AirStrip Launches AirStrip ONE: Industry’s First Complete Enterprise-Wide Mobile Interoperability Solution

Health systems today are under more pressure than ever to improve clinical and business outcomes and increase market share, often through physician group and facility acquisitions. But, integrating and delivering relevant clinical data across multiple geographies and care settings has remained a cumbersome and costly obstacle.

Launched today, AirStrip ONE™ will initially be implemented at Dignity Health as the first enterprise-wide, data- and vendor-agnostic mobility solution to securely deliver patient data from medical devices, electronic medical records (EMRs) and patient monitors to clinicians anywhere across the care continuum. The long-awaited key to mobile healthcare interoperability, AirStrip ONE enables more timely and collaborative clinical decision-making, and allows health systems to better track critical quality metrics, empower a mobile workforce, expand their networks, and ultimately achieve true clinical transformation.

“Most health systems today are working with a dizzying array of different EMRs, medical devices and other systems, all from different vendors, and are unable to really unlock the true value of these investments. At the same time, the days of physicians – particularly today’s overstretched specialists – practicing in one facility are numbered, as they are increasingly required to deliver care in multiple or remote locations,” said Alan Portela, AirStrip CEO. “As demonstrated through the commitment from Dignity Health, AirStrip ONE leverages the power of mobility to deliver the industry’s first enterprise-wide, vendor-agnostic mobile interoperability solution.”

AirStrip ONE Drives Mobile Interoperability Strategy at Dignity Health

AirStrip ONE will first be deployed at Dignity Health, a San Francisco-based health system with more than 300 care sites in 17 states, working together to co-develop AirStrip ONE uses in the primary care setting. The first implementations will be at Chandler Regional Medical Center (Chandler, Ariz.) and Mercy Gilbert Medical Center (Gilbert, Ariz.) in support of the recently-announced Medicare Accountable Care Organization (ACO), the Arizona Care Network. Extending the clinical and platform components of AirStrip ONE, Dignity Health and AirStrip will next mobilize St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix, Ariz., including a critical integration with EMR data from Dignity Health’s house-wide Cerner system and Allscripts ambulatory system.

“We work with a variety of different physicians to coordinate care, each using different systems and requiring separate sign-ons,” said Dr. Shez Partovi, chief medical information officer, Dignity Health’s Arizona Service Area. “AirStrip ONE will help us deliver more coordinated care by allowing us to look at all the data in one place, no matter where our physicians are located.”

By enabling their physicians to become truly mobile, AirStrip ONE will allow Dignity Health to extend its delivery of specialty care and areas of expertise across its facilities, while maintaining contact with their patient data in near-real-time. AirStrip will also provide ongoing support of Dignity Health’s ACO strategy, including its Arizona-based ACO with Vanguard Health, announced in July 2012.

AirStrip ONE: Breaking Down Barriers to Clinical Transformation

AirStrip ONE provides the architecture, platform and user experience that delivers on the promises of mobility. It allows for scalable clinical solutions that reflect the working styles and workflows of busy clinicians, while enabling teams to achieve improvements in key metrics such as reduced readmissions. AirStrip ONE also reduces the burden on providers’ IT organizations, as the solution is managed by AirStrip’s Transformation Services team.

The complete AirStrip enterprise mobility solution includes:

  • A set of Clinical Mobility Solutions
    • AirStrip ONE OB, for labor and delivery;
    • AirStrip ONE Cardiology, to aid decision-making from pre-hospital/EMS through Emergency Services, inpatient care, critical care and discharge. Recently extended through a partnership with CardioNet, AirStrip ONE Cardiology is central to providing care across the entire cardiac care continuum;
    • AirStrip ONE EMR, providing connectivity to patient health data across a wide variety of EMR systems; and,
    • AirStrip ONE Patient Monitoring, enabling access to data from any monitored location across a wide variety of medical devices
  • The AirStrip ONE Core Mobility Platform, which provides interoperability and other services to clinical applications, and hides the complexity of data access and transport from end-users:
    • Medical Device Connectivity;
    • EMR/EHR Adapters;
    • Single Sign On (SSO);
    • Context Management;
    • Strong, HIPAA-compliant security; and,
    • Other platform services required for specific applications.
  • AirStrip Accelerator Services, which ensure rapid deployment, long-term clinician acceptance and health systems’ achievement of goals:
    • Pre-sale Assessment and Baselining;
    • Comprehensive Project Management and Support;
    • Reporting and Analytics; and,
    • Clinical Transformation Consulting.

Other AirStrip ONE components, including support for medical imaging, HIE connectivity, secure messaging and video conferencing, will be available later this year.

AirStrip will be demonstrating AirStrip ONE and its component clinical solutions at HIMSS13 in New Orleans, March 3-7, in booth #1721.

Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible. Many can only imagine the most advanced telematics platform ever deployed, supporting millions of customers, producing tens of thousands events or GBs per trip, and hundreds of TBs per month. With the ability to support a billion sensor events per second, over 30PB of warm data for analytics, and hundreds of PBs for an data analytics archive, in his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Kaskade, Vice President and General Manager, Big Data & Ana...
In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
