Anne Arundel Medical Center to Present Versus RTLS at AAMI

TRAVERSE CITY, MI--(Marketwire - June 22, 2010) -  Versus Technology, Inc. ("Versus") (PINKSHEETS: VSTI) will be exhibiting at the AAMI 2010 Conference and Expo, June 26-28 in Tampa, Fl. The expo, which focuses on using technology to advance healthcare delivery, is an opportunity for Versus to demonstrate the advantages of an accurate IR/RFID Real-time Location System (RTLS) in healthcare. Taking center stage at this year's expo is the Versus Advantages™ Asset Tracking solution, part of the enterprise locating offering that includes patient flow and event automation.

Richard Constantineau, Manager of Biomedical Engineering at Anne Arundel Medical Center, will be returning with encore presentations of "The Advantages of Versus' Real-time Asset Tracking." Constantineau will follow-up his AAMI 2009 presentation which described the immediacy with which Anne Arundel obtained Return on Investment (ROI) and nursing satisfaction. New this year are the impressive outcomes of location and utilization studies related to big-ticket mobile equipment -- complete with hard-dollar net savings results.

This presentation is designed for AAMI attendees who are ready to make global improvements to visibility and communication, but who question the value of doing it now. A recent HIMSS Vantage Point Survey (June 2010) indicates that 72% of healthcare IT professionals recognize RFID/RTLS as playing an important role in enhancing safety and efficiency, but 25% have not seen vendors produce the necessary ROI for RTLS to demand budget priority.

Attendees will have multiple opportunities to learn more about the benefits of tracking assets in real-time. Constantineau will deliver his presentation on Saturday, June 26th at 6:30 pm as well as on Sunday, June 27th at 5:00 pm. Throughout the Expo, Constantineau and other experts in RTLS will be available in Versus' booth, #109, to discuss real-world outcomes related to recall events, inventory reduction, fleet management and alert automation. An ROI calculation tool, developed based on actual customer experiences, will be available for show attendees.
