LEWISVILLE, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CareView Communications, Inc. ("CareView" or the "Company") (OTCQB:CRVW), an information technology provider to the healthcare industry, executed an agreement with Dish Network, LLC, a Colorado company, (NASDAQ:DISH), 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®.
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 Steven Johnson, Chief Executive Officer and President of CareView Communications. "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.
