Healthcare Association of Hawaii Chooses Everbridge as Key Element to Preparedness Amongst Statewide Hospitals

Everbridge Exclusively Selected as Hawaii Statewide Notification Provider for Healthcare

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 8, 2011) - Everbridge, the world's recognized leader in incident notification systems, today announced an exclusive agreement with the Healthcare Association of Hawaii (HAH) to provide incident notification solutions to all hospitals and health organizations throughout Hawaii. In an effort to enhance preparedness and response for unforeseen events ranging from tsunamis, earthquakes and other weather-related events, HAH unanimously chose Everbridge to service their body of 115 coalition members. The selection of Everbridge expands the notification provider's existing relationship with the State of Hawaii into an exclusive statewide healthcare deployment.

As the leader in healthcare incident notification, Everbridge understands that communication is often the number one gap in after action reporting, and is all too often the weak link identified in the aftermath of a disaster. Coordinating individual facilities across a state, especially one with the unique geography of Hawaii, can prove especially challenging, as disparate facility-level systems can often fail to provide statewide coverage. Creating a reliable, fully redundant and interoperable communications platform is what HAH sought, especially after the lessons learned from this past spring's Japanese tsunami threat. With the Everbridge service, member hospitals and health care facilities can communicate quickly and effortlessly, targeting specific response teams of doctors, support staff and security personnel to increase the tempo of response in real-time to any event.

"Everbridge has allowed us to effectively message all, or any portion of, our membership with an easy to use system that is available from our offices, homes, or our mobile devices," stated William Richter of the Healthcare Association of Hawaii. "Whether it is a hurricane, a tsunami, or a terrorist act, Everbridge helps us meet that higher level of preparedness by allowing us to target messaging to the required individuals or groups in an expedient and efficient manner with the degree of flexibility required during disasters. As we implement Everbridge in hospitals and other healthcare facilities, we have seen the response has been overwhelmingly positive."

"We are pleased to add the Healthcare Association of Hawaii as yet another regional organization among our significant roster of over 650 healthcare providers that depend on Everbridge's quick and reliable notification services to manage unforeseen incidents," said Cinta Putra, Chief Executive Officer of Everbridge. "In light of the tsunami this year, it is especially critical that hospitals across the State of Hawaii have proper tools that they can rely upon to communicate both quickly and effectively."
