Dedalus S.p.A. is a big enterprise active in the Healthcare ICT sector, with almost 30 years of experience in providing innovative solutions to support the always increasing requirements of a continuously changing context such as the e-Health. Established in Florence in 1990, Dedalus is today at the head of a leading national healthcare software industrial Group, with many important roles in all public and private health market segments, a sector that has a strategic importance for the national economy.
Dedalus mission is to improve quality and access to clinical and health services by offering specific services and solutions to healthcare professionals, to healthcare expense managers and to service providers (hospitals, health centers, cure houses, diagnostic centers). Dedalus activities started in the early 80s following an intuition: the introduction of ICT in the health system could have been the way to guarantee excellent results both in terms of quality optimization of the healthcare processes and in terms of savings. The strategy adopted to rapidly acquire advanced competencies in the eHealth sector was an acquisition and merger process involving the best Italian players, which helped Dedalus becoming the reference company in this sector. Technology evolution, introduction of data transmission and improvements of medical-informatics culture are, in the Dedalus vision, the best starting points to allow the qualitative leap that the healthcare system certainly needs.
Dedalus has also a proven experience in R&D projects. In particular, the R&D Division of Dedalus inherits the research and development experience of Synapsis S.r.l., established in 1996 in Livorno as a spin-off company of the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna of Pisa. Thanks to this experience, Dedalus has nowadays a strong scientific activity, with a solid network of partnership with both industrial and scientific national and international collaborations. The technical and scientific expertise of the computer scientists in the R&D Division has been achieved through the participation to many national and European funded projects and technology transfer initiatives, starting from the III Framework Programme of the European Commission.
