Lincor looks to open up Australia, New Zealand markets

Hospital technology venture signs distribution deal

Medical technology systems developer Lincor Solutions has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with an Australian company to market its wares in that country as well as in New Zealand for the first time.

Hills Health Solutions will offer Lincor’s technology in a services model in the two countries, which contain more than 95,000 hospital and senior care beds. Hills already has a presence in more than 300 facilities that have more than 40,000 beds.

“Lincor's solution is world class and perfectly complements Hills’ existing Merlon and Questek nurse call communications system and HTR patient entertainment platform,” said Peta Jurd, head of Hills Health Solutions. “This platform will usher in a shift away from the traditional bedside clipboard and empower patients and clinicians to achieve better experiences and improved clinical outcomes.”

The platform developed by Lincor, which relocated its headquarters to Nashville from Ireland last year, features both bedside communication and entertainment services for patients as well as an enterprise back end that includes medical records, medication and test results functions.

"We are delighted with this partnership with Hills as, by working together, the two companies can deliver a world-class patient experience in Australia and New Zealand,” Lincor Chairman and CEO Dan Byrne said.
