Awarepoint Announces the Big RTLS Music Video Contest
Date:8/23/2010

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Awarepoint Corporation, a major provider of enterprise networked awareness solutions and Real-time Location System (RTLS) applications for hospitals, today announced  The Big RTLS Music Video Contest.  Open to all hospital staff in the United States to submit entries, the contest is based around the significant challenge of the timely and reliable location of costly medical equipment.  Given the increased need for knowing the location, status and movement of equipment in hospitals and the challenges this presents to hospital staff who are responsible for patient care, Awarepoint is hoping to give contestants a stronger voice in this universal hospital challenge -- assuring the right equipment, in the right place, at the right time.

Along with the Laryngospams, a group of registered nurse anesthetists who produce healthcare-themed music, Valerie Fritz, Senior Vice President of Awarepoint, created "Now We Find More," a song parody using the tune, 'Satisfaction©' by the Rolling Stones®.  "I based the lyrics on time-sensitive medical equipment issues in hospitals -- environments which are dynamic and operationally challenging where people and equipment are constantly on the move.  Often times, critical equipment isn't where it's supposed to be, which becomes an inconvenience for the hard-working clinicians who care for patients.  The song also addresses the significant financial burden this places on hospital managers -- who often rent or over-purchase equipment to assure adequate supply," Fritz said.  "This contest is an opportunity to engage more hospitals in the hopes of using RTLS to shift this paradigm."

Awarepoint's Real-time Awareness Solution provides nurses, technicians and support staff with actionable information to help increase equipment utilization, impact rental reduction, and reduce lost or misplaced equipment. Without an RTLS solution, the inability to find critical assets in a timely manner can adversely affect patient care, clinical outcomes, staff productivity and job satisfaction.

In addition to being featured on Awarepoint's YouTube channel and The AwarepointBlog, winners of the Big RTLS Music Video Contest will receive the following prizes:

  • 1st Place: $2,500 to their hospital's department or the hospital's charity of choice and an iPad® 16GB/3G/WiFi
  • 2nd Place: $1,000  to their hospital's department or the hospital's charity of choice and an iPad 16GB/WiFi
  • Honorable Mention: An iTouch® 8GB

To get hospitals inspired during the contest period, The AwarepointBlog will continue to post some of the best hospital music video spots we find.  The Company's first inspiration was these rapping nurses in a Boston hospital who've created a hilarious hand-washing video, as well as the Laryngospams singing "Waking Up is Hard to Do".

The contest deadline is 11:59pm on January 15, 2011 and all music video entries, in the form of a high resolution video file or DVD, can be sent to jlong@awarepoint.com, or submitted via mail to Awarepoint Video Contest, 600 West Broadway, Suite 250, San Diego, CA 92101.  Visit http://www.awarepoint.com/musicvideocontest.html to obtain a copy of the lyrics and MP3 song, or for additional contest rules.
