AirStrip Becomes First Medical Device Mobility Solution to Receive DIACAP
Certification from U.S. Air Force
Leader in mobile healthcare for clinical transformation meets stringent
Department of Defense security requirements
SAN ANTONIO -- June 11, 2013
AirStrip^TM is now the only mHealth solution for medical device mobility
certified to comply with the security requirements by the Department of
Defense Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP)
by the United States Air Force.
The DIACAP certification ensures that AirStrip applications incorporate the
levels of authentication and encryption necessary for use in United States
government organizations, and allows them to be installed on Department of
Defense (DoD) networks. DIACAP is a standardized methodology for evaluating
the security posture of DoD information systems which, when successful,
provides system certification and accreditation. The recently-issued
Authorization to Operate (ATO) letter allows AirStrip solutions to be deployed
at any Air Force Military Treatment Facility.
“DIACAP certification serves as further independent validation of the
trustworthiness of AirStrip’s patent-protected, FDA-cleared and
HIPAA-compliant technology, employing the most stringent security standards,”
AirStrip CEO Alan Portela said. “AirStrip is raising the bar in
enterprise-wide clinical mobility, both functionally and with the strength of
the AirStrip ONE platform. The DIACAP certification will enable a wide variety
of collaborative mobility efforts with the federal government.”
DIACAP certification is the latest in a series of firsts for AirStrip:
*In August 2012, the U.S. Patent Office awarded AirStrip a patent that
protects the company’s technology, process and method of mobilizing near
real-time physiological data to smartphones and tablets.
*Earlier this year, AirStrip unveiled AirStrip ONE™, the first
