Global Med’s Subsidiary Licenses Laboratory Software to Gabriel Martin Hospital

Global Med Technologies, a medical software company, has announced that its Inlog subsidiary has licensed its EdgeLab laboratory information management software to the Gabriel Martin Hospital of Saint-Paul de la Reunion. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

EdgeLab is an information management tool with a comprehensive range of laboratory functionality and runs on a Windows graphical interface. EdgeLab can be easily configured to meet the business needs of large, complex, multi-site hospital laboratories, as well as small, single-site hospitals that have much less complexity, said Global Med.

EdgeLab is connected with more than 1,000 analyzers and interchanges data with all major hospital healthcare software packages. Saint-Paul's laboratory processes 250 patient files per week and will directly connect 14 laboratory analyzers to the EdgeLab solution. EdgeLab is expected to help Saint-Paul experience greater efficiencies in its laboratory while offering reliability, quality and performance.

Will Willman, vice president of sales and marketing EU/ME/Asia at Global Med Technologies, said: "We are excited to have been chosen to assist Saint-Paul with their laboratory information management system needs in their hospital.

"We are pleased that laboratory managers in French hospitals are increasingly choosing EdgeLab. We are looking forward to supporting Saint-Paul with quality products and services as they continue to provide excellent, advanced healthcare to patients in their community."
