LEWISVILLE, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CareView Communications, Inc. (“CareView” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: CRVW), an information technology provider to the healthcare industry, has been awarded a contract for its CareView Patient Safety System®, a solution for telesitting and virtual nursing, with Vizient, Inc., the nation’s largest health care performance improvement company. Vizient’s diverse membership and customer base includes academic medical centers, pediatric facilities, community hospitals, integrated health delivery networks, and non-acute health care providers, and represents more than $130 billion in annual purchasing volume.
The multi-year agreement allows Vizient members the opportunity to benefit from pre-negotiated pricing for CareView products.
“We are excited to provide a comprehensive patient safety and virtual care solution through this new agreement with Vizient, especially at a time when nurses and caregivers are being asked to do so much more with much fewer resources,” said Steve Johnson, CareView’s CEO. “CareView’s latest equipment will address hospital staffing shortages, ease care burdens, and improve care efficiency by having a camera in every at-risk and high acuity patient room.”
The CareView Patient Safety System, anchored by 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. Furthermore, CareView Patient Safety System supports virtual nursing workflows for admissions and discharges to help reduce labor costs, improve efficiency, decrease staff burden and burnout, and enhance patient engagement.
“At CareView, our mission is simple – reduce sitter costs, lower patient falls, and inspire a culture of always-on safety and care in every facility running the CareView Patient Safety System,” stated Sandra McRee, CareView’s COO. “Under the new Vizient contract, we can continue to grow our commitment to that mission.”
