GHP / Technology Awards 2021 11 , Dec21491 Headquartered in Dossenheimnear Heidelberg, Germany, with offices in Frankfurt and Ismaning, NEXUS / CHILI GmbH develops innovative software solutions for multimedia image management inmedicine. The company was founded following the observation that hospitals needed a faster andmore practical way to store, archive and share medical images and documents, whilst at the same time ensuring data privacy. Best Image Processing Software Solutions Provider - Germany NEXUS / CHILI has three roots. Its RIS roots go back to former companies MEDOS and Inovit, both established in the 1980s, while the PACS and telemedicine root, CHILI goes back to 1997 as a spin-off from the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ). The current company NEXUS / CHILI was formed from these three roots under the roof of NEXUS AG, in Donaueschingen, Germany. It delivers solutions covering RIS, PACS and portals for teleradiology as well as telemedicine, which have been on the market since 1982. Working with scientific institutions such as DKFZ, NEXUS / CHILI is able to acquire and utilise the most recent research for its solutions, as well as by paying close attention to the changing demands of the market. Its solutions are mostly aimed at clinics and hospitals of all sizes, including large university medical centres (teaching hospitals), as well as radiology departments and doctor’s practices, helping them to work efficiently by managing and optimising their entire medical workflow. NEXUS / CHILI finds that the current market demands or political subjects, such as the Hospital Future Act (KHZG) or the growing role of patient empowerment have led to the development of a variety of portal solutions that accompany patients before, during and after treatment, so that all kinds of data can be digitally made available to patients, hospitals, referring physicians or post- treatment institutions at any time of the treatment process. These include NEXUS / PORTAL, CHILI Patient Portal, CHILI Teleradiology Portal, and CHILI Upload Portal. The expert team who make all these solutions happen come from different study areas, mostly from the field of medical IT, and they bring a lot of experience and versatile skills to the table in order to deliver such pioneering technology. Customers benefit from great agility and flexibility of the company and its solutions and service – And this didn’t faulter during the pandemic either, with the team showing exceptional teamworking skills, working closely together and helping each other out as needed, even when times were tough. With regards to the company’s internal culture, it benefits from being able to maintain that of a start-up – even with 100 employees in an entity that belongs to a large group (NEXUS AG) with over 1,500 employees in about 20 companies across Europe. When it comes to attracting new staff to join the team, the company does this by being present at universities, lectures, student internships, and it offers a thesis for students. Being located in Southwest Germany, NEXUS / CHILI is surrounded by several universities, so it has better access to highly qualified personnel. Today, NEXUS / CHILI is still working closely with the DKFZ and other scientific institutions to incorporate the latest research results into current developments. The requirements of the users who work with the systems on a daily basis shape the further development of the solutions to a considerable extent. And as the company heads in 2022, its hardworking team will be focusing on portals and integration of AI into its software and to further support the digital diagnostics process.
