REMINDER: Awarepoint's Participation at HFMA's Annual Conference Will Focus on RTLS ROI

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - June 15, 2009) -


WHO: Awarepoint (http://www.awarepoint.com/) and partner Skytron (http://www.skytron.us/) will co-exhibit at Booth 913 during HFMA's 2009 ANI: The Healthcare Finance Conference (http://www.hfma.org/events/ani), a premier annual conference for healthcare finance professionals. Awarepoint will be showcasing its Real-time Location Solutions (RTLS) that add location awareness to a variety of healthcare applications for operational efficiency, patient flow and patient safety. Demonstrations at the booth will show healthcare finance professionals how location awareness can impact financial and clinical outcomes with a high and quick return on investment (ROI). Awarepoint's T2S sterilizable RTLS tag (http://www.awarepoint.com/tags.html), the only clinically validated sterilizable Active RFID-RTLS asset tag on the market today, provides immense new opportunities for both medical instrumentation tray management and patient tracking/workflow automation. The hard dollar return on investment (ROI) for hospitals using RTLS to manage instrumentation trays is vast.
