A global leader in healthcare technology, CompuGroup Medical (CGM) is expanding its US presence with the acquisition of Schuyler House, an established developer of laboratory information systems with headquarters in Valencia, California, and offices in Columbia, Missouri.
Schuyler House has a 25-year history in the development of lab management software. The SchuyLab laboratory information system has been one of the most sustainably successful systems in the physician office lab and reference lab markets during the last decades.
"We are strengthening our product portfolio and our laboratory presence in the United States," said Benedikt Brueckle, Senior Vice President US & Canada for CGM. "With this acquisition, CompuGroup Medical becomes the clear market leader by reach in this segment in the United States."
"SchuyLab is a modular, scalable, and powerful laboratory information system," Brueckle said. "This software combined with the skill and expertise of the Schuyler House development and support teams will be another important building block in the CGM success story in the United States."
Building on 30 years of success with the CGM LABDAQ Laboratory Information System, CompuGroup Medical now becomes the single largest provider of laboratory information systems in the US, serving more laboratories than any other LIS vendor in the country. By acquiring SchuyLab, CompuGroup Medical gains more options and expertise to better serve laboratories performing clinical, toxicology, pain management, microbiology, molecular testing, and more.
"With a shared passion for enabling the best possible care, Schuyler House is a perfect fit for CGM," said General Manager Carl Smith, Lab Division, CompuGroup Medical US. "Both SchuyLab and CGM LABDAQ are designed to increase productivity in the lab and facilitate the quick, secure transfer of data and test results."
"We're excited about this acquisition and the opportunities it brings," said CEO William Shipley, Schuyler House. "Our goals and core values align perfectly with CGM. CompuGroup Medical is a strong partner with an incredible, multinational presence."
"CGM makes long-term, strategic investments," Shipley said. "This deal will help us take Schuyler House and SchuyLab to the next level."
