Apple declares San Antonio-based AirStrip Technologies’ cardiac patient monitoring app the best medical app for the iPhone.
The App Store editorial team selected AirStrip Technologies’ app as part of its App Store Rewind 2011, which collects the year’s top apps.
“This recognition from Apple is deeply gratifying and reinforces what clinicians across the country are saying about AirStrip CARDIOLOGY — that this is a game-changing application that is already saving lives,” AirStrip Technologies CEO Alan Portela said in a statement.
The free AirStrip Cardiology app is specially designed for clinicians to monitor patients remotely. It allows them to receive ECG data on their iPad or iPhone.
The Federal Drug Administration has approved AirStrip’s patient monitoring app and its Airstrip OB app, which allows physicians to remotely monitor pregnant women during labor.
