RegionalCare to deploy AirStrip m-health technology

RegionalCare Hospital Partners has revealed it will use technology from AirStrip as its standard for clinical mobility solutions at its eight hospitals across the US.

RegionalCare (Brentwood, TN, USA) – which manages a privately owned network of community hospitals – says it will introduce mobile healthcare applications from AirStrip (San Antonio, TX, USA) as it looks to drive “clinical transformation”.

“We focus on implementing strategies that position each hospital to be a leader in its community,” said RegionalCare chief information officer Mark Gilliam. “This investment in AirStrip will provide our physicians with the mobile technology solutions to deliver state-of-the-art care, while moving the RegionalCare system toward standardization in both infrastructure and operations.”

AirStrip – which has received funding from Sequoia Capital and Qualcomm – says its mobility solution provides access to “critical patient data across the care continuum” and will initially provide a number of service line solutions as what it calls a first step towards rolling out a fully interoperable and enterprise-wide clinical mobility solution.

“AirStrip is the ideal choice to help RegionalCare overcome the barriers created by geography and disparate monitoring systems,” said Alan Portela, AirStrip’s chief executive. “By leveraging mobility to provide clinicians with a unified and complete picture of patient information, the partnership can lead to measurable improvements in the assessment, monitoring and direct care of patients.”

RegionalCare believes the use of AirStrip services will give its physicians and employees the resources and tools they need to improve patient care.

Besides, RegionalCare, AirStrip also provides services to HCA, Texas Health Resources (THR), Vanguard Health Systems (a part of Tenet Healthcare Corporation), Dignity Health and Ardent Health Services.
