Cork-headquartered company Lincor Solutions, a provider of bedside computing solutions to healthcare providers, has made two appointments to its advisory board to support its US expansion plans.
With offices in Dublin, Cork, France, Canada and the US, Lincor Solutions employs 50 people and was founded in 2003.
Its MEDIVista solution is installed at more than 20,000 beds across 855 hospitals in 15 countries throughout North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific.
Hal Andrews and Dr Peter M. Kilbridge are joining the advisory board, bringing with them extensive experience in healthcare information technology and of the US healthcare sector.
Kilbridge is a senior research director with The Advisory Board Company’s information technology group. He conducts research, analysis, and consulting on the use of information technology to support patient care.
Andrews is a co-founder of Mainland Morgan & Co, a holding company in Nashville, Tennessee with interests in healthcare, information technology and real estate. Through Cruden Bay Advisors, a wholly owned subsidiary of Mainland Morgan, he provides strategic advisory services to a variety of companies in the healthcare technology and services industries.
Potential to be a standard in US healthcare
“After spending the past year learning about the MEDIVista solution, I am convinced that it will soon be the standard of care in US hospitals,” he said. “The evolution of the MEDIVista platform since Lincor’s founding in 2003 is impressive, particularly the integration of clinical data and patient education.
“I believe the solution will deliver a solid return on investment in today’s value-based purchasing environment by creating efficiencies throughout the hospital, from patient care to food service and housekeeping. Ultimately, the MEDIVista solution could become the organising force around a variety of meaningful use initiatives.”
Richard Cooke, chief executive officer Lincor Solutions, said it was “a fantastic validation” for Lincor to have such leading experts on its team as it expands in the US, where there he believes there is a major opportunity to make touchscreen computing a standard at the point-of-care in hospitals.
“We are confident we can extend our market leading position globally to become the number one bedside computing supplier in the US market,” he said.
