Mobile healthcare vendor AirStrip and multi-state health system Dignity Health have expanded their relationship, announcing the next phase of their mobile interoperability plan will center on enabling population health and telehealth initiatives.

Working with a number of hospital facilities and ambulatory physician groups in Dignity Health’s network in the central coast of California, Dignity Health will integrate electronic health records and inpatient and outpatient data sources into a single application with the AirStrip ONE platform.

"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," the companies said in a written statement.

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 EHR, patient monitoring, imaging, and video sources and vendors to support a de-centralized approach the partners say can strengthen physician efficiency.  

A 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 EHR data from Cerner and Allscripts systems respectively," the companies said.
