Equipment

The CareView system includes several components:

  1. The room equipment which is comprised of an infrared camera and CareView’s specialized Room Control Platform (RCP). The camera is typically mounted in the ceiling tile at the footwall. It is connected to the RCP which is placed behind the television under a cover or up above the ceiling tile.
  2. The Nurse Station Monitor which is typically a 23” touch screen monitor that displays the video feeds, safety, and privacy options in a secure location inside the nurse’s station. These are usually connected to the hospital’s switched ethernet network via a designated data drop at the desk.
  3. The Head-End Server which includes:
    • Application Server
    • Video Gateway
    • CMTS- Cable Modem Termination System
    • Firewall

All of the Head-End equipment typically resides in the hospital data center or a separate communication closet that takes up about 7U rack space or in a dedicated removable cage. All equipment is installed and maintained by CareView and includes 24/7 technical support and routine training.

With clinical video monitoring, patient satisfaction, an electronic bed board, and wireless communications CareView presents a compelling value proposition for hospitals looking to decrease costs and improve quality.
