AirStrip® and Life Monitor Pty Ltd., a subsidiary of Cardioscan Pty Ltd., today announced the formation of a strategic partnership to sell AirStrip solutions in Australia and New Zealand. Both the AirStrip ONE® mobile interoperability platform and the Sense4Baby wireless fetal/maternal monitoring system will be available as part of the agreement.
"We are delighted to partner with AirStrip in Australia and New Zealand," said Cardioscan CEO Merredea Hudgson. "Our pedigree of managing time-sensitive health information over 30 years has us well placed to support the AirStrip rollout. Discussions we have already had with our existing customer base demonstrate the significant interest that exists in the Australian and New Zealand markets for AirStrip, and we believe this will be a very successful market for AirStrip and Life Monitor."
Life Monitor streamlines connectivity across the healthcare sector, providing the Ideal Life Operating platform and associate peripheral devices to enable clients to remotely manage health and wellness at home, especially for chronic disease management. The AirStrip ONE/Life Monitor partnership will provide complete interoperability with inpatient and outpatient medical records, live patient data from a wide variety of medical devices and secure communication between care team members, all within a single, intuitive user experience.
"AirStrip and Life Monitor share a core purpose: to enable care collaboration," AirStrip President Matt Patterson said. "By serving as a catalyst for customer innovation, we believe AirStrip solutions will quickly be adopted by leading providers in Australia and New Zealand, and look forward to implementing this phase of AirStrip's international rollout plan."
This marks the latest international partnership announcement from AirStrip, the industry-leading provider of mobile clinical applications and mobile interoperability. Patterson noted an accelerating international demand for both AirStrip ONE and the Sense4Baby system.
