    MONTREAL, Sept. 24 /CNW Telbec/ - LMS Medical Systems (AMEX:  LMZ;
TSX:LMZ), a healthcare technology company and developer of the CALM(R)
clinical information system and risk management software for obstetrics, today
announced that Horizon Perinatal Care(TM), the first obstetrics (OB)/perinatal
information system designed to support continuity of care between the labor
and delivery (L&D) department and other hospital departments and units,

history and interventions, documentation and bar-code medication

of many dedicated people at both companies," said Diane Côté, President and
CEO of LMS. "Bringing the product to life with LMS obstetrical solutions will
mean safer deliveries for expectant mothers while providing clinicians a
simpler, much needed system within which to work."
