A common software base is used across all products, thus achieving significantly smaller development time and cost while boosting at the same time quality and functionality.

Some important products are:


Asclepius is Health Information System (HIS) that caters to all management and daily operation needs of healthcare facilities like hospitals and clinics. In- and out-patient handling, material tracking, financial management, drug administration and document management are among the areas covered by this extensive enterprise information system.

Asclepius Hospital Pharmacy, a subset of Asclepius, targets exclusively the needs of in-hospital pharmacies. It helps pharmacists track the import and export of drugs and medical supplies, the dispensing of prescriptions, the tracking of narcotics, etc.

Although a fairly new product, Asclepius has an important installed base in Greece and work is being done to adapt it to foreign markets.
