Featured physician executive: William Cameron Powell MD, FACOG

Each week, we feature a physician executive. This week's featured physician executive is William Cameron Powell MD, FACOG. He is: President, Chief Medical Officer and Co-Founder AirStrip Technologies™

Dr. Cameron Powell is an innovator in the field of remote healthcare surveillance, having developed a technology platform that addresses the many challenges facing the modern healthcare system. Dr. Powell’s company, AirStrip Technologies, has developed a next-generation system that can improve patient safety, strengthen communication among busy healthcare providers, and keep extraordinarily busy physicians in a position to keep a close eye on patients at any time. Dr. Powell, an obstetrician by training stopped practicing in 2008 to devote himself full-time to AirStrip Technologies. Dr. Powell has the real-world medical experience that drove the creation of AirStrip’s Observer Suite™ of products. As Dr. Powell himself notes, “There is a serious worldwide concern regarding the shortage of healthcare providers. This problem is projected to become worse in the next decade. AirStrip Technologies directly addresses this issue with a system that expands the ability of doctors to care for more patients, more closely.” The development of AirStrip Technologies is a classic business success story. With a vision of building a system that offers remote monitoring capabilities for use throughout the healthcare system, Dr. Powell connected with his future partner, Trey Moore, through their local church in San Antonio, Texas. Together, they fleshed out the idea and built the platform that has become AirStrip Technologies. Just a few short years after this initial brainstorm, AirStrip Technologies has staked its claim as the only known technology firm delivering a virtual real-time wireless remote healthcare surveillance system that works with smart phones, laptops and desktop computers. The AirStrip Technologies Observer Suite includes AirStrip OB™, one of the world’s most reliable mobile software solutions, providing secure, remote access to virtual real-time, medical waveform data. AirStrip OB is FDA-cleared and now in use by hospitals throughout the U.S. AirStrip CARDIOLOGY™ and AirStrip CRITICAL CARE™ are now in the advanced stages of testing and are expected to be submitted for FDA clearance in the near future.
