Helping our customers elevate their operational efficiency and productivity by supplying invaluable data to aid lab management
2022 marked the first year of operations for the Werfen Digital Factory. Based at our Headquarters and Technology Center in Bedford, MA, this state-of-the art, collaborative workspace, comprised of highly skilled professionals, centralizes key competencies and agile working methodologies, to accelerate the development of digital solutions.
Our initial focus is on the development of Lab and Clinical-Decision Support tools, as well as Remote Service. This will allow us to help our customers elevate their operational efficiency and productivity by supplying invaluable data to aid lab management and clinical outcomes.
To this end, in 2022, we initiated development of our first Clinical Decision-Support solution, and expanded development of our ProDx solution for Remote Instrument Service. Additionally, we initiated development of cloud-based technology for next-generation solutions.
Longer-term, our focus will expand to the development of specialized digital ecosystems for enhanced customer engagement, operational efficiencies, and advanced clinical support. Ultimately, we believe this will help contribute to better patient care.
Since 1995, Clinical Software (CSW), based in the Barcelona area, has focused on the design and development of software to power Werfen’s Specialized Diagnostic portfolio. This includes Hemostasis, Acute Care, and Autoimmunity, as well as enterprise software solutions, such as LIS. Over the years, we built a strong practice, anchored in state-of-the-art processes, technologies and cybersecurity in medical-device software domains, with outstanding talent and innovative ways of working.
In 2022, CSW joined the newly established Digital Solutions team. By combining our expertise with that of the Digital Factory, along with our tools, manufacturing, service and quality management system, we have created a robust, synergistic and collaborative organization.
This will allow us to not only maintain our current level of excellence and product delivery, but to accelerate innovation in the digital environment, anticipate the future needs of our customers, and deliver the highest quality solutions.
In addition to these achievements, in 2022 we focused efforts on process harmonization, and agile software development methodology has become part of our DNA. We have also embraced DevOps methodologies to take us to the next level.
