Subtitle: - Consolidation and progressive privatization
- Search for stable IT-partners with international structures and solutions for
the future 
- Concerning lab solutions, CGM offers a powerful laboratory solution and
international best practice coupled with networking with the outpatient sector.

Koblenz (euro adhoc) - August 16, 2012. The trend in the Laboratory market is
clearly recognizable: the concentration process is in full swing creating new
structures. This also holds true for IT- vendors.  With laboratory solutions in
20 countries, CompuGroup Medical possesses global knowledge of the industry for
laboratories of all sizes.

Following the privatization of hospitals and the outsourcing of hospital
laboratories, the laboratory business has been focusing on fewer and fewer
suppliers. Currently in Germany, nearly 60% of private laboratories belong to
large laboratory networks. Furthermore, the laboratory performance is becoming
more and more technical on an international level. Causes for this are high
levels of automation and mechanization, such as the introduction of chip
technology or the POC analysis (Point of Care).

This development presents new challenges for the vendors. The systems must be
programmed in multiple languages and must also do the international standards
justice. It is no longer sufficient to further develop existing systems. Rather,
solutions for internal and external networking and smart management tools which
support the workflow must be made available. So far, the IT market focuses and
operates only on a national level. Few IT vendors have international expertise
and the necessary country-specific market knowledge. 

One such vendor is CGM. As a world leader in eHealth, the company interacts with
customers in 34 countries, including 1,500 laboratories with large instillation
in 20 countries. The foundation consists of the lab solutions already
successfully in use today. "In recent months, we have seen a pleasant increase
in orders for the laboratory market, for example, in the emerging Russian
market", confirms Frank Gotthardt, Chief Executive Officer of CompuGroup Medical
AG. This is also attributable to the considerable investments in product
development, especially in the development of laboratory solutions. 

CGM possesses the necessary performance and market knowledge necessary to
implement international solutions according to customer specific requirements in
a reasonable time frame. The systems and their components already cover the
complete range of services in the laboratory. In addition, CGM focuses on
interfaces, for example, the networking solution CGM LAB Connect which organizes
the workflow in complex orders and in the transfer of laboratory results to a
wide range of receivers.

"In CGM we have found a competent partner. CGM offers completely digitalized
systems that create quick and accurate requests, good workflow at the laboratory
and reliable notification of diagnosis results," says Geir Nordheim, Project
Manager at Nye Ahus, rather enthusiastically. Nye Ahus, with its hospital in
Norway, sets new standards with the aim of becoming the most modern hospital in
Europe.
