HiMSS11 Annual Conference & Exhibition takes place February 20-24. Will you be there?If yes, we invite you to come check Awarepoint out in booth #1901 (you can’t miss us – we’re the ones with the red carpet!) to see what enterprise awareness is all about.
If you represent a hospital, Awarepoint asks a very provocative question: Have you overlooked the trusted technology that improves efficiency, safety and compliance in hospitals?
We’ll demonstrate healthcare solutions that include our real-time location system (RTLS) to actively track, monitor and optimize the utilization and workflow of equipment and people in hospitals, and you’ll learn how our application solutions and business process improvement consulting enable hospitals to achieve outcome improvements in the areas of efficiency, safety and compliance. We consider that 'enterprise awareness' and it's a big deal.
So much so that we were included in Mr. HIStalk’s Must See Vendors for HIMSS11! [We were pretty stoked to see our name in lights!] You might also be interested in this excerpt from Awarepoint’s Chief Technology Officer, Matt Perkins who answered the HISTalk Blog question: “what will be the hot topics at HIMSS this year?” He really sums up our challenge to hospital executives:
“It’s going to be tough to break through the focus on incentives for Electronic Health Record adoption and associated best practice standards of care. However, without immediate, real-time information on location and condition of assets – and the analytics, dashboards and workflow modeling around usage and availability of equipment and resources needed to care for patients – the best intentions and technology spend are missing a vital component.” Click here to read his full quote in HISTalks's post titled HIT Vendor executives on HiMSS11.
In addition to live booth demonstrations of bed-level location tracking, plus 100% guaranteed hand washing documentation and other patient, staff and equipment workflow demonstrations, we’re hosting a series of Fireside Chat learning sessions every day. While we’re not (yet) one of those mega vendors who can afford to host giant gala events, we do aim to make your experience enjoyable while you learn:
• Join us for an Afternoon Teach, hosted with tea, coffee and assorted bakery items,
• Drop by for a Lunch and Learn and enjoy fresh, made to order sandwiches, or
• Connect with us at a Happy Hour to partake in wine, beer and a few light appetizers
If you want to guarantee a seat at a Fireside Chat, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your preference – I’ll hold a spot just for you!
Here’s an inside scoop tip just for blog readers:
There will be 2 prize drawings every day, one random and one “hot seat”. That’s the only clue I’ll give – but if you stop by booth #1901 with “hot seat” in mind, I’m sure you’ll figure it out!
I've included the detailed schedule of Awarepoint Fireside Chat Series taking place during HiMSS11. That way you can plan out your schedule.
