Better MDM Launches First Enterprise and Patient App Stores for Healthcare

By Tony Rizzo — December 13, 2011

Better MDM is a provider of a secure and extensive mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM) platform that specifically targets healthcare organizations. The platform complies with state and federal privacy and data security requirements while enabling mobile, real-time monitoring and collaboration of providers, patients, and payers, increasing the quality of care and to reducing the cost in a patient-centered framework.
Through the use of the latest encryption technology and biometric authentication, the newest version of Better MDM offers healthcare organizations data security to fulfill federal HIPAA regulations, as well as state-specific privacy and data security legislative requirements. Better MDM's Active Data Leak Prevention (ADLP) solution prevents data loss as it is transferred over wireless connections.

In addition to these security features, Better MDM is also flexible enough to enable mobile, real-time monitoring and collaboration between providers, patients and payers. The platform is completely scalable, and designed to allow Better MDM to scale alongside an organization's own mobile growth - rightsizing deployments as needed.
Along with security and compliance, Better MDM offers extensive policy management, containerization capabilities, inventory management, over the air (OTA) software updating and provisioning, IT service management, on-premise and cloud (SaaS) capabilities, network service management (allowing for things as  usage and expense management), and administrative control and reporting. Finally Better MDM delivers extensive back end support, including Enterprise platform integration with Exchange Active Sync, LDAP, BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES), certificate authority, help-desk platforms such as Remedy, and network management such as IBM Tivoli. That is an extensive set of features.
Enterprise and Patient App Stores
According to a recent Manhattan Research study, more than 70% of physicians own an iPhone. Rather than prohibiting healthcare employees from using these devices, organizations can utilize the benefits of mobile technology, resulting in cost savings and enhanced patient care. To facilitate this, healthcare organizations are looking for a robust mobile device management solution, as they strive to safely and securely integrate mobile devices into the normal workflow of their healthcare providers. With Better MDM, healthcare organizations can leverage the convenience and efficiencies gained by mobile devices, while maintaining data security.
For these reasons the Better MDM application suite can be divided into two virtual "Stores" that provide organization specific applications. The Enterprise App store gives employees access to corporate applications anytime, anywhere. Through the employee app store, an enterprise can integrate all of their software-supported operations and processes including finance, HR, inventory, marketing, CRM, and resource planning through a single, customized interface.
The patient app store lets patients download and complete registration forms as well as perform research on chronic disease management. This store is an essential tool for chronically ill patients who need a quick, secure means through which to share data from health monitoring devices with their physician. In turn, physicians can make decisions based on real-time patient data, improving the quality and timeliness of healthcare. These not only improve efficiency, but through the use of Better MDM, healthcare organizations also enhance their patient's overall level of care.
