Scripps Health is testing a software system at one of its hospitals that lets some doctors and nurses access near-real time vital signs of critical care patients on their smartphones or wireless tablets.
“The AirStrip ONE pilot study fits with Scripps’ broader effort to evaluate and adopt the most promising digital health technology that can help to improve patient outcomes and transform the way we deliver health care,” said Scripps President and CEO Chris Van Gorder in a FierceMedicalDevices article about the project.
The system will be tested for 60 days in Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla’s first-floor critical care unit on post-open heart surgery patients, trauma patients, surgical intensive care patients and others who are critically ill and require close monitoring, according to a report by the online trade media outlet HITConsultant.
