AirStrip: Compacting Healthcare Data Onto a Single Platform
The world of healthcare is undergoing a digital revolution – a shift to cloud based platforms and tools that make more data available than ever. But while this era of “big data” gives healthcare organizations unprecedented access to an array of information affecting patient care, it also creates new challenges for making that data available to providers working with patients across the entire spectrum of care.
AirStrip ONE, a new digital platform from the health technology innovator AirStrip Technologies, can make data from multiple sources and different operating systems instantly available to everyone involved in a patient’s care throughout the entire healthcare journey. AirStrip’s data management solution aggregates and consolidates essential health information in a single platform, for better and more efficient patient care.
The Digital Transformation In Healthcare and Life Sciences
The digital transformation in healthcare and the life sciences is driven by the Internet of Things (IoT) – a new, global digital ecosystem in which billions of devices are in constant communication, sharing data, making decisions and taking actions independent of human intervention.
Powered by a combination of “smart” devices, cloud-based data management and artificial intelligences, IoT includes several industry-specific subsets, including the Internet of Medical Things – a digital ecosystem that connects medical devices, healthcare data, and dedicated software systems. In this interconnected world, providers have access to massive amounts of data from sources such as wearable medical devices, patient self-reporting, imaging and multiple clinic or hospital visits.
This flood of data offers new opportunities for delivering personalized, innovative patient care. But healthcare providers may struggle to make the best use of it in daily operations. With AirStrip ONE, patient information from multiple sources can be displayed instantly, from anywhere, so that providers can find essential information at every point of contact with a patient.
AirStrip ONE: Essential Data, Available Anywhere
AirStrip’s vision is to transform and improve healthcare delivery with technology that provides the tools clinicians need to provide the best services across the continuum of care. That vision lies behind the development of AirStrip ONE, an innovative, interoperable digital platform that makes patient data such as clinical notes, lab results, images and scans available anywhere, anytime, from a single, user-friendly interface.
AirStrip ONE provides clinical data from many platforms and applications on a single, tile based home screen. That makes it possible for everyone involved in a patient’s care to access essential data from mobile devices, laptops or desktop computers at any time. AirStrip ONE integrates with existing technologies, without the need for investing in new hardware or additional IT staff to manage the platform. AirStrip ONE is installed by certified technicians from AirStrip Technologies, and the company provides price quotes upon request.
AirStrip ONE in Clinical Care
Internal care coordination is one of the leading patient safety concerns across healthcare organizations, particularly in acute care settings where a rapid response can save lives. From cardiac care to obstetrics, AirStrip ONE’s single platform can make lab notes, test results and other data available to clinical care staff at any location, and spare patients from repeated tests and procedures.
AirStrip ONE for ECG Data Management
Heart disease is a leading cause of death in the United States, and prompt intervention is essential during a heart attack to save heart muscle and restore blood flow. Electrocardiogram, or ECG testing and other imaging and monitoring processes are used to diagnose and assess heart conditions and damage, but these kinds of telemetry often take place in multiple settings, performed by different teams.
ECG strips, or cardiac rhythm strips, capture reference points of a patient’s progress during testing. But those strips are typically generated as paper strips that must then be copied, labeled and scanned into existing applications – a wasteful, costly process that increases the likelihood of error and slows the availability of test results. But AirStrip ONE for Patient Monitoring features a paperless process for capturing these strips and securely transmitting them to relevant members of the healthcare team.
AirStrip ONE’s dashboard includes a cardiology module that provides a real-time display of a variety of information related to ECG results and other types of cardiac monitoring, including patient identification, test dates, times and results, and ECG strips.
AirStrip ONE for Obstetrics
Continuous electronic fetal waveform monitoring is an essential tool for the health of both the mother and baby during labor and birth. Like ECG strips, EFM strips are typically printed and then visually assessed by the care team to guide decision-making. But not all care team members may be on-site to review the data and respond instantly to concerns. AirStrip ONE’s module for Obstetrics allows all members of the care team to review waveforms, alarms and other patient data at anytime, from anywhere, document actions taken and stay connected with patients and their families from any location.
Alternatives to AirStrip ONE
AirStrip’s interoperable platform, with its multiple modules and ability to access data from a variety of systems and applications, is an innovative tool that supports better and more efficient patient care. But a number of other technology innovators offer similar tools.
Redox aims to transform legacy infrastructures for integration with today’s digital health technologies. Its platform includes integrations for telehealth, remote patient monitoring, labs, medical devices and more, all in a single platform that can be used by anyone, no technical or coding skills required.
The Qvera Interface Engine is designed to work with the healthcare cloud to connect a variety of commonly used data management platforms across networks, organizations and departments.
Bridge Connector offers interoperability solutions for healthcare with its Destinations and CareServiceConnect products. Its integration apps work with existing systems and platforms to create connections for sharing data across the entire spectrum of healthcare services.
In 2020, the amount of healthcare data generated worldwide doubles every 73 days, and the tools of the Internet of Medical Things allow healthcare entities to access and manage it efficiently. With a single platform, multiple modules and a user-friendly interface, AirStrip ONE helps healthcare organizations of all kinds to access and share crucial patient data anytime, anywhere, for better, more efficient care.
