  CareView Communications, Inc. Announces Execution of Pilot Agreements with
  Two Universal Health Services, Inc. Hospitals

Business Wire

LEWISVILLE, Texas -- January 14, 2013

CareView Communications, Inc. ("CareView" or the "Company") (OTCQB: CRVW), an
information technology provider to the healthcare industry, announced today
the execution of pilot agreements with Spring Valley Hospital Medical Center
("Spring Valley Hospital"), a 231-bed hospital, and Desert Springs Hospital
Medical Center ("Desert Springs Hospital"), a 293-bed hospital, which comprise
two of five Las Vegas hospitals owned by Universal Health Services, Inc.
("UHS").

The pilot agreements are for a three-month period with an extension clause for
an additional thirty day period. Under the pilot agreements with these UHS
hospitals, CareView agrees to install its CareView System^® products and
services including the SecureView^®, PhysicianView®, NurseView^®,
SitterView^™, GuestView^™, BedView^™, Virtual Bed Rails^®, and Virtual Chair
Rails^™ modules and the Fall Management Program (as described below). Both
hospitals agree to specifically measure (i) the number of patient falls
comparing those beds using the CareView System products and services and those
not, (ii) the reduction in sitter costs and (iii) the impact on patient
satisfaction.

"As with our other successful pilot programs, we are confident that the pilots
with Spring Valley Hospital and Desert Springs Hospital will also prove
successful and will lead to a significant deployment as early as the second
quarter of 2013. We know that the UHS hospital group takes great pride in the
superior care given to their patients and we look forward to playing a vital
role in their continued quest for excellence. Our CareView System products and
services will allow UHS hospitals to manage their patients and hospital beds
more effectively while promoting their commitment to patient safety and
satisfaction," stated Samuel A. Greco, CareView’s Chief Executive Officer.

CareView System Modules

SecureView monitors and records bedside activity in the patient’s room. All
privacy and access options are determined and configured by the hospital.

PhysicianView enables the admitting physicians and non-physician staff members
to view their patients from any personal computer. All privacy and access
options are determined by the hospital.

NurseView allows authorized users to view monitored rooms from the nursing
station or mobile device. All privacy and access options are determined and
configured by the hospital.

SitterView allows a primary and secondary sitter to monitor multiple patients
using a touch screen mobile device.

GuestView offers a suite of services including access to movies and the
Internet and virtual visits from family and friends.

BedView provides a real-time digitized overview, both on stationary and mobile
monitors, of the status of all hospital beds to provide better patient
placement and prevent overcrowding. Patient flow is important to the
efficiency of any hospital from quickly admitting a patient in the correct bed
to a quicker patient discharge and bed turnover.

Virtual Bed Rails allow the hospital to activate a safety module that will
notify the nursing station when a patient exits a defined area in the patient
bed.

Virtual Chair Rails allow the hospital to activate a safety module that will
notify the nursing station when a patient exits a defined area in the patient
room chair.

Fall Management Program allows the hospital to separately file, identify and
research the activity of patients for whom Virtual Bed Rails were engaged.
