LEWISVILLE, Texas–CareView Communications, Inc. (“CareView” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: CRVW), an information technology provider to the healthcare industry, today announced the expansion of Amarillo VA Health Care System’s Community Living Center, Amarillo, Texas, under its partnership with Decisive Point Consulting Group. Decisive Point Consulting Group contracts directly with VA hospitals to use a variety of CareView products to enhance the services being provided to veterans.
The CareView Patient Safety System® utilizes video cameras in the patient’s room combined with sophisticated virtual motion detection software to indicate the likelihood of a patient fall before it happens. This agreement expands the use of CareView to the inpatient Medical/Surgical unit. The Community Living Center has greatly reduced the number of falls over the last year and expects to reduce falls even more by expanding its centralized monitoring to the inpatient acute care unit.
CareView offers the industry’s only virtual sitter solution with no audible alarms inside patient areas, making it the perfect solution for VA Community Living Centers. Additionally, as patient privacy is of utmost importance, the System features a privacy option, which can be utilized when needed, ensuring enhanced safety, security, and peace of mind for loved ones.
