Déjà vu all over again? Alere Health, formerly known as Inverness Medical Innovations inked a distribution deal with a wireless remote fetal monitoring company. In March Alere signed on to promote UK-based Monica Healthcare's wireless fetal monitoring system. This week, it's AirStripOB.
AirStrip Technologies, which is known for having one of the very first FDA approved iPhone apps (AirStripOB), has inked a deal with Alere that sees Alere leveraging its marketing and distribution channels to promote AirStripOB to its healthcare provider client base.
AirStrip OB captures vital patient waveform data, including fetal heart tracing and maternal contraction patterns, in "virtual real time" and sends it to the physician's mobile device.
"AirStrip Technologies is moving into the home health arena to monitor multiple clinical scenarios," AirStrip Technologies Chief Sales Officer Bruce Brandes stated. "The AirStrip-Alere agreement delivers a partnership to the market that combines great technology with great experience, coupled with Alere's compelling history of improving outcomes for pregnant women and their children."
AirStrip also recently received FDA clearance for another wireless remote monitoring service: AirStrip RPM, which includes critical care and cardiac monitoring.
