MCD Medical Computers Deutschland enters into strategic partnership with Barco

Barco has entered into a strategic partnership with MCD Medical Computers Deutschland, a manufacturer of IT systems for the healthcare industry. Under the agreement, MCD will provide its customers with access to Barco’s surgical displays, as part of its 'MCD Medical Line' of medical IT products.

Barco and MCD believe the partnership will help them strengthen their foothold in the surgical display market within the DACH region.

Besides standard PCs, displays, panel PCs, portable terminals and input devices within its ‘MCD Medical Line’, MCD also develops and manufactures medical devices for large medical device manufacturers. In addition, the company delivers customised, integrated platforms for operating rooms (ORs), intensive care units, diagnostic centers, laboratories and clean rooms around the world.

Thomas Hollex, general manager at MCD says: "By combining Barco’s displays with our medical PC hardware, we can provide our customers with a reliable solution for visualisation in the OR. We are confident that this partnership will help us grow our surgical display business across the region."

"MCD has an excellent reputation for providing reliable, high-quality systems within healthcare and in particular the operating room and has, consequently, built a strong foothold in hospitals in the German-speaking part of Europe and beyond," says Wim De Bruyne, VP sales healthcare for Barco. "We strongly believe that they are the right partner to further push our range of surgical displays and gain a stronger foothold in the market."
