CareView Communications Executes Agreement with Baptist Health
LEWISVILLE, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CareView Communications, Inc. (“CareView” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: CRVW), an information technology provider to the healthcare industry, today announced the signing of an agreement with Baptist Health Care, Pensacola, FL. Baptist Health Care is a not-for-profit healthcare organization based in Northwest Florida that includes three hospitals, four medical parks, the Andrews Institute for Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, and a large network of primary care and specialty physicians.
The agreement calls for the installation of the CareView Patient Safety System®, which facilitates continuous remote patient monitoring for patients who may be at risk of harm due to falls, behavioral issues or suicidal ideation. The CareView solution leverages an in-room camera with audio capabilities and patented Virtual Bed Rails® and Virtual Chair Rails® technologies to improve patient safety. The Virtual Rails use machine learning to identify when the patient’s movement indicates a fall may be imminent, and subsequently alerts the Safety Technician. Pre-recorded messages or two-way audio allow for direct communication with the patient. The System offers a considerable impact on sitter reduction and overall patient safety.
Sandra McRee, CareView’s Chief Operating Officer, stated, “We are pleased to be working with Baptist Health Care and know that our System is the solution to address their needs to reduce patient falls and increase patient safety. We look forward to supporting the success of our newest partner.”
