seca, the world market leader for medical weighing and measuring systems, is a medium-size family business steeped in tradition. Very early on the company recognized the importance of international trade and over the years established 17 international branch offices and engaged trade partners in more than 110 countries. In the past seven years the product portfolio has been digitalized and made fit to meet the challenges of the 21stcentury. To date, many of our products can be fully integrated in customers’ information systems to which they automatically transmit height, weight and other vital parameters. This function prevents manual transcription errors, speeds up the process and gives the user security and more time to take care of the patient. Despite efforts at standardization by Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise, the variety of information systems, protocols and exchange formats makes integration a custom project every time. Through our cooperation with Cerner, for example, we can offer validated and standardized interfaces that reduce project expenses for customers and accelerate project implementation. For the cooperation partner, a standardized interface is an additional marketing instrument. Consequently, seca is interested in entering into more cooperative agreements with manufacturers of Electronic Medical Record, Patient Data Management and hospital information systems, and providers of other information systems.
