Healius picks SCC for $100m laboratory information system replacement
ASX-listed pathology, diagnostic imaging and medical centre provider Healius has signed a contract with US laboratory information system vendor SCC Soft Computer to replace the ageing systems used by its SDS Pathology division.
SDS – which includes QML Pathology, Laverty Pathology, Dorevitch Pathology, Abbott Pathology, Western Diagnostics and Tasmanian Medical Laboratories – is one of the largest private laboratory providers in Australia and the largest provider of pathology services to public hospitals.
Healius, formerly known as Primary Health Care, plans to spend $100 million over five years on the program, which will see the replacement of the Ultra system originally developed by TripleG and an internally developed system with SCC's laboratory and genetics information management solutions, a suite that includes its LIS solution SoftLab, its microbiology solution SoftMic and other modules for cytogentics, molecular biology, immunogenetics, cytometry and biochemistry as well as reporting and analytics.
