Healthcare professionals are using Notate to keep patient records secure

Sarah Jost, RN, Blackberry's Global Healthcare Industry Lead responsible for healthcare strategy, blogged today about how heathcare providers can protect patient privacy. In this article she explained how professionals are using Notate for just this purpose. You can read the full article here, or see the Notate excerpt below: http://blogs.blackberry.com/2017/07/our-bodies-our-data-how-healthcare-providers-can-protect-patient-privacy/

Healthcare professionals can use Notate to capture scans and patient records and securely send them to colleagues (using the software’s FIPS-certified encryption and integration with Mobile Device Management (MDM) software such as our BlackBerry UEM). The scans remain encrypted on the device and in transit, and never appear on the unprotected camera roll, or in the cloud. This allows healthcare professionals to meet government regulations to keep patient information private.

Enterprises, especially healthcare providers, need to take patient and customer privacy seriously. They also need to give their workers up-to-date tools so they don’t seek consumer-grade, insecure workarounds. Why not deploy technology that combines unbeatable productivity and top-flight security into a single package? Call it whole-body wellness for enterprises.
