Another step closer to our mission
An interview with Filip Pintelon
With a new hub in China, a warmly welcomed update of Nexxis, continued success for diagnostics and promising new solutions in the pipeline, 2019 looked bright for Barco’s Healthcare division. General manager Filip Pintelon confirms that 2019 was a good year.
Hospitals want to reduce process complexity and the workload of their teams. Barco caters to that need.

“The opening of our new R&D and production hub in China was definitely a milestone,” says Filip. “With a strong double digit growth, China now is our fastest growing market. We couldn’t have realized that growth without our solid investments there. While the focus still is on diagnostics, but we do expect surgical to pick up in China from 2020 onwards.”
The Orsi Academy, Europe’s largest training center for robotic surgery and innovative medical technology in general, uses our Nexxis OR-over-IP platform. Barco also sees the center as an ideal forum for demonstrating and testing new technologies.
