Global Information Technology Awards Foundation Pays Tribute to Individuals

and Organizations

SALT LAKE CITY, June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- ARUP Laboratories, a national clinical and anatomic pathology reference laboratory and a leader in innovative laboratory research and development, announced today that its Case Study for "ARUP Consult(R), The Physician's Guide to Laboratory Test Selection and Interpretation," was selected as a Laureate by the Computerworld Honors Program. ARUP Consult is an online resource which offers health care providers no-cost access to current diagnostic advice regarding test selection and interpretation for more than 1,500 laboratory tests. ARUP Consult is available at or for mobile users.

"Each year, the Computerworld Honors Program seeks to recognize organizations, from a variety of sectors, for their ongoing efforts to utilize technology in order to benefit society," said Ron Milton, chairman of the Board of Trustees for the Computerworld Information Technology Awards Foundation and executive vice president of Computerworld. "We are proud to provide a platform to publicly acknowledge these contributions."

The Computerworld Honors Program unites chairmen and CEOs of the world's foremost information technology companies to recognize the most outstanding user achievements in technology each year. The technology achievements honored by this program are preserved and protected in national archives and in over 350 universities, museums, and research institutions throughout the world.

Each year, members of the Chairmen's Committee, a group of 100 chairman/CEOs of global technology companies, nominate individuals and organizations around the world whose visionary applications of information technology promote positive social and economic progress. These identified organizations are asked to contribute a case study to the program's collection, and the donation of these case studies is celebrated with a formal medal ceremony in June where an accepted case study Laureate from each organization is publicly recognized.

ARUP Laboratories was one of 19 Laureates and three finalists nominated by Sybase, Inc., the largest enterprise software and services company exclusively focused on managing and mobilizing information. According to Ronald L. Weiss, MD, MBA, president and COO of ARUP Laboratories, Sybase(R) M-Business Anywhere(TM) provides mobile content and an application platform to leverage ARUP Consult's sync-and-go and wireless applications.

"We are pleased to be included in this distinguished group of Computerworld Laureates," remarked Weiss. "Because ARUP's primary mission is to improve patient care, we've made ARUP Consult a top priority. This one-of-a-kind tool will enable physicians everywhere to have a positive impact on their local health community."
