AirStrip and Microsoft team up to offer first and only Windows 8.1 mobile device cardiac care solution
Mobile health care leader AirStrip has announced the launch of AirStripOne Cardiology, the first and only mobile cardiac care solution to operate on all Windows 8.1 devices, including Microsoft Surface tablets. The announcement was made at the start of this week’s Health 2.0 Fall Conference during a presentation by AirStrip CEO, Alan Portela. AirSTrip ONE Cardiology is the company’s first release for Windows 8.1.
Palomar Health, the largest public healthcare district in California and the most comprehensive health care delivery system in northern San Diego County, will act as the pilot site for AirStrip One Cardiology for Windows. AirStrip ONE Cardiology supports expedited cardiac care delivery with a number of leader features including:
- Current and historical ECGs with digital visual enhancement
- The ability to edit and confirm findings
- Push notification on critical values including STEMI and critical dysrhythmias
- The ability to send ECGs and labs via secure link sharing
- Smart ECG routing that supports timely follow-ups and improved population health management goals
- Access to EMR, monitoring and other patient data
For clinicians who are increasingly looking for devices that meet both their own needs for usability, and also meet the connectivity, manageability, privacy and security requirements of enterprise healthcare IT environments, this is welcome news. It means that clinicians who select Microsoft Surface tablets or other tablets using the Windows 8.1 operating system will increasingly find the critical applications and reference materials they need for clinical practice.
From early discussions and initial planning that started in July of this year to the release of the AirStrip ONE Cardiology solution this week, AirStrip demonstrates the power and ease of developing on the Windows 8.1 operating system platform. That is good news for partners around the globe who want to develop clinical solutions for devices running the Windows 8.1 operating system.
The release of AirStrip One Cardiology is pending FDA regulatory clearance. Announcements about other AirStrip mobile clinical solutions for Windows 8.1 will be coming in the near future.
