12/15/2021

HPA was chosen from a crowded field of 24,310 applications and is recognised as one of only 239 finalists for a coveted award.

Online PR News – 15-December-2021 – Macquarie Park – HPA, an Australia-New Zealand provider of healthcare technology and supplies, today announced the organisation has been chosen as a New South Wales finalist in the 2022 Championing Health Award category for the Telstra Best of Business Awards. This is HPA's debut selection in Telstra's prestigious awards platform, which recognises businesses focusing on innovative solutions and improving health outcomes for Australians.

HPA has a well-earned reputation for innovation, particularly through integrating technology into healthcare environments to create workflow efficiencies that free up precious time for healthcare professionals and support better care for patients. The company recently restructured its product lines into four distinct divisions:

• ICT (Information Communications & Technology) & Carts: Powered and non-powered workstations on wheels, medical grade all-in-one computers, monitors, tablets, wall mounts, keyboards/mice, scanners, printers.

• Surgical: Operating lights and tables, exam and treatment lights, pendants, endoscopic camera systems.

• Patient Monitoring & Life Support: Anaesthetic machines, ECG, patient monitors, ventilators, consumables.

• Infrastructure: Pathogen control technology, furniture, architectural and circadian lighting, modular construction.

“The opportunity for technology solutions to make immediate and lasting contributions in healthcare inspires us to continually source innovative smart devices, systems, and supplies to treat each patient individually and support our customers,” said Shawn Wigham, Managing Director at HPA. “HPA operates at the forefront of innovation. Solutions localised by our ICT, Surgical, Patient Monitoring & Life Support, and Infrastructure divisions help our healthcare customers maximise safety, productivity, profitability, visibility, and ideal patient outcomes.”

The Telstra Best of Business Awards nominating committee also considered HPA's noteworthy advances in business operations efficiency and performance. All procedural elements are managed in-house on a teamwork basis, from choosing suppliers to selling solutions, assembly, logistics, and more. Carefully modulated synergies support an approach that doesn't prioritise lowest prices, but instead inspires a value- and social-based procurement framework that spotlights how products achieve desired outcomes and organically reduce overall cost of care.

Lastly, the nominating committee evaluated the role that HPA has played in championing health not just in NSW but throughout Australia. The company has an extensive footprint in healthcare facilities across the country, and since 2016 has successfully implemented:

• 15,000+ GCX and Humanscale workstations on wheels
• 1,500+ Herman Miller medications carts
• 18,000+ Wamee medical grade computers
• 1,000s of Derungs exam and treatment lights
• 100 Mindray ventilators

HPA's signature projects include telehealth solutions to facilities in Liverpool Hospital, Northern Sydney, Central Coast, and Hunter New England Local Health Districts, the electronic medical record (EMR) hardware rollout at Monash Health, and a partnership with Mindray that has installed cutting-edge patient monitors into the new emergency department at Hollywood Private Hospital. Recently HPA is making headway in the surgical field with wins on NSW Health and Ramsay Health Care tenders. Taken together, these accomplishments mark a uniquely robust contribution to improved patient care and health outcomes nationwide.

State winners will be announced in February 2022. For more information, please contact Carmen Klanberck, HPA Marketing Manager, at 1300 HPAUST or info@hpaust.
