At this exclusive Awarepoint event, RTLS hospital clients were provided the opportunity to connect with other hospitals to share information and use cases on how RTLS solutions are positively impacting their healthcare organization; preview new product innovations from Awarepoint, and participate in client user group feedback sessions to help assure Awarepoint's next generation hardware and software road map remain in line with RTLS in healthcare market maturity.
The Viewpoint 2011 conference featured a comprehensive agenda commencing with a full day of RTLS hospital client presentations. Key department heads from each hospital outlined how real-time awareness applications impact their specific hospital operational areas, and shared real-world learnings on how to maximize RTLS benefits. The hospital presentations were focused on several key areas of RTLS impact in healthcare:

This conference was an opportunity to validate how our products and services can help meet those needs," said Jay Deady, Awarepoint President and CEO.
