Challenge

  • Medical staff at Hospital Pablo Tobon Uribe needed better access to technology to be able to look up medical records
  • The staff responsible for cleaning, maintaining and assigning beds to patients needed to be reached using a two-way radio or by sending someone to look for them
  • During blood collections, field staff didn’t have remote and direct access to the hospital’s donors directory

Solution

Hospital Pablo Tobon Uribe developed three custom applications for BlackBerry smartphones to help improve efficiency for medical rounds, bed management and blood donors. Hospital Pablo Tobon Uribe pushes the BlackBerry apps to their employees using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, which was chosen for its ability to help centralize IT management and safeguard sensitive information.

Benefits

  • Time efficiency for doctors
  • Faster allocation of beds; reduced waiting times for patients
  • More efficient blood donor screening process
  • Improved hospital efficiency and service
