Awarepoint Expands Cloud-Based Computing to Patient and Staff Tracking

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/28/13 -- Awarepoint Corporation, the largest real-time location system (RTLS) corporation dedicated exclusively to healthcare, announces it has made its workflow automation solutions for enterprise-wide patient and staff tracking available in the cloud, making it even easier for hospitals to improve patient flow and reduce delays in care delivery. Awarepoint will showcase its new HIPAA compliant cloud-based computing platform at the HIMSS13 Annual Conference and Exhibition, Booth #6918, in New Orleans, March 3-7, 2013.

Awarepoint currently provides the industry's only cloud-based RTLS for asset management with an integrated software, technology, and managed services solution on a single platform, which is deployed in more than 100 organizations. By moving its industry-leading patient and staff tracking solution to the cloud, Awarepoint now can deliver its entire aware360°Suite of workflow automation solutions via the Software as a Service (SaaS) model, greatly expanding its ability to deliver high-value features such as fault tolerance, durability, high availability, redundancy and scalability, at a low cost.

"Awarepoint has a long history of RTLS-based workflow automation in highly complex environments such as surgery and emergency departments. We're excited to be able to move these HIPAA-compliant applications from locally-hosted environments to the cloud," said Matt Perkins, Chief Technology Officer of Awarepoint. "The strength of Awarepoint's advanced business rules and sophisticated analytics help us automatically draw conclusions about the patient's progress in accordance with their ordered plan of care. Enterprise-wide patient and staff tracking from the cloud expedite an already rapid return on investment and speed the deployment of new functionality to clients."

With Awarepoint's SaaS model, users access the aware360°Suite of software through a web browser, while the infrastructure and platform is managed on servers at a remote location. Strict regulatory compliance policies and technology protect patient data, the infrastructure and Awarepoint's clients. The solution is powered by Amazon Web Services.

Awarepoint's aware360°Suite reduces delays in care delivery caused by a lack of information by providing a visual display of a patient's care progression. Immediate access to this dynamic data ensures that the appropriate staff and resources are available when and where they are needed. This eliminates roadblocks that often have an exponential "ripple effect", causing widespread delays in patient throughput.

Jay Deady, President and Chief Executive Officer adds, "Awarepoint has an industry-leading track record for low-touch deployment of asset management and temperature monitoring RTLS technology and software in 45-60 days, eliminating the burden on hospital staff. By adding cloud-based deployments for enterprise-wide patient and staff tracking, we can further reduce infrastructure and maintenance requirements, while delivering powerful solutions that help clinical leaders reduce variability, drive Lean processes, automate decisions and simplify workflow to streamline care delivery. The need to achieve efficient patient flow is quickly becoming a business imperative and Awarepoint's proven solution intelligently orchestrates care delivery in the most complex patient care environments."

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software?
