Raytheon to Provide California First Responders and Healthcare Personnel Electronic Patient Tracking System
Date:7/31/2009

LONG BEACH, Calif., July 31, 2009 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) will provide an electronic patient tracking system to a public health-led team of first responders and hospital personnel in Long Beach, Calif., that will improve the availability of patient information.

The EPTS, an information technology solution, facilitates the triage, treatment and transport of victims during mass casualty incidents by providing selected patient data to all involved parties, improving continuity of care and family notification response time.

"Raytheon has a long history of providing California first responders with open-standard communications solutions to improve efficiency and enhance community safety," said William Iannacci, director of Civil Communications Solutions for Raytheon. "Applying our systems integration expertise with our proven technology enables the California public safety community to more effectively share critical information."

The system uses a combination of barcode and radio frequency identification tags to identify the patient's location, medical status, and personal information. This information is wirelessly transferred to a secure Raytheon-hosted, Web-enabled database that provides the patient's information to hospitals and emergency personnel.

Upon arrival at one of the participating hospitals in Long Beach, a patient's status can be tracked to improve efficiency and ensure information accuracy. The system includes data interoperability tools and services provided by DropFire, Inc. This data will continue to be collected until the patient is admitted, released, or transferred to another hospital.

Raytheon Company, with 2008 sales of $23.2 billion, is a technology and innovation leader specializing in defense, homeland security and
