MIPS acquires GesLab, Belgium

Press Release   •   Feb 19, 2011 05:49 GMT

MIPS, a member of the CliniSys Group, has acquired the intellectual property in GesLab, a laboratory information system (LIS) deployed in 23 sites across Belgium and France. CliniSys intends to build on this acquisition to consolidate its position as the leading pan-European LIS provider. GesLab customers were left without support for a core clinical system following the bankruptcy of Gespower SA.

Key personnel with many years experience of the GesLab product have joined MIPS to provide on-going support services to the GesLab customers. This support will be delivered from a new MIPS office established in Wallonia which forms part of MIPS strategic growth plans for this region. MIPS has recently won a number of new customers in Wallonia and hopes to expand upon this success through working in collaboration with the GesLab customer base to develop mutually beneficial upgrade plans to GLIMS, MIPS leading international LIS product.

The fast and accurate delivery of laboratory results is at the heart of many healthcare improvement programmes which demand solutions that meet both the evolving needs of the laboratory scientist and the diagnosing clinician's need for integrated information at the point of care. MIPS products are functionally rich and are deployed across the full spectrum of laboratory configurations - from the small specialist laboratory through to the high-volume, high-throughput needs of the multi-site network - delivering improved quality and productivity within the clinical laboratory in both the private and public sectors.

Established more than 25 years ago, the CliniSys Group has an installed base of more than 2,000 laboratories worldwide supporting in excess of 22,000 laboratory users. The Company employs more than 230 healthcare IT professionals and, by working in close collaboration with its prestigious customer base across the European healthcare community, Clinisys stays at the forefront of clinical innovation.
John Lebon, COO MIPS comments:

We are looking forward to working with the GesLab customers and we are delighted to have the opportunity to expand our customer base in Wallonia and Northern France.
