NEW ORLEANS, March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Oregon Health & Science University
received an award last night from the RFID in Healthcare
Consortium/Intelligent Hospital for the "2013 Best Comprehensive Integration"
of advanced health care technology. The award was presented at the Healthcare
Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) 2013 conference and
exhibition, currently underway in New Orleans.

Oregon Health & Science University implemented an interoperability solution
that combined Stanley Healthcare's Wi-Fi Real-Time Location System (RTLS) and
Asset Tracking & Management with CareFusion's Alaris^® IV pump hardware and
utilization data. The combined system enabled Oregon Health & Science
University to better understand the location and utilization of each IV pump
at its hospital, and made it easier for clinicians, equipment managers and
biomedical engineers to quickly locate and view near real-time utilization of
the pumps.

"Through the integrated Stanley Healthcare and CareFusion solution, we not
only know where each pump is located, but if it is currently in use or if it
is available for the next patient," said Dennis Minsent, Director of Clinical
Technology Services at Oregon Health & Science University. "This has greatly
increased our efficiency in how we deliver IV medication to our patients."

In addition to the benefits of a real-time view of IV pump location and
utilization, the integrated system can also provide valuable insight into the
various pump modules being used in different parts of the hospital. The
Alaris^® System has several types of pump modules (large volume pump, patient
controlled analgesia, syringe, respiratory monitoring), and the hospital can
view utilization of each module to determine frequency of use or if there are
opportunities to redeploy a module to another area of the hospital where it
would have higher utilization.

The new interoperable solution also enables clinicians to push a button on the
RFID tag to notify equipment managers or biomedical engineers if the pump
needs to be cleaned or serviced. The notification is sent to the appropriate
department and they are able to easily locate and retrieve the pump for
