Even though we all hope that we can go back to business as it was before the pandemic, Pharmacolog will maintain many of the recently developed methods to demonstrate, install, train and provide service for our customers. In addition to a shorter response time and cost savings, these methods also contribute to lower carbon emissions and thus a healthier environment.
Installations in hospitals in Belgium, Germany, Texas and more
Business is improving, as our first quarterly report indicated. Sales during the first three months in 2021 had an almost tenfold increase compared to the corresponding period last year, and sales during the first quarter are already 30% higher than the total sales in 2020.
Our partner collaborations are keeping us busy with campaign planning and demo support. Long-standing leads that came to a standstill during the pandemic are now reopening.
We have installed our first DrugLog® in Belgium and increased our installed base in both Germany and France. In the US, WasteLog® is beginning to be seen as the gold standard for accurate and efficient waste screening, something that resulted in prestigious orders from UT Southwestern in Dallas, Texas; Southern Illinois Healthcare Systems in Carbondale, Illinois; three additional units to NewYork Presbyterian and a new installation at Bronson Methodist Hospital in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
We will continue to improve patient care worldwide
We are proud to offer three unique solutions: WasteLog®, PrepLog® and DrugLog®. These solutions are helping health care professionals work more efficiently and safely to provide high quality care for patients, especially during these challenging times when healthcare systems are strained.
The world’s hard-working and dedicated healthcare professionals deserve efficient tools to deliver the best possible care to their patients. The Pharmacolog team has done an excellent job refining our solutions for existing and new customers despite restrictions caused by the pandemic. We look forward to the remaining of 2021 and continuing to improve patient care worldwide.
We wish all of you a relaxing and COVID-free summer. After this very challenging time, we all need an opportunity to re-charge our batteries.
