AirStrip is a unique and propriety native mobile application that allows clinicians to see clinical data on mobile devices and the web. With one-touch access, clinicians can access cardiac rhythm strips and 12-lead ECGs, view multiple patients simultaneously, receive STEMI notifications, communicate with the care team, and much more. The combination of GE HealthCare and AirStrip provides a tightly integrated toolset under one solution set. It brings together the wide range of GE HealthCare’s innovative and accurate ECG, cardiac output, and patient monitoring products with AirStrip’s advanced data visualization and monitoring capabilities - all available to clinical care teams on mobile devices and the web. Additionally, healthcare systems can benefit from access to GE HealthCare’s Outcomes Delivery Team, who provide program management support through clinical and technical implementation with ongoing customer success metrics. Healthcare systems can work with the Outcomes Delivery Team during the purchasing process to establish performance benchmarks and evaluate results.
Pairing GE HealthCare’s technology and AirStrip allows remote collaboration to be at the forefront, enabling clinicians to view patient data from a distance and view multiple patients on one screen by level of priority. With a focus on streamlining and optimizing in-patient care solutions, this collaboration is designed to provide a combined offering that helps increase clinical staff productivity, collaboration, and communication.
“We are thrilled to advance our collaboration with GE HealthCare by committing to a much deeper integration between their exceptional patient monitoring and our mobile and web clinical surveillance,” said Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong, AirStrip CEO. “Leveraging GE HealthCare’s platform, we will be able to offer a joint solution that empowers clinical teams to receive clinical and vital signs information remotely in near real time and effectively deal with constraints on clinical resources while enhancing clinicians’ user experiences.”
Creative solutions, such as pairing AirStrip’s Cardiology and Patient Monitoring solutions with GE HealthCare’s patient monitoring technology, have the potential to help alleviate the pressure of staffing shortages and clinical burnout. GE HealthCare’s Reimagining Better Health Study surveyed 2,000 clinicians across eight countries, among thousands of other participants. The study found 61% of clinicians believe technology can support clinical decision making, 54% of clinicians agree that technology enables faster health interventions and 55% of clinicians believe technology helps to improve operational efficiency.
“We are proud to be the exclusive distributor of AirStrip’s innovative cardiac and monitoring technology,” said Catherine Estrampes, President and CEO, U.S. and Canada, GE HealthCare. “Our expanded collaboration underscores our commitment to listen closely to the needs of our clinicians and deliver world-class solutions. As an independent company broadening our relationship with AirStrip, there is unlimited opportunity to advance the future of real-time and remote patient monitoring. Our unified solution is less manual, enabling clinicians to manage workloads more efficiently, easing the way to improved patient care. This is critically important in the current environment of clinician shortages and burnout.”
The joint commercialization of GE HealthCare and AirStrip’s Cardiology and Patient Monitoring solutions are currently available in the U.S.
