We last reported on Airstrip Technologies on September 29th when Charlotte, North Carolina-based Premier healthcare alliance inked a deal with the mobile application developer for AirStrip OB, which provides obstetricians and nurses with real-time, remote access to fetal and maternal waveform data, including fetal heart rate and maternal contractions. Premier began offering the application to its 2,200 hospital members about a month ago.
AirStrip OB works with the BlackBerry and iPhone platforms as well as a number of Windows Mobile phones and delivers vital patient waveform data — including fetal heartbeat and maternal contraction patterns — in virtual real-time directly from the hospital labor and delivery unit to a doctor's mobile wireless device. The mobile solution’s reputation grew after it was featured during a demonstration at an iPhone developer conference earlier this year — the AirStrip OB application only received FDA clearance this past April.
AirStrip’s existing customers include Cleveland Clinic and Texas Health Resources, both of which are members of the Premier healthcare alliance purchasing group. AirStrip has more than 100 customers already.
