Press Release Summary: RadarFind Expands National Team with Addition of Three Industry Veterans
Press Release Body: MORRISVILLE, N.C. (September 23, 2008) Ė RadarFind Corporation, a health care technology company offering a patented Real Time Location System (RTLS) for tracking medical equipment and patients, announces the addition of three industry veterans to its staff as the company continues to expand in response to the increasing demand for real-time asset and patient tracking in the health care industry.
Matthew Weisensee joins RadarFind as the Vice President of Sales and Business Development, Stephen Snell as the Director of Hardware Engineering, and Ryan Bloom as the Director of Software Development.
ďThe RadarFind RTLS has proven to be a powerful new resource for the health care industry to improve operational efficiency and control costs, which is driving our tremendous growth since the product launched in May 2007,Ē said RadarFind Chief Executive Officer Terry Kane, M.D. ďMatt, Stephen and Ryan have proven expertise in their fields and will enable RadarFind to adapt to changing business needs as we serve our existing hospital customers, continue to build relationships with hundreds of hospitals and health systems nationwide, and invest in research to advance our patented technology.Ē
The RadarFind RTLS, developed by health care professionals for hospitals, is an asset and patient tracking system designed to help hospital staff more quickly locate critical patient care equipment and improve clinical workflow. RadarFind is also the only RTLS to provide valuable, accurate information about a deviceís status (in use, available, or needs cleaning) and location history, which can assist a hospitalís infection control and surveillance. Unlike other conventional RFID and WiFi location-tracking solutions, RadarFind functions independently of a hospitalís critical IT network, requires no new wiring in patient areas and can provide room-level accuracy with no need for ongoing calibration. All RadarFind tags and readers are embedded with a temperature sensor as standard equipment, suitable for many automatic temperature-sensing applications within hospitals. The RTLS technology platform is also ideal for patient tracking based upon the frequency band used (900 MHz).
Weisensee has more than 20 years experience in business development for the health care, service and technology industries. Most recently, Weisensee was Vice President of Business Development for Awarepoint Corporation, where he led sales and marketing efforts in addition to building strategic partnerships with key manufacturers and other organizations. Prior to Awarepoint, he served in a senior management capacity for several global services, health care, consulting and security-focused companies, including Gallup, Inc., Weiser Security Services and The Wackenhut Corporation. His expertise in the security industry will be used to leverage emerging synergies between RTLS and enterprise health-care security applications, including video analytics, access control and integrated security solutions. Weisenseeís background includes extensive experience driving growth in companies. Under his leadership, he will guide RadarFindís sales and business development team through a period of national expansion.
