Awarepoint announces the Big RTLS Music Video Contest

Aug. 31, 2010

SAN DIEGO, (August 23, 2010) – Awarepoint Corporation, a provider of enterprise networked awareness solutions and real-time location system (RTLS) applications for hospitals, today announced the Big RTLS Music Video Contest. Open to all hospital staff in the United States to submit entries, the contest is based around the significant challenge of the timely and reliable location of costly medical equipment. Given the increased need for knowing the location, status and movement of equipment in hospitals and the challenges this presents to hospital staff who are responsible for patient care, Awarepoint is hoping to give contestants a stronger voice in this universal hospital challenge – assuring the right equipment, in the right place, at the right time.

Along with the Laryngospams, a group of registered nurse anesthetists who produce healthcare-themed music, Valerie Fritz, senior vice president of Awarepoint, created “Now We Find More,” a song parody using the tune, “Satisfaction” by the Rolling Stones. “I based the lyrics on time-sensitive medical equipment issues in hospitals – environments which are dynamic and operationally challenging where people and equipment are constantly on the move,” Fritz says. “Often times, critical equipment isn’t where it’s supposed to be, which becomes an inconvenience for the hard-working clinicians who care for with patients. The song also addresses the significant financial burden this places on hospital managers – who often rent or over-purchase equipment to assure adequate supply. This contest is an opportunity to engage more hospitals in the hopes of using RTLS to shift this paradigm.”

In addition to being featured on Awarepoint’s YouTube channel and the Awarepoint blog, winners of the Big RTLS Music Video Contest will receive the following prizes: 1st Place, $2,500 to their hospital’s department or the hospital’s charity of choice and an iPad 16GB/3G/WiFi; 2nd Place, $1,000 to their hospital’s department or the hospital’s charity of choice and an iPad 16GB/WiFi; and Honorable Mention, An iTouch 8GB.

The contest deadline is 11:59 p.m. on January 15, 2011; all music video entries, in the form of a high-resolution video file or DVD, should be sent to [email protected].
