Healthcare Technology and News: BoxTone Demonstrates its Latest Mobile Management Platform at HIMSS


BoxTone, the expert in proactive Mobile Service Management (MSM) software, is displaying its latest mobile management platform for securing, managing and supporting mobile devices, at HIMSS scheduled from February 20-24, 2011. The company will demonstrate all its products from smartphones to tablets, and mobile applications that are being deployed for use at the point of patient care.

Enterprise mobile devices, including the iPad and other tablet computers are becoming preferred data collection and information access tools for doctors, nurses and clinicians at the point of care. In fact, BoxTone reported in December 2010 that a survey of 950 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) members indicated that iPad deployments are accelerating in large part due to the mobile device's compelling point-of-care applications and uses.

But when a successful patient outcome is on the line, highly reliable mobile service quality, effective support and security count. Therefore healthcare IT organizations must manage the full mobile lifecycle from deployment through operational support to retirement. Once securely deployed, the mobile devices and applications must be continuously monitored, proactively identifying service issues and automating Level 1-3 support to reduce downtime while also ensuring that devices are secured and compliant with all appropriate IT policies.

At HIMSS, Booth #218 – New & Emerging Technology Pavilion, BoxTone is demonstrating how its MSM software solution can 24/7 enable, deploy, support, audit and protect access to the iPad and other new tablets and mobile devices within the healthcare industry to help ensure optimal services levels and maximum security, at the lowest cost and risk.

BoxTone was in news when it announced the launch of its Public Sector Practice. This latest launch is designed to serve the specific mobility management requirements of federal, state and local government entities and the military.
