Fifth Eye, an Ann Arbor-based provider of real-time clinical analytics, partnered with AirStrip, a developer of an enterprise-grade platform for comprehensive medical data interoperability, analytics, and mobile visualization in San Antonio.

The partnership includes an undisclosed investment by AirStrip into Fifth Eye, as well as the integration and reselling of Fifth Eye’s AHI System for real-time detection and prediction of hemodynamic instability into the AirStrip ONE platform for in-hospital surveillance.

AirStrip helps health systems unlock the full potential of their existing medical technology infrastructure with its interoperability platform, AirStrip ONE, which provides clinicians with seamless access to near-real-time clinical and physiologic data — when and where they need it — via secure access controlled by the health system.

Fifth Eye’s AHI System brings new information to the AirStrip ONE platform with the same ease of access. The AHI System detects trends and predicts first episodes of hemodynamic instability 48 minutes ahead of vital signs. And since data is automatically collected and updated every two minutes, AHI reduces the surveillance burden on the nursing staff while providing access to new and valuable information to help them confidently prioritize their time.

“We are excited to deepen our relationship with AirStrip, an industry-leader in interoperability,” says Jen Baird, CEO of Fifth Eye. “Clinicians need access to clinically actionable information, while simultaneously reducing the time and effort required to collect, record, and interpret data. Our partnership with AirStrip will enable forward thinking health systems to more quickly deliver the information that clinicians need to improve outcomes and reduce their surveillance burden.”

Alan Portela, CEO of AirStrip, says, “With persistent high patient census and ongoing staffing challenges, clinicians are being asked to do more with less. Our AirStrip ONE platform and advanced virtual surveillance tools are designed to increase clinical staff productivity, clinical communications, and to empower clinicians to focus on acute patient care with actionable information – available anytime and anywhere.

“In Fifth Eye, we see a complementary partner that can enhance the value that we bring to healthcare providers. Fifth Eye has demonstrated momentum with their recent FDA clearance for the second-generation AHI System, and with the positive feedback that they have received from hospitals in which they are deployed.”
