Signify Premium Insight: Ripples but no Splash for CompuGroup Medical’s Medicus Deal
Published: January 24, 2023
CompuGroup Medical (CGM) returned to the Laboratory Information Systems (LIS) acquisition trail last month, bringing US lab management software vendor Medicus into its corporate portfolio. The deal solidifies CGM’s position as the largest LIS software provider to physician office labs and reference labs in the US.
While on the face of it this is a decent situation for CGM, the acquisition will deliver little revenue upside. It will also have little impact on the wider battle playing out between LISs implemented as part of a broader EHR rollout (EHR-LIS), and deals around independent best of breed (BoB)-LIS vendors.
