LEWISVILLE, Texas--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--CareView Communications, Inc. ("CareView" or the "Company") (OTCQB: CRVW), an information technology provider to the healthcare industry, today announced the execution of a products and services agreement with the Central Arkansas Veterans Healthcare System for installation of its CareView System® in its primary hospital, John L. McClellan Memorial Veterans Hospital in Little Rock. CareView has already begun installation of its video monitoring, archival and patient care documentation systems and patient entertainment systems in 100 beds.
The installation at John L. McClellan Memorial Veterans Hospital is pursuant to the Company's approval from the U.S. General Services Administration ("GSA") under which CareView's products and services are included on its Multiple Award Schedule program. The approval allows the Company to sell the CareView System at a negotiated rate to the approximate 169 VA facilities with over 39,000 licensed beds and the approximate 42 DOD hospitals with over 2,600 licensed beds. The GSA's Multiple Award Schedule is one of the most widely accepted government contract vehicles available to agency procurement officers. GSA's application process requires potential vendors to be recognized as highly credible and well established. As a GSA contract holder, CareView's products and services are listed and available on the GSA Schedule Contract #GS-07F-020AA.
Steven Johnson, CareView's President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are excited to be installing the CareView System at this important VA hospital. We are hopeful that once installation and training is complete, the other VA hospitals will also want to participate. Our products and services represent an enormous opportunity to improve the health and safety of our Nation’s veterans."
