Sysmex America (Mundelein, Illinois) reported that its Health Information Technology Systems (HITS) Division has been reorganized in the U.S. with increased staffing to meet an upward shift in market demand for clinical laboratory middleware products. Ranjit Pradhan, vice president of global product management, HITS, will now head the HITS business unit in the U.S.
“The realignment of the HITS business unit reinforces Sysmex's position as a single-source solutions information technology provider by bringing the marketing, product management, engineering services, implementation/support and project management teams together into a newly-organized unit. This one-team approach will result in smooth, on-time customer implementations, improved process efficiencies, and business profitability,” said Pradhan.
Sysmex's information technology products include MOLIS WAM, a work area management system, also referred to as middleware, which can free a clinical lab technologist's time by reducing the number of routine tasks. It provides rules-based intelligence to control reflex, repeat, and add-on testing automatically, allowing technologists to save time by focusing on reviewing abnormal and specialty tests. The Sysmex WAM mediates activities between laboratory instruments and laboratory information systems (LIS), and it is scalable to meet the needs of various sized labs.
Sysmex America develops clinical diagnostics, automation, and information systems.
