Who are we?
We may be in the business of software development, but at our heart is an intrinsic and practical knowledge of the issues faced by healthcare practitioners. Unlike some of our competitors, we’ve gained this through many years of working in pathology labs and other healthcare establishments across Australia.

Andrew Edgley, Chairman & Chief Software Architect A systems analyst and programmer for more than 25 years, Andrew helped to write one of the first ever veterinary practice management systems in Australia.
Eight years later, in 1988, he designed the MediPATH program suite with business partner Mike Ralston – and he’s been intimately involved with its development ever since.
A natural problem-solver, Andrew has also been responsible for the development of the SeqHepB web site, which provides automated genetic analysis for drug resistance in Hepatitis B, and Australian Crest – a similar tool for use in HIV cases.
Andrew is a firm believer in good service and direct communication with clients, and attributes much of MediPATH’s success to our client-friendly approach.
Yvonne Sherlock, Operations Manager, Pathology Yvonne joined LRS Health from her Pathology IT consultancy. She has 15 years bench experience as a multi skilled Medical Scientist prior to completing her Post Graduation qualifications in Computing.
Yvonne has worked in major national commercial Pathology Laboratories in IT software development and support, and held the position of Manager Pathology Applications at Healthscope for 7 years. Prior to that, Yvonne held senior positions in Triple G, a major LIS vendor, as a Site Implementation Expert, Testing Manager, Y2K Implementation Manager and International Quality Control and Software Deployment Manager. Yvonne has successfully managed large and complex software environments, upgrades and
installations, managing teams of IT professionals, and analysts.
In the capacity of consultant, Yvonne has worked with multi-national corporations in the evaluation and marketing of their products to the Australian Health Industry.
Glen Kleidon, Senior Software Engineer Glen’s first commercial application – a computer game for the Commodore 64 – was published in 1985 before he’d even gone to university.
Some 12 years later, while working as a cytotechnologist at Townsville Pathology Laboratory, he developed the AutoScan Imaging System for Pathology Laboratories. The system is still in use today.
Glen joined LRS in 1990 to work on EQuery – the first internet based secure messaging system used by a pathology laboratory – developed in response to spiralling X400 service costs. Since then, EQuery has evolved into AllTalk.
Glen has a Bachelor of Science in Marine Biology, certificates of Technology for the Australian Society of Cytology and the International Academy of Cytology, a Graduate Diploma of Education and a Graduate Diploma in Applied Computing.
Kerrie Robbins, System Integration Specialist Previously the Pathology IT Manager at St Vincent’s Hospital in Melbourne, Kerrie is an experienced medical laboratory scientist and has extensive experience managing IT implementations in the hospital environment.
The rest of the team Our team at LRS Health is a growing team of talented individuals with extensive experience in the healthcare industry.
Many of our staff have been with us for over ten years, which isn’t just an indication of the great working environment we have out at Hughesdale. It demonstrates our shared commitment to the development of a suite of products that makes a genuine difference to healthcare professionals in Australia.
We believe in putting our clients first and developing our products in line with the needs of practicing clinicians – not the assumptions of software developers.
And that means we all pull together. [back to top]
