TeleHealth Services, a leading provider of integrated communications solutions for the healthcare market, has acquired substantially all Instant HealthLine(R) assets of Pathware, Inc. (formerly SVI Healthcare, Inc.) and has assumed responsibility for servicing and supporting Pathware’s Instant HealthLine(R) (IHL) customers as of August 11, 2008. Pathware/SVI provided the IHL interactive on-demand video systems that deliver education, entertainment and other patient-oriented information to bedside televisions and computers in hospitals. TeleHealth will continue to service the customers through its industry-leading TIGR education-on-demand support personnel. “We approached SVI following their decision in June to exit the business,” said George Fleming, President and CEO of TeleHealth Services. “We welcome all Pathware/SVI customers to the TeleHealth family and are excited to provide service and support to those customers in carrying out their mission of providing patient education and entertainment to their patients, family and staff. By providing ongoing support to IHL’s interactive patient education systems, the hospitals can keep moving forward with their facility’s quality initiatives and increasing patient satisfaction.” The leading provider of healthcare interactive education and entertainment on-demand systems in the United States with an installed base of more than 250 TIGR customers, TeleHealth Services has the skills, experience, personnel and resources to support the IHL customer base. With the addition of Pathware/SVI’s approximately 150 customers, TeleHealth Services will service and support more than 400 patient interactive education systems in U.S. hospitals.
