CarePartners, a home care nursing agency that provides personal support services, rehabilitation services, and nursing care to over 70,000 patients each year, has selected CellTrak’s VisitManager solution — running on BlackBerry 10 smartphones and managed by BES12 — to mobilize their home care providers.
CarePartners issued BlackBerry 10 smartphones provisioned with CellTrak’s VisitManager mobile healthcare management application to over 4,000 employees in their mobile workforce.
BlackBerry in a statement said that the VisitManager solution enables CarePartners’ home care providers to securely access patient information directly on their BlackBerry 10 smartphones. It allows them to update client records in real-time, and helps them manage their appointments and schedule changes throughout the day.
This apart, the solution allows for secure real-time communications between care providers and back office employees.
“With thousands of home care staff visiting clients each and every day, CarePartners recognized very quickly that they required a solution that gives their care providers convenient and secure access to the information they need and delivers a more integrated approach to logging and managing their hours of service,” said Barry Billings, vice president, CellTrak Canada.
CarePartners is also migrating to BES12 for enterprise mobility management (EMM) to manage their deployment of BlackBerry 10 smartphones. BES12 can manage any mobile deployment model such as BYOD, COPE and COBO, and seamlessly supports iOS, Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry 10 and BlackBerry OS devices.
John Sims, president, Global Sales, BlackBerry, said: “By integrating with partners such as CellTrak, we’re able to provide CarePartners with real-time visibility into their patient data and care plans.”
