CareView Communications, Inc. ("CareView" or the "Company") (OTCQB: CRVW), an information technology provider to the healthcare industry, announced today that it recently executed a Master Agreement with a major multi-facility hospital group to carry its CareView System® suite of products and services. This hospital group, whose name cannot be released due to a non-disclosure agreement, operates over 70 hospitals with over 20,000 licensed beds. CareView will receive installation agreements from facilities within the hospital group and will begin installing its products and services as soon as practicable thereafter.
Steven Johnson, CareView's Chief Executive Officer, stated, "For healthcare facilities looking for an effective, affordable and innovative way to improve performance throughout their facility, our products are the answer. CareView-driven facilities have shown documented success in reducing patient falls and sitter costs, improving overall patient satisfaction, streamlining and documenting patient education at the bedside, and improving patient flow and overcrowding." Mr. Johnson continued, "The recent increase in completed sales appears to be a validation that our products are becoming an accepted part of healthcare quality, safety and cost savings."
Sandra McRee, CareView's Chief Operating Officer, stated, "The use of our evolving products and on-demand services greatly increases the access to quality medical care and education for patients. We are excited to be able to spotlight the excellent results obtained by hospitals using our products that have seen up to a 50% reduction in patient falls and sitter costs. These and other successes protect a facilities' reimbursement from loss due to Never Events and poor patient satisfaction."
