CardioNet, AirStrip Partner to Expand Mobile Patient Monitoring

Integrated mobility solution enables health systems to improve delivery of cardiac care

CardioNet AirStrip Mobility Solution Patient/Remote Monitoring ECG Software

February 18, 2013 — As health systems are under increasing pressure to share data across systems to improve and expand their networks of care, CardioNet Inc. and AirStrip have entered into a partnership agreement to develop and co-market an integrated solution for mobile patient monitoring.

The AirStrip mobility solution will deliver live patient data from CardioNet’s Mobile Cardiac Outpatient Telemetry (MCOT) directly to clinicians’ mobile devices, including tablets and phones. This integrated solution will enable health systems to combine critical cardiac data with electronic medical records (EMR) and device information to improve patient monitoring and clinician decision-making at the point of care.

“This partnership is the foundation for a powerful end-to-end cardiac care package that promises to have a game-changing impact on 30-day readmissions for heart failure,” said Alan Portela, AirStrip CEO. “Our pioneering mobility solution delivers critical patient data to physicians anywhere across the care continuum to encourage better decision-making and improve both the timeliness and quality of care. This integration with CardioNet’s platform enables health systems to empower clinicians with the information they need to achieve key quality metrics in cardiology — one of the most resource and time-intensive practice areas within healthcare.”

While details of the partnership agreement were not disclosed, it is exclusive to select markets. The two companies expect to deliver a market-ready solution by mid-year.

Joseph H. Capper, CardioNet’s president and CEO, commented: “This collaboration is one of the most exciting initiatives CardioNet has embarked on to date. As the leader in the mobile cardiac telemetry market, we are always looking for avenues to expand the utilization of our data. The AirStrip solution is the leading FDA-cleared technology for the transmission of virtual, live ECG waveforms to a healthcare provider’s mobile device. This solution is rapidly transforming the way clinical data is delivered and integrated in a point-of-care setting. Incorporating the timely, accurate information derived from MCOT into AirStrip’s state-of-the-art mobile system will undoubtedly improve the physician’s ability to deliver the proper treatment, the first time.”
