Omnitech Innovations Acquires LBXweb's Healthcare Activities


Omnitech Innovations consolidates its lead on the Quebec market and increases its laboratory optimization solutions offer.

SAINTE-JULIE, January 19, 2016 – Omnitech Innovations, a reference on the North-American market for the compliance and optimization of healthcare laboratories, is proud to announce the acquisition of LBXweb’s healthcare activities.

Remaining compliant with the different accreditations and standards (IQMH, Accreditation Canada, ISO, CAP, etc.) is a constant challenge for hospital labs. In Quebec, more than 98% of hospital labs using an electronic compliance solution use either the LBXweb software or the Omni-Assistant software, developed by Omnitech Innovations.

The agreement between the two companies includes the migration of all LBXweb customers to the Omni-Assistant software. Further, Noor Rahman, CEO and main designer at LBXweb, will join the Omnitech Innovations team. He will ensure a speedy and transparent migration for all customers and will also head e-learning software developments.

“This acquisition is extremely strategic, as it unifies the Quebec market », explains Sebastien St-Jean, President and CEO of Omnitech Innovations. All laboratories using the Omni-Assistant software benefit from a complete interoperability, which allows the use of innovative optimization tools, among which:

- Control of the laboratory test utilization management.
- Pathology expert tools allowing the elimination of dictation, the elimination of delays in the release of results, and the reduction of errors.
- Optimization of the laboratory inventory, reducing losses by as much as 60%.
- Sharing of best practices and control of the costs incurred by poor quality.

According to Mr. St-Jean, “the more labs that are connected to the Omni-Assistant, the more performant the software is and the better the optimization. The activation of our optimization tools would allow Quebec to save several millions of dollars per year.”
