Global Med's Inlog, S.A., Subsidiary Continues its Strong Sales Presence in the European Market
DENVER, May 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Global Med Technologies(R), Inc. ("Global Med" or the "Company") (OTC Bulletin Board: GLOB), an international e-Health, medical information technology company, today announced that its Inlog subsidiary has licensed and deployed its EdgeLab Laboratory Information Management Software (Marketed as "Labo Serveur" in France) to the Eugene Andre Hospital near Lyon, France. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Since EdgeLab was introduced into the hospital market in 1999 as "Labo Serveur", it has become a leading laboratory information management system in Europe with more than 150 licensed laboratories. EdgeLab is connected with more than 1,000 analyzers and interchanges data with all major hospital healthcare software applications. It has a vibrant, easy-to-use Windows graphical interface in addition to a comprehensive range of laboratory functionality. EdgeLab can be easily configured to meet the business needs of large, diverse, multi-site hospital laboratories, as well as small, single-site hospitals.
Mr. Magnin, Head of Laboratory Service of Eugene Andre Hospital, explained, "In April, 2008 after the announcement that Agfa was discontinuing the maintenance of our HPX software, we decided to replace our product and contacted three companies whose computer solutions seemed to be suitable for our laboratory. The IT Department of our hospital took part in the decision. This allowed us to have two viewpoints on a new laboratory product: a functional viewpoint for the biologists and an equipment and architectural viewpoint for the IT technicians. For both parties involved in the decision, it was determined that EdgeLab answered our needs the best. The user feedback was positive both in terms of functionality and post sales support. We were provided with great support throughout the process and for us this was a sign of future success. The flexibility of the EdgeBlood configuration appealed to us. We added additional functionality to what our legacy software offered, including a document manager, a results server in the ward, and connection to the Biomnis Laboratory. The implementation was completed in less than 3 months, and this included the absence of the head biologist for 15 days during the project."
At Eugene Andre Hospital, EdgeLab is directly connected to six laboratory analyzers, the hospital management system and several other external systems, including Inlog's EdgeBlood blood center information management system at the French Blood Establishment (EFS). EFS uses EdgeBlood to recruit, collect, process and label 100 percent of the blood drawn in France.
Will Willman, Global Med's Sr. Vice President of Sales and Marketing EU/ME/Asia, commented, "We are excited to have been chosen to assist Clinique Mutualiste's Eugene Andre Hospital with their laboratory information management system needs. EdgeLab has become a leading laboratory information system in Europe because it has kept current with the needs of the marketplace by providing hospital laboratories with the advanced features and functions they require. We are looking forward to supporting Eugene Andre with quality products and services as they continue to provide excellent, advanced healthcare to patients in the greater Lyon area."
