LEWISVILLE, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CareView Communications, Inc. ("CareView" or the "Company") (OTCQB: CRVW), an information technology provider to the healthcare industry, today announced a strategic partnership with Voyce, a leading provider in real-time language interpreter services in telehealth and clinical support solutions. Through this partnership, CareView will integrate CareView’s Patient Safety System® with Voyce’s remote, on-demand video capabilities to enable face-to-face interaction with a medically trained language interpreter.
“Clear communication is critical in healthcare, and convenient access to medical interpreters can help save lives,” said Steve Johnson, CareView’s CEO. “When used with our Patient Safety System, Voyce’s technology will improve communication and understanding between patients and medical staff, which can lead to better medical outcomes.”
Voyce provides convenient access to on-demand video remote interpreters. Live interpreters can be requested when and where they are needed most. “The Voyce app is designed to help anyone struggling to communicate effectively due to a language barrier,” said Andrew Royce, Chief Executive Officer of Voyce. “With one in five Americans speaking a language other than English at home, the need for reliable, accessible interpretation is growing, especially in the healthcare and telemedicine arena. We look forward to working with CareView to provide these critical services for medical staff and patients.”
The CareView Patient Safety System®, which includes SitterView, allows hospitals to reduce sitter costs and patient falls through predictive technology. CareView's telemedicine technology product, TeleMedView, builds on CareView’s two-way audio and video functionality, allowing staff to communicate with patients remotely. The integration of Voyce with this system will now offer the expanded benefit of staff having the ability to access a live interpreter if they don’t speak the same primary language as the patient.
