LRS Health and Sysmex announce business alliance in trans-Tasman healthcare market
In a joint agreement, LRS Health and Sysmex New Zealand Ltd have established a collaborative arrangement which will allow both companies to market their respective health IT suites across both sides of the Tasman.
The companies have formed the alliance based on common-purpose and a commitment to providing innovative solutions that cater to the healthcare market.
Sharing similar principles and goals, LRS Health and Sysmex both possess a strong customer focus and extensive industry experience.
“The agreement will be mutually beneficial for both companies and the healthcare organizations we service,” says Sysmex’s CEO, James Webster. “We are excited to be working with LRS Health – they have a long-standing reputation in Australia, highly regarded products and strong knowledge of the local industry.”
LRS Health’s products for hospital billing (MediBILL) and blood bank are installed in many public hospital sites in Australia. These products have been specifically developed to comply with the unique industry requirements. Sysmex’s Delphis LIS will intergrate with these products.
By intergrating complementary products, the companies are well-matched to supply a robust, end-to-end laboratory information system.

Sysmex evolved in 2001 when New Zealand software specialists Delphic Medical Systems Ltd was purchased by global IVD giant Sysmex Corporation of Japan. Sysmex’s 26 year success in health IT has been built on the foundation their Delphic laboratory information system suite, a benchmark product in NZ and market leader. Sysmex’s clinical data repository product Eclair is widely used in regionally shared patient record systems in NZ, Australia, USA, Europe, Canada and Asia-Pacific.
