SAN DIEGO – July 20, 2011 – Awarepoint Corporation, the leading provider of real-time location system (RTLS) solutions for hospitals, announced today that forty-six hospitals and health systems, including 19 new client facilities, have contracted to use the company’s RTLS and workflow software applications to improve quality of care, patient safety, operational efficiency, and employee productivity. In addition, a record number of client site activations took place during the second quarter. Reflecting strong and continued momentum for Awarepoint solutions, the new contracts and activations increased the number of Awarepoint clients to 153 hospitals and asset tags under management to 216,884.
Newly-contracted facilities include:
• Kaiser Permanente – 17 additional Northern California Hospitals & Clinics

“In Q2 of 2011, Awarepoint exceeded bookings of the entire year of 2010, with even stronger pipeline demand in place for future quarters,” according to Jay Deady, president and chief executive officer of Awarepoint. “This unprecedented growth demonstrates both an inflexion point for market demand and confidence in RTLS to deliver real financial benefits resulting from clinical efficiencies and outcome improvements, as well as for a clear preference for Awarepoint’s industry leading software and technical platform vs. a best of breed island approach that forces clients to manage a multitude of vendor solutions.” RTLS solutions are quickly becoming must-have tools for hospitals tackling asset management, compliance, and efficient patient throughput challenges.
Deady continued, “This past quarter’s performance is a testament to the efforts of our direct field sales team, account management team, and our valued reseller partners. Their efforts helped our clients achieve a level of success that they were eager to share with their peers. Their excitement about the adoption, innovation, and documented outcomes, enabled by Awarepoint solutions convinced many of our new clients to invest in RTLS.”
