SAN ANTONIO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mobile healthcare leader AirStrip announced today the first phase of its strategic participation in Microsoft’s AppsForSurface program. As part of the program, the company will launch and make available AirStrip ONETM Cardiology not only on Windows 8.1-enabled mobile devices, but also on laptops and desktops.
“This program highlights Microsoft’s commitment to supporting the mHealth space with solutions that are proven to drive clinical transformation,” AirStrip CEO Alan Portela noted. “Thanks to this program, AirStrip will give healthcare providers a seamless user experience regardless of whether they are using AirStrip solutions on their Windows-enabled mobile devices, a Surface tablet, a laptop, or a desktop. The look, feel and depth of user experience will remain consistent for clinicians, regardless of the device they use. We are proud that Microsoft has recognized AirStrip ONE Cardiology as a pioneering mobile clinical application in the AppsForSurface program,” Portela added.
Coinciding with the Microsoft announcement, AirStrip is finalizing plans for expanded functionality for AirStrip ONE Cardiology that will support mobility throughout the entire cardiology care continuum. Portela indicated that a formal announcement detailing these added features will be released in the near future.
“We are delighted that AirStrip is coming to the Windows platform, and are looking forward to their applications delivering better care across the continuum using devices like Surface,” said Neil Jordan, Worldwide General Manager - Health. “Doctors are telling us they love these Windows tablets, and we know that the industry- leading apps from AirStrip, combined with secure and compelling devices, will see the unlocking of a truly enterprise-class mobile experience for clinicians.”
