newly signed agreement extends our joint presence in Latvia and contributes to offering the highest quality medical software to diagnose and treat Latvian patients.
“We have known A.Medical as a reliable service company and one that does not hesitate to go with the newest technologies while helping medical institutions.”
Said Igors Palkovs, CEO of A.Medical: “Our company is well established in the sale of modalities throughout Latvia in the hospital environment.
“We have known Telemis for more than five years and have seen the evolution of their solutions. We are pleased to have signed a partnership agreement to represent Telemis throughout Latvia. Our aim is to develop the business in the region and to provide local support to Telemis customers.”
Based in the capital city Riga, Telemis SIA supports the installed base it already has, developing new business in the country and neighbouring countries. A.Medical represents Telemis in Latvia, supporting established software and maintenance contracts, responding to calls for tender, and developing new business. Together the two companies have already signed a five-year Telemis software and maintenance contract with Daugavpils Regional Hospital in south-eastern Latvia to replace its old PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System) solution.
As Gregory Semjonos, general manager of Daugavpils Regional Hospital, explains: “We acquired the Telemis PACS as a replacement for the AGFA PACS. Due to the good performance and our satisfaction with the solution, it was decided to extend the contract and collaboration for the next five years”.
