SAN DIEGO – October 26, 2016 – Awarepoint Corporation, an innovative and fast-growing company focused on the location services market, today announced the availability of its new Temperature Monitoring System for the Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program.
The Awarepoint Temperature Monitoring System enables medical facilities to maintain compliance to CDC VFC guidelines and ensure that vaccines are monitored within the recommended temperature range. The Awarepoint solution utilizes a Wi-Fi connected temperature probe that continuously monitors vaccine storage temperature, a wireless door mounted temperature display and alarm, and a cloud application providing temperature logging, automated reports and immediate alerts to staff members via text and email when temperature excursions begin. The ability to take immediate corrective action minimizes the chance of vaccine spoilage.
“Proper temperature monitoring protects patients from inadvertent administration of compromised vaccines and saves medical facilities from having to pay to replace damaged vaccines and schedule revaccinations,” said Carla Gallegos, Executive Vice President of Sales, Marketing, and Strategy at Awarepoint. “It also helps retain patient confidence in vaccination programs as a whole, which can mean the difference between participation and opting out.”
In addition to eliminating the need for manual temperature logging, which is often unreliable, inaccurate and misplaced, the Awarepoint VFC and environmental monitoring system can generate a variety of reports, including regulatory and temperature excursion reports and temperature histograms. Documentation and reports are securely stored on Awarepoint’s cloud and enterprise users have access to historical data. Awarepoint’s wireless temperature monitoring devices can store readings, so data history stays intact and local audible alerts remain active, even during network disruptions.
The Awarepoint Temperature Monitoring System is based on Wi-Fi, can be deployed as a standalone system, and is centrally managed, offering ease of deployment and maintenance.
