HEALTH TECHNOLOGY, FUTURE OF HEALTHCARE
CareView Communications | March 06, 2023
CareView Communications, Inc., an IT company in the healthcare field, recently announced that it has built an integration with SONIFI Health that allows care teams to talk to patients through the interactive TV platforms that are already present in patient rooms.
To create a patient-centric, networked virtual care system, CareView is integrating with SONIFI Health, which provides interactive technology to promote patient involvement. A hub-and-spoke telecare model spanning a system of hospitals is centered on a fully-integrated CareView Patient Monitoring System®-enabled virtual care command center. This virtual care system creates a scalable, flexible workforce that keeps patients interested and meets their needs. It also gives nurses a break by using virtual staff to take care of patients' needs immediately and do administrative work that doesn't require a license.
Using the CareView-SONIFI Health integration, doctors may make video calls to patients' homes without leaving the EHR interface. This crucial component also supports virtual nursing, hybrid care, and telemedicine to reduce staff burdens and increase caregiver access.
CareView Chief Operating Officer Sandra McRee stated, "Hospitals are facing unprecedented labor challenges and margin pressures." She added, "Integrating our interactive platform with healthcare technologies like SONIFI Health is key to creating a scalable and effective solution for virtual nursing to reduce labor costs and keep nurses working at the top of their license."

Orion Health, a global leader in population health software, is strengthening its position in North America with new technology and the appointment of James Rice as Executive Vice President for North America.
With operations in 12 U.S States and seven Canadian Provinces, the company has long been at the forefront of transformational Digital Health in North America. Orion Health is continuing on this path with the launch of the Amadeus Unified Healthcare Platform leading away from traditional broken healthcare systems, by creating patient-first digital health solutions.
Alongside his new position, Rice will continue in his strategic role on the Orion Health global Executive Leadership Team with responsibility for the company's sales, business growth and marketing strategy. His new role will see Orion Health having a global executive on the ground in North America and demonstrates the company's confidence and commitment to this significant market.
Brad Porter, Orion Health Global Chief Executive says the North American health sector is in desperate need for innovative technology to reduce the strain brought on by the pandemic and the ever-increasing shortage of medical professionals.
"To overcome the challenges facing the sector today, we need to reimagine how IT can improve healthcare by giving more time back to medical professionals and making health systems easier for users to navigate. We're already seeing how Digital Front Door technology is achieving this in parts of Canada, and we look forward to introducing these solutions across more regions in North America," says Porter.
Orion Health has been operating in North America for more than 25 years. In addition to its DFD, Orion Health has developed over 30 state or province-wide Digital Care Records (DCR) or health information exchanges across the US and Canada, allowing health information to flow seamlessly to and from authorized organizations and individuals across the state.
Amadeus Unified Healthcare Platform
In 2023 Orion Health is reinventing its Amadeus Unified Healthcare Platform, which is made up of its Digital Care Record (DCR), Digital Front Door (DFD), and its new Health Intelligence Platform (HIP).
"HIP is an exciting new health-centric solution that helps customers get the most out of their data. As a core component of the Amadeus Unified Healthcare Platform, HIP is a scalable, modular data solution that compliments the full range of products in the Amadeus suite.
"James will lead the implementation of Orion Health's Amadeus Unified Healthcare Platform strategy across North America, and thus will play an instrumental role in improving health outcomes for the region," says Porter.
In his new role, Rice is leading the North American arm of Orion Health as well as the Middle East. He is responsible for creating and leading revenue streams focused on these markets.
With more than 25 years of experience, five of which at Orion Health, James's experience makes him the perfect candidate to lead the team working to deliver the right care, to the right people, at the right time.
"The North American market is hugely important to Orion Health. I'm looking forward to engaging with existing and prospective customers, showing them how our transformational new technology will change the game for healthcare," says Rice.
