Citadel rejects end of life claims for Auslab as QH confirms $50-100m tender
Canberra-based Citadel Health has rejected reports describing the Auslab laboratory information system used by Queensland Health as at the end of its life, saying it is a core product within the company's solution suite that Citadel will continue to invest in.
Auslab has been used by Queensland Health for 20 years for its public hospital pathology services. First developed by PJA Solutions, which was acquired by Citadel Health last year, Auslab is used in conjunction with a results viewer called Auscare, and is one of the few lab systems on the market that has integrated billing.
A spokesperson for Health Support Queensland confirmed that Queensland Health is planning to undertake an open tender process for a new laboratory information system (LIS) this year, with the budget estimated to be between $50 and $100 million.
