CareView Communications Releases Version 5.5

LEWISVILLE, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CareView Communications, Inc. (“CareView” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: CRVW), an information technology provider to the healthcare industry, today announced its latest updates to its CareView Patient Safety System®, Version 5.5, which includes system integration with Mobile Heartbeat Unified Clinical Communications, paving the way for a new paradigm in clinical workflow management.

The integration with Mobile Heartbeat allows for direct communication with a patient’s care team at the push of a button, which vastly improves response times for unit staff to respond to patients at risk. Mobile Heartbeat enables health system staff to communicate and collaborate more effectively using their patient-centric mobile app. Mobile Heartbeat cites an 87% increase in nurse call response time using their platform, as calling workflow delays are avoided. For Mobile Heartbeat users that can take minutes off response time for a CareView qualified alarm from the patient safety technician.

Secondly, CareView has developed two new user reports designed to streamline communication across staff members and improve overall patient safety, specifically by increasing awareness of patient coverage, conditions, and events.

Finally, the release of Version 5.5 also includes SAML 2.0 integration and authentication support, which allows users to access multiple web applications using one set of login credentials.

“We are engaging our healthcare partners and identifying ways to ensure the CareView Patient Safety System is being utilized at full potential,” said Shauna Buck, CareView’s Senior Director of Clinical Operations.  “These new features represent expanded safety and security measures across the platform.”

“The Version 5.5 release and the integration with Mobile Heartbeat allows the CareView Patient Safety System to improve clinical workflows and response times, providing a seamless solution across various clinical tools,” said Steve Johnson, CareView’s CEO.  “CareView is pleased to partner with Mobile Heartbeat to improve care coordination and foster better patient care.”

The CareView Patient Safety System, including its patented Virtual Bed Rails® and Virtual Chair Rails®, uses predictive technology to differentiate between normal patient movements and behaviors of an at-risk patient. This results in fewer false alarms, quicker staff interventions, and a significant reduction in patient falls.
