On the heels of a successful first project launched in the Phoenix, Arizona market, AirStrip and Dignity Health are launching the next phase of their mobile interoperability plan, which will now center on enabling population health and telehealth initiatives in Dignity Health’s Central Coast region of California.
Comprised of more than 60,000 caregivers and staff members delivering care in 20 states, the San Francisco-based Dignity Health is the largest hospital operator in California. AirStrip offers interoperable mobile healthcare solutions that drive clinical transformation, including AirStrip ONE – the enterprise-capable, vendor-, platform- and data-source-agnostic clinical mobility solution.
The successful results of the project in the Phoenix area included simultaneous integration of rich inpatient and outpatient EMR data from Cerner and Allscripts systems, respectively.Beginning in October, the two companies 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.
“Ultimately, AirStrip ONE will help us align our quality incentive programs and more effectively manage risk, as well as make real strides in patient engagement,” said Dignity Health VP, CMIO – Population Health Davin Lundquist M.D. “This initiative will build out over time to include tools that allow patients to communicate directly with physicians, including video capabilities that support the development of virtual office visits.”
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. The successful results included simultaneous integration of rich inpatient and outpatient EMR data from Cerner and Allscripts systems, respectively.
