Galexis has introduced electronic batch communication, eliminating the need for time-consuming manual registration. It has also expanded the Focus medical technology range in the area of gynaecology and extended the “DEAL” offering for pharmacies.
The new European guidelines for Good Distribution Practice of Medicinal Products for Human Use (GDP) have been in force since mid-2015. Alloga and Galexis have amended all processes and are currently engaged in modernising their infrastructure.
The strong demand for the services of Medifilm continues to grow. The introduction of the Mediproc software platform makes the ordering process simpler and more efficient for customers, at the same time enabling automatic health insurance billing.
Another pioneering eHealth offer was created in 2015 in the form of the Medication Plan, which enables hospitals, nursing homes, care providers, pharmacies and medical practices to keep and print patient medication records in full and archive them online. With the assistance of HCI Solutions, the Medication Plan was successfully piloted in the cantons of St. Gallen, Thurgau and Zug.
The Services Business sector aims to strengthen customer competitiveness with high-quality services and innovative offerings while reducing costs with increased efficiency.
The next concrete project is to complete the extension of the Galexis distribution centre in Niederbipp, making Galexis the wholesaler with the broadest range in Switzerland and enabling it to deliver even more quickly throughout the country. Another priority is to replace the current Alloga and Galexis ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems.
The expansion of capacities at Medifilm, one of the key growth drivers, should also bolster the Business sector’s success. At HCI Solutions, the current business activities are to be driven forward and new offerings developed.
