Dedalus SpA develops and distributes health and laboratory informatics software solutions.


Sometime in 2014 the company removed Dedalus LIS from its website. It's assumed the company no longer offers its LIS product.

In June 2016, Dedalus SpA announced it had completed the acquisition of NoemaLife SpA, stating "[t]he integration of these two companies is consistent with our reciprocal values: continuous investments in innovation, a high level of service to clients, and respect for the rules."[1] As of November 2020, it appears Dedalus is still offering the former NoemaLife's DNLab LIS.

In December 2019, Agfa-Gevaert Group and its subsidiary Agfa HealthCare NV announced that it had plans to sell a chunk of its clinical IT business, with the Dedalus Group interested in purchasing it.[2] The sale was finalized on May 5, 2020, with Dedalus Group acquiring the "German, French, Austrian, Swiss and Brazilian activities related to clinical, diagnostic and hospital management software (HCIS) and related to IT imaging systems (PACS-RIS of radiology, cardiology, etc.) for a total enterprise value of €975 million."[3] This included the acquisition of Agfa HealthCare's ORBIS, Hexalis, and Bioserveur. Agfa would retain its enterprise imaging solutions "in all other geographies."[4]

In June 2021, Dedalus announced it had acquired German informatics business Vendor:OSM Vertrieb GmbH, with the two businesses having reportedly having worked together since 2006.[5][6] As of October 2021, the OSM website appears to still be operating independently of Dedalus, and OSM is presumed to be a subsidiary, though it's not clear.
