SAN DIEGO, Nov. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Awarepoint Corporation, today announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has awarded the company four additional patents, which brings their total portfolio to 20 and bolsters the company's position as the leading innovator of real-time wireless location systems (RTLS) for hospitals.

The new patents broadly cover Awarepoint's most accurate mesh-based location algorithm to date, methods for detecting improperly sterilized medical equipment, and wireless technology architectures that drive enterprise wide visibility applications:

  • Patent No. 8,033,462 for a wireless tracking system and method of automatically determining if medical and surgical supplies and equipment have been properly sterilized, helping to improve patient safety and quality of care.  
  • Patents No. 8,031,120 and 8,040,238 provide a process to enhance the detection of the exact location of hospital equipment and medical and surgical supplies.
  • Patent No.  8,041,369 describes multiple wireless technologies that precisely track hospital workflows, improve enterprise-wide visibility, and optimize revenue cycle management.

"Our latest patents protect the investment we've made in providing the best technology for our customers," said Awarepoint Chief Technology Officer Matt Perkins, one of the inventors named in the patents. "Not only are we the most effective solution for driving enterprise workflow and enterprise visibility, but we continue to be the only company that has demonstrated tags that can survive a full sterilization cycle and alert on decontamination and sterilization violations prior to patient usage."    

"From the beginning, we recognized that a one-size-fits-all approach to RTLS technology would not work for hospitals," Perkins said. "Our continuous innovation strategy enables us to deliver multiple technologies to meet our customers' specific needs."
