Sprint Partnership Brings Medical Apps to 4G Network

Posted by at 9:24 pm on October 19, 2010

Mobile medical software development company AirStrip Technologies is collaborating with Sprint to deliver robust and cost-effective technological benefits for medical professionals.

AirStrip Technologies has developed one-of-a-kind remote patient monitoring applications that deliver real-time vital waveform and other critical patient data directly from hospital monitoring systems to mobile devices to enable healthcare providers to continually monitor vital signs from virtually wherever they are. AirStrip applications now are available on Sprint smartphones, like the HTC EVO 4G and soon the Samsung Epic 4G. The applications are HIPAA compliant and FDA cleared.

The companies are collaborating for a cost-effective, bundled offer that includes Sprint’s clinical grade in-building coverage enhancement and AirStrip services for hospitals that agree to expand or extend an enterprise commitment to the Sprint network for more of their employees.

“We want every physician and patient in the United States to have immediate access to the innovative safety benefits offered by AirStrip’s revolutionary technology,” said Dr. Cameron Powell, President and Chief Medical Officer, AirStrip. “We also understand the financial challenges many hospitals face. This partnership enables hospitals to accelerate their adoption of AirStrip in a cost-effective manner, while also ensuring the robust in-building coverage to meet the growing data mobility demands of hospital staff and medical practitioners.”

In the past, providing physicians with mobile access to medical information has created concerns that the data being viewed on laptops or hand-held devices could be easily copied, putting security and patient confidentiality at risk. With AirStrip, the data is not stored on the device; it remains “in the cloud.” So if an HTC EVO 4G or hand-held device is lost or stolen, the patient records and data remain safe.

Dr. Powell said Sprint’s 4G network will also allow AirStrip to add features to its remote patient monitoring solutions.

“With this collaboration, our groundbreaking AirStrip solutions can now offer more features that medical professionals have been asking for,” Dr. Powell noted. “The speed of an enterprise-wide hospital rollout has sometimes been limited to a certain extent to factors beyond our control, including fiscal concerns, along with network speeds and reliability. This partnership opens up a world of new possibilities.”
