Press Release: CareView Communications, Inc. Executes Hospital Agreement With Jefferson Hospital
Lewisville, TX – January 26, 2021 – CareView Communications, Inc. (“CareView” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: CRVW), an information technology provider to the healthcare industry, today announced the execution of a hospital agreement with Jefferson Hospital in Louisville, Georgia, a public, non-for-profit hospital providing primary medical and surgical care to Louisville and surrounding communities since 1974. Jefferson Hospital, and its three primary care facilities located in Louisville, Wadley and Wrens, Georgia, are devoted to family oriented primary care.
The three-year agreement with Jefferson Hospital was executed pursuant to the Company’s new revenue model following the expansion and modernization of its platform, which includes a variety of camera solutions specifically designed to address clinical needs in general safety, applications for use in ICUs, behavioral health settings, and negative pressure COVID-19 units. Jefferson Hospital is utilizing our platform in negative pressure COVID-19 units for continuous monitoring and patient interaction. Our telemedicine platforms are fully enabled for virtual nurse applications, which will help provide a more personal experience for patients by allowing face-to-face communication.
Sandra McRee, CareView’s Chief Operating Officer, stated, “We recently updated our contracting model to align with the preferred acquisition model in the hospital industry. We now sell hospitals our proprietary hardware and then charge them annually for a software licensing fee. We believe this model is providing a shorter approval time for each hospital contract. We are looking forward to installing our equipment in Jefferson Hospital to help them continue their excellent patient care while providing enhanced services to their negative pressure COVID-19 units and their community.”
