Date:10/14/2011

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Awarepoint Corporation, the leading provider of real-time location system (RTLS) enabled solutions for health care, and MEDITECH, a leading supplier of Health Care Information Systems (HCIS), today announced a collaboration to integrate technologies to provide emergency departments (EDs) with real-time patient location and critical milestone tracking within MEDITECH's enterprise-wide electronic health record (EHR) software. Western, PA-based Monongahela Valley Hospital (MVH), a 210-bed facility, is the first hospital in the country to deploy the integrated solution to improve quality of care, workflow, safety, efficiency and productivity.

"This is a great enhancement for our patients and staff," said Louis J. Panza Jr., president and CEO of Monongahela Valley Hospital. "We can now automatically transmit the location of every patient in our ED in real time from awareEDTracker to MEDITECH HCIS. The integration of these two technologies is improving data accuracy and increasing the efficiency and productivity of our staff."

Using the combined solution, each patient in the ED is registered in MEDITECH and assigned a patient locating tag number which triggers Awarepoint's awareEDTracker – built on the pioneering aware360Platform - to track and report the location of the patient as well as record patient/staff interactions. When a patient changes location, or is transferred to another room, awareEDTracker communicates the patient location in real-time to MEDITECH so hospital staff can view accurate patient locations on MEDITECH EDM's big screen tracking grid and workstation status views.

awareEDTracker is part of Awarepoint's aware360Suite of RTLS-enabled solutions, which are designed to help hospitals track patients, personnel and assets enterprise-wide, automate workflow, streamline emergency and perioperative departmental throughput, monitor temperature, and ensure hand hygiene compliance. Clients consistently achieve significant outcome improvements in wait time reductions, departure without service reductions, increased patient throughput volume improvements and top-line revenue improvements.

Awarepoint will be in MEDITECH's booth (#1739) at the 2011 American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) Scientific Assembly Conference, October 15-18, in San Francisco to promote the integrated solution.
