As Headline sponsors of the event it wasn’t surprising that RIM – the manufacturers of the BlackBerry – were set on proving their leadership of the mHealth market…. but the successful programmes that Daniel Morrison-Gardiner talked of really showed why BlackBerry are the leading mobile handset manufacturer in the professional Healthcare market.
The presentation consisted of 3 deep dive case studies into the key business and patient benefits for Healthcare providers. This proved very convincing of the key benefits of the BlackBerry Mobile Solution as you would’ve found it difficult to pick a more diverse range of case studies, they included:
A great use of the bluetooth pens to enhance the care experience and minimise paper work.
> Enabling Mobile access to patient & care plan details for Direct Care Services at Glasgow City Council
By enabling Mobile access to client details and care plan details such as contacts with family/doctor/nurse, Glasgow City Council got a return on investment with 14 days and made a £1 million of savings. Not only did the mobilised solution reduce the need for extensive coordination tasks it led to faster response times, and increases in data accuracy by removing the inaccuracies introduced by manual interventions such as re-keying and voice conversations.
> Mobilising critical patient data at University Hospitals Birmingham
If you want to be surprised by the power of the mobile to reform large high security healthcare practice I suggest you contact the BlackBerry Healthcare team and ask for this case study… University Hospital Birmingham has built a bespoke transplant management solution in conjunction with BlackBerry that enables access to real time information with end-to-end encryption across a multitude of different platforms to maintain, search for and profile patients/organs for organ donation.
The program has “eliminated confidentiality risk”, increased ease of use and improved the speed of donor/recipient matching. The team are now working to extend the application to other transplant teams, replace the hospital paging system with BlackBerry smartphones and integrating the BlackBerry solution into its emergency preparedness plans.
