AirStrip and Dignity Health announced that the next phase of their mobile interoperability plan will center on enabling population health and telehealth initiatives in Dignity Health’s Central Coast region of California.
“With this initial success under our belt, we look forward to supporting Dignity Health’s initiatives in population health management, telehealth and consumer engagement.”
Comprised of more than 60,000 caregivers and staff members who deliver care in 20 states, the San Francisco-based Dignity Health is one of the largest health systems in the nation and the largest hospital operator in California. AirStrip is the leading provider of interoperable mobile healthcare solutions that drive clinical transformation, including AirStrip ONE® – the first enterprise-capable, vendor-, platform- and data-source-agnostic clinical mobility solution.
Working with a number of hospital facilities and ambulatory physician groups, the AirStrip ONE solution will allow Dignity Health to integrate multiple EMRs and inpatient and outpatient data sources into a single application. Combining the data delivered to clinicians with clinical and quality metrics will allow Dignity Health to monitor and improve performance, and to target specific patient pools to impact care decisions.
Beginning in October, Dignity Health and AirStrip also plan to incorporate a telehealth initiative at four facilities in the Sacramento region that enables tele-stroke and tele-ICU consultations from virtually anywhere. The solution is agnostic, leveraging different existing EMR, patient monitoring, imaging and video sources and vendors to support a de-centralized approach that can strengthen physician efficiency.
The recently-completed AirStrip/Dignity Health project in the Phoenix area focused on co-developing AirStrip ONE use cases in primary care, with a goal of enabling physicians to extend delivery of specialty care and support areas of expertise across Dignity Health facilities, while maintaining contact with patient data in near-real-time. The successful results included simultaneous integration of rich inpatient and outpatient EMR data from Cerner and Allscripts systems respectively.
