SALT LAKE CITY & SAN DIEGO -- February 27, 2013

Intermountain Healthcare and  Sotera Wireless, Inc. announced today that
Sotera’s new wireless patient monitoring platform, ViSi Mobile^®, will be
featured in Intermountain Healthcare’s booth #1810 at HIMSS 2013.

Intermountain Healthcare is a leader in providing high-quality patient care
and improving patient safety by deploying innovative technologies smartly. In
line with this initiative, Intermountain Healthcare is currently piloting ViSi
Mobile in two post-surgical care units at its flagship hospital, Intermountain
Medical Center located in Murray, Utah, as well as LDS Hospital, located in
Salt Lake City, Utah.

The FDA-approved ViSi Mobile System continuously monitors all core vital
signs—heart rate or pulse rate, electrocardiogram (ECG), blood pressure, blood
oxygenation level, respiration rate and skin temperature—all with a monitoring
accuracy typically found in intensive care units while not restricting the
patient’s mobility. ViSi Mobile is able to wirelessly transmit patient vital
sign information for remote viewing and notification, as well as to interface
with Electronic Medical Records (EMR).

WHEN:     Monday, March 4 through Wednesday, March 6, 2013
             Presentations: Monday, 3pm / Tuesday, 4pm / Wednesday, 3pm
             Live Demos: Upon request Monday through Wednesday

“Our mission to transform healthcare continues to focus on improving quality
and lowering costs,” said Frederick Holston, chief technology officer at

clinicians to provide the highest quality care. Being able to monitor all
vital signs non-invasively and continuously creates a better healing
experience for our patients and allows caregivers to detect early warning
signs.”

Mobile in its booth at HIMSS,” said Dr. Gunnar Trommer, VP Marketing at Sotera
