Awarepoint Continues Explosive Growth

Healthcare RTLS Leader Reports Significant Client Activation and Sales Expansion

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 8, 2012) - Awarepoint Corporation, the largest dedicated healthcare real-time location system (RTLS) corporation, announced continued strong momentum in the third quarter. New client contracts and activations have increased as more hospitals achieve significant documented outcomes from Awarepoint's technology and software solutions in key areas such as capital and operating cost reductions; patient safety, capacity management with associated top line revenue increases, and staff satisfaction and patient experience score improvements.

Awarepoint has added more than 20 million square feet of coverage across 32 sites and more than 82,000 newly deployed RTLS tags representing a 226% deployment growth year over year.

Recent Client Activations completed include:

  • Kaiser Permanente (multiple sites)
  • Yale New Haven Health System (New Haven, Conn.)
  • Monongahela Valley Hospital (Monongahela, Pa.)
  • Vidant Medical Center (Greenville, N.C.)

Recently Executed Client Contracts include:

  • Kaiser Permanente (multiple sites)
  • Aurora Healthcare (Milwaukee, Wi)
  • Nemours Children's Hospital (Orlando)
  • New York - Presbyterian / Columbia University Medical Center (NYC) 
  • Promedica Health System (Toledo, Ohio)

  • University Medical Center (New Orleans)
  • Care New England / Women & Infants Hospital (Providence, R.I.)
  • San Joaquin General (CA)
  • Monongahela Valley Hospital (Monongahela, Pa.)

"It is exciting to help drive growing hospital adoption of RTLS by providing rapid time-to-value, reduced equipment and other supply chain costs; streamlined workflows, and quality and safety improvements enterprise wide," explained Jay Deady, CEO of Awarepoint. "It is really gratifying to see how client deployment growth and client achieved outcomes are now driving sales in the healthcare RTLS industry versus just the promise of such outcomes that existed only a few years ago."

Cerner Health Conference

As part of its workflow improvement initiatives, Awarepoint began integrating its awareED solution with Rauland Responder's new Staff Assignment interface to streamline processes for nurses in the emergency department (ED) as well as improve overall productivity and patient care. Awarepoint's seamless integration of its RTLS technology with Cerner's CareAware Tracking™ application is another example of how Awarepoint improves productivity and financial and clinical outcomes. The integrated solution combining RTLS technology, software and professional services will be demonstrated at the 27th Annual
Cerner Health Conference (CHC), Oct. 7-9, at Booth # 1511.
