Awarepoint's RTLS to Be Featured at the Intelligent Hospital Pavilion, and American College of Clinical Engineering at HIMSS13
SAN DIEGO, CA, Feb 26, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Awarepoint Corporation, the largest real-time location system (RTLS)
corporation dedicated exclusively to healthcare, today announced that
its integrated RTLS platform will be featured at the RFID in
Healthcare Consortium (RHCC) Intelligent Hospital(TM) (IH) Pavilion
at HIMSS13 (Healthcare Information Management Systems Society 2013
Annual Conference & Exhibition), March 4th-6th, in New Orleans.
Visitors to the IH Pavilion will interact with RTLS and RFID
applications that can improve patient care and safety while reducing
operating expenses. Participants will explore Awarepoint's approach
to improving asset management, patient flow, and care team efficiency
in the interactive Emergency Room and Surgical Suite, as well as
Awarepoint's IH Pavilion kiosk.
Awarepoint offers the only complete RTLS solution for optimizing
healthcare workflow. "We look forward to demonstrating how our
hospital clients are leveraging RTLS to gain a competitive
advantage," stated Jay Deady, president and CEO of Awarepoint. "We
will demonstrate our ability to capture real-time data that
automatically populates the EHR and other HIT systems and produces
immediate, actionable information that helps maximize the value of
these major investments."
Awarepoint is also sponsoring the American College of Clinical
Engineering's (ACCE) Clinical Engineering & IT/ACCE Awards Reception
on Monday, March 4th at 6:30 pm at the Marriott Convention Center,
River Bend Room. During this event, Deady will describe how
innovative hospitals are forging new frontiers in RTLS by creating
novel patient safety guardrails and fostering patient flow, thereby
improving overall quality and satisfaction.
"Awarepoint is proud to sponsor ACCE and their mission of enhancing
the profession of clinical engineering through advocacy, patient
safety initiatives and professional development," Deady said. "We
share their commitment and look forward to increasing awareness about
how ACCE and HIMSS members can integrate and leverage RTLS solutions
with medical devices and clinical systems to transform clinical,
operational, and financial outcomes."
"We are very grateful for Awarepoint's support of our organizational
initiatives, as well as our HIMSS and AAMI programs," said Mario
Castaneda, Past President of ACCE. "As the pressure of health reform
continues to bear down on hospitals, our members appreciate
Awarepoint's genuine collaboration and dedication to making patient
care safer, more efficient and of higher quality."
HIMSS attendees can also see a demonstration of Awarepoint's new Bed
and Bay Sensor at Booth #6918. This new sensor uses non-disruptive,
plug-and-play technology pioneered by Awarepoint to provide a higher
degree of location accuracy than previously available. Mobile
equipment and patient and caregiver interactions can now be precisely
tracked in locations with tight-bed spacing or that are separated
only by curtains, such as the emergency department (ED), including
triage areas, and pre- and post-anesthesia care. The device was
successfully tested at Delaware-based Christiana Care Health System
and will be generally available on March 31, 2013. Booth visitors
will also learn about Awarepoint's comprehensive, interoperable RTLS
offerings and how they are enabling hospitals to improve patient
care, streamline workflow and boost productivity.
Awarepoint's aware360 degreesSuite automates and streamlines asset
management, ED and OR care, capacity management, patient flow,
caregiver coordination, quality and regulatory compliance, and
patient and staff satisfaction. The suite spans the entire hospital
enterprise, leveraging tag location and movement to track report on,
and proactively improve asset, staff, and patient workflows.
Awarepoint delivers the healthcare industry's only
cloud-based, Real-time Location System (RTLS) on a single platform of
integrated software, technology, and managed services. By enabling
predictive workflows to better manage assets, patients, and personnel
across the enterprise, the aware360 degreesSuite allows
administrators and care providers to advance the quality, efficiency,
experience, and economics of care. Dedicated exclusively to
healthcare, Awarepoint's experience and reliable, proven solutions
power the largest healthcare RTLS deployments in the world. For more
