Full Story

Challenge

ABUHB’s serves one-fifth of the Welsh population in both hospital and in-home settings. The health care providers needed a way to communicate quickly and efficiently among staff to better coordinate patient care.  With medical histories and confidential patient information, security was another big concern for ABUHB. There were also budgetary concerns about implementing a new mobility solution.

Solution

New BlackBerry 10 smartphones were issued to employees, and ABUHB upgraded its BlackBerry® Enterprise Server 5 (BES5) to BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 (BES10) for its enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution. ABUHB chose BES10 for its ability to securely manage other devices as they wanted to implement bring your own device (BYOD) and corporate owned, personally enabled (COPE) policies. BBM™ has also enhanced communications among staff. ABUHB has also been doing a pilot test of BBM Protected, which adds a layer of additional encryption to BBM messages between employees while allowing them to use the same BBM app to message family and friends.
