Mobile health care provider AirStrip recently announced a strategic partnership with Samsung that will include the development and optimization of AirStrip ONE on Samsung tablets with Android and Windows 8.1 operating systems, as well as convertible and All-in-One desktop and laptop PCs with touch screens.
“Samsung’s innovative and wide-ranging product portfolio embraces a range of form factors and supports rapid, secure access to clinical information of all types,” AirStrip CEO Alan Portela says. “Samsung recognizes the need to create powerful technology that supports health care mobility in ways that can ultimately transform patient care, regardless of the device that clinicians are using.”
AirStrip ONE, a complete enterprisewide mobile interoperability solution, was unveiled earlier this year, with Dignity Health as its first implementation. AirStrip has also formed an innovation lab partnership with Palomar Health to develop expanded AirStrip ONE functionality. AirStrip ONE presents clinicians with medical device and patient monitoring data, along with historical and EMR data, for faster and more informed decision-making. Samsung will also support the development of a host of innovative AirStrip ONE features to be optimized on Samsung devices.
Portela notes that the Samsung mobility platforms offer both security and interoperability to integrate seamlessly into provider workflows. Samsung provides an Enterprise SDK so that a growing number of Samsung Enterprise solutions include the necessary security and feature enhancements suitable for health care use, a commitment well-suited to AirStrip’s patent-protected and FDA-cleared health care mobility solutions. AirStrip is the first mHealth solution for medical device mobility certified by the United States Air Force to comply with the Department of Defense Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process security requirements.
