CORK, Ireland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Lincor Solutions has secured an exclusive distribution agreement with Hills Health Solutions to deploy Lincor’s next generation interactive patient care technology in Australian and New Zealand hospitals and aged care facilities for the first time.
Hills Health Solutions will offer Lincor’s technology in a services model across the 95,000+ bed Australian and New Zealand market to help transform the patient experience by bringing interactive education, communication and entertainment technology directly to the bedside.
“Lincor's solution is world class and perfectly complements Hills’ existing Merlon and Questek nurse call communications system and HTR patient entertainment platform,” Head of Hills Health Solutions, Peta Jurd said.
“This is best-in-breed technology that will truly improve bedside point of care. Hills is committed to working with hospitals and aged care facilities to help improve safety, quality and speed of care.”
“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.”
Patients will have access to communication services, entertainment content and patient education via a touch-screen monitor at the bedside. In addition, clinicians will be able to view and update medical records, order and verify medication and review a patient’s latest scans and test results right at the bedside.
"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.
“Our research confirms interactive patient education can reduce length-of-stay, lower readmission rates, and has been shown to improve patient satisfaction.”
“The LINC Technology platform provides EMR and patient-portal access at the point of care, ensuring that all patient data is up-to-date and immediately available. This allows clinical staff to spend more quality time with the patient, thereby enhancing the patient experience.”
Lincor’s technology will be available to Australian and New Zealand hospitals immediately through Hills Health Solutions.
