LINET and HPA Forge Strategic Partnership in Australia

Elevating In-Bed Care Management for Caregivers and Patients 

Sydney – 02.05.2024 In a landmark move, LINET, a global leader in healthcare solutions, and HPA, Australia’s top provider of healthcare service and support, have joined forces. This powerful alliance aims to transform in-bed care management throughout Australia, providing a full spectrum of innovative care solutions from beds and stretchers to chairs designed for intensive care, pressure care, acute care, obstetrics, and dialysis. 

This strategic partnership will bring forth unparalleled resources, including advanced education and training modules for caregivers through online platforms, in-service workshops, and personalised support. Such initiatives are designed to bolster caregiver confidence and expertise, ensuring that every patient receives the highest standard of care. 

Shawn Wigham, Managing Director at HPA, shared his excitement about the renewed partnership: “HPA is thrilled to rekindle our collaboration with LINET, building on a foundation laid 15 years ago. Together, we are set to elevate our offerings, equipping caregivers with cutting-edge technologies and comprehensive educational resources to enhance patient care across Australia.” 

Both LINET and HPA are not only committed to superior quality and performance but are also leaders in environmental stewardship. They exceed standards in Quality Management Systems and Environmental Management Systems, actively working on initiatives that reduce energy consumption and maximise the use of renewable resources. 

The partnership promises to be more than just a distribution deal; it is a holistic approach to healthcare solutions. Petr Foit, Managing Director of LINET Australia, emphasised the strategic nature of the alliance, saying, “I am delighted to start a strategic cooperation with HPA, we are not talking about a simple distribution but about a partnership offering complete solutions to our customers, LINET has the highest goal of becoming the preferred solution to our customer.” 

With HPA’s deep roots in the hospital environment and a robust portfolio that includes healthcare ICT, patient monitoring, and life support, the integration of LINET’s product range represents a seamless progression towards comprehensive patient care.
