GE HealthCare has recently announced a significant joint commercialization agreement with AirStrip, marking a strategic collaboration to distribute patient monitoring technology. The partnership, revealed in early December of this year, involves the exclusive distribution of AirStrip's cardiology and patient monitoring solutions in the United States by GE HealthCare.
AirStrip's patient monitoring technology is renowned for its data visualization capabilities, facilitated through a proprietary native mobile application. Clinicians can access clinical data seamlessly on mobile devices and web platforms, providing a versatile and efficient means of monitoring patient health.
Under the terms of the agreement, GE HealthCare becomes the sole distributor of AirStrip's innovative cardiac and monitoring technology in the U.S. This collaboration is aimed at streamlining and optimizing in-patient care solutions, offering healthcare systems a comprehensive package of data visualization technology.
The joint solution empowers clinicians with the ability to view patient data remotely, enabling remote collaboration and efficient management of multiple patients on a single screen by priority. The collaboration focuses on addressing current challenges in the healthcare environment, including clinician shortages and burnout, by providing a unified solution that enhances real-time and remote patient monitoring.
