iRemedy Healthcare Named First U.S. Distributor of the AirStrip® Sense4Baby™ System

STUART, FL and SAN ANTONIO, TX--(Marketwired - May 19, 2015) -  Paquin Healthcare Companies today announced that its subsidiary, iRemedy Healthcare, Inc. ("iRemedy"), a fully integrated digital solutions company specializing in national end-to-end ecommerce for the healthcare industry, has formed a strategic supplier agreement in which iRemedy becomes the first U.S. distributor of the AirStrip® Sense4Baby system, a non-invasive, wireless electronic maternal and fetal monitoring system created with a mobile health vision in mind. iRemedy will be responsible for managing all order management and fulfillment and customer service for devices being shipped to professional care providers and expectant mothers.

Over ten years ago, AirStrip pioneered mobile monitoring in obstetrics with the industry's first application to make live waveforms accessible via an iOS mobile device. Today, one in six babies born in the U.S. is monitored with AirStrip. In early April 2015, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration cleared the AirStrip Sense4Baby system to be marketed in the U.S. for use by pregnant patients to self-administer non-stress tests (NST) at home with proper training and a care team's interpretation of the data. This unique remote fetal monitoring solution utilizes wireless technology and a smart device to transmit biometric data to a HIPAA-compliant, cloud-based data storage system.

"We are very pleased to be teaming with iRemedy Healthcare, which has impressed us with their proven, turnkey, healthcare supply and logistics management platform and world class customer service group," stated AirStrip President Matt Patterson, M.D. "Through our new alliance, we look forward to making the benefits of our breakthrough technology widely available to physicians and patients alike, and be supported by true industry professionals whose commitment to enriching our customers' user experience is as imperative to them as it is to us."

Tony Paquin, President and CEO of Paquin Healthcare, echoed Dr. Patterson's excitement about the new relationship, adding, "It is always thrilling when we're able to bring together two companies that both have longstanding heritages built on quality, service and customer solutions. We are honored to be expanding our growing national client base with the AirStrip brand, and take tremendous pride in being selected to be the first U.S. supplier of their revolutionary remote material and fetal monitoring system."
