mHealth News Briefs with Tim Bredrup
Verizon Enterprise Solutions, Motorola Mobility Inc. and BoxTone are collaborating to develop a comprehensive mobile solution to help satisfy the unique security, reliability and usability requirements of the health care industry. By providing health care practitioners with secure mobile devices and apps, patient care can be improved through the sharing of clinical data in near-real time to help speed decision making and control costs.
The jointly created offering leverages BoxTone’s automated Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) software platform on select Motorola devices, such as the DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX smartphones, as well as DROID XYBOARD 10.1 and 8.2 tablets–all of which tap the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network. Health care organizations can now deploy Android-based mobile devices and apps that are designed to help them meet strict compliance requirements, including privacy measures outlined in the Health Information Portability and Accountability (HIPAA) Act of 1996.
This comprehensive solution proactively addresses mobile security and privacy by incorporating a new layer of data protection with automated mobile device and application management, thereby helping to enable widespread Android adoption in health care. Motorola Mobility and BoxTone are both Verizon Business Solutions Alliance partners.
