CareView becomes Dish Network's private cable operator


MUMBAI: CareView Communications, Inc., an information technology provider to the healthcare industry, executed an agreement with Dish Network, LLC, a Colorado company, to become a Private Cable Operator (PCO). This agreement will enable CareView to provide television network services via Dish Network as part of its full suite of products and services offered through its CareView System.

?Our intention is to include television services via Dish Network to residents in skilled nursing and assisted living centers as a part of our bundled service offering which will provide greater flexibility for the facility and more viewing options for their patients?

As a PCO, CareView will have greater flexibility and less overhead than cable operators or public utility companies and can pass savings along to its customers. This bulk programming will provide a low cost viewing package that can be delivered to each room within assisted living centers, nursing homes and hospitals.

"Our intention is to include television services via Dish Network to residents in skilled nursing and assisted living centers as a part of our bundled service offering which will provide greater flexibility for the facility and more viewing options for their patients," stated CareView CEO Steven Johnson. "This represents a continuation of our present bundled services philosophy. It offers an additional way for facilities to cut costs and add additional revenue."

CareView installs its equipment in healthcare facilities at no charge, thereafter generating revenue from subscriptions to its suite of products and services that are priced as a bundled service. As CareView's tiered pricing structure is based on the volume commitment by each customer, it intends to include television services via Dish Network to skilled nursing and assisted living centers as part of the bundled service offering to allow customers access to the full suite of CareView services.

The Company's CareView System provides a full complement of clinical and patient monitoring services for a variety of healthcare facilities. It also provides an entertainment suite of services to increase patient satisfaction scores and enhance the overall image of the facility including first-run, on-demand movies, Internet access and the ability to visit with family and friends through video conferencing.

CareView's mission is to be the leading provider of products and on-demand application services for the healthcare industry by specializing in bedside video monitoring, archiving and patient care documentation systems and patient entertainment services. Through the use of telecommunications technology and the Internet, our products and on-demand services will greatly increase the access to quality medical care and education for both consumers and healthcare professionals.
