LEWISVILLE, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CareView Communications, Inc. (“CareView” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: CRVW), an information technology provider to the healthcare industry, has developed an integration with Get Well, a global leader in digital patient engagement, that allows care teams to communicate with patients using the interactive TV platform already present in the patient rooms.
This integration between CareView and Get Well, which provides interactive technology solutions to improve patient engagement, is essential to creating a patient-centric, interconnected virtual care system. A centralized virtual care command center enabled by a fully integrated CareView System® serves as the epicenter of a hub and spoke telecare model across a system of hospitals. This virtual care system creates a scalable, flexible workforce that keeps patients engaged and their needs met, while providing relief to nurses by leveraging virtual staff to instantly tend to patients’ needs and perform administrative tasks that do not require licensure.
With the CareView-Get Well integration, providers can easily leverage in-room patient engagement solutions to video conference into patient rooms by accessing the CareView portal directly within the EHR workflow. This integral component also lays the foundation for virtual nursing, hybrid care, and Telemedicine to alleviate staff workloads and provide greater access to caregivers.
