Mobile Healthcare


Provide Better Mobile Healthcare

The healthcare industry has seen a dramatic increase in the use of mobile devices used in the workplace. New technologies and applications are helping to lower costs, increase healthcare provider productivity and provide a higher quality of care to patients. Because physicians and nurses are using mobile devices to access medical records, submit prescriptions and diagnose illnesses, patient privacy and protecting sensitive data must be at the forefront of a healthcare provider’s mobile strategy.

AirWatch is focused on the healthcare industry and has a dedicated team of account executives who understand the market. We also have a healthcare-specific R&D team committed to developing solutions most relevant to healthcare organizations.

Key Features for Healthcare

Enhanced Security

AirWatch provides enhanced security capabilities to maintain HIPAA compliance on devices accessing electronic protected health information (ePHI) to protect patient privacy. Our advanced security capabilities include strong user authentication using AD/LDAP; certificate-based access to enterprise email, Wi-Fi and VPN; safeguarding apps and documents; and setting device feature restrictions.

Multi-User Management

Enabling physicians, nurses and other staff to share mobile devices allows everyone a convenient way to care for patients and reduces the costs associated with assigning a device to each user. AirWatch provides a seamless user experience by automatically configuring data, apps and content available for each user once they are authenticated and check-out a device. When a user checks-in a device, it is locked down and inaccessible to unauthorized users.

Multi-tenant Architecture

AirWatch's multi-tenant architecture enables healthcare IT administrators to manage devices based on user roles, device types or organization groups in a central location. From the AirWatch console, you can manage users across the entire health system, including different staff, hospitals, specialties, departments, medical centers and locations. Your IT administrators can maintain control over the entire device fleet at a global level, while empowering individual hospitals or departments to maintain visibility and control of devices in their particular environment.

App Management

Medical apps are rapidly being developed for diagnosis, electronic medical records and much more. AirWatch provides a way to securely deploy these apps through our Enterprise App Catalog. Build custom internal apps with the AirWatch Software Development Kit (SDK) or wrap existing internal applications for advanced security.

Secure Content Locker

With the AirWatch Secure Content LockerTM, healthcare organizations can securely distribute and enable user access to sensitive documents from a mobile device. Transmit documents over industry standard 256-bit SSL encrypted connections and prevent access for unauthorized users or non-compliant devices. Control a user’s ability to edit, share or open files in unauthorized apps.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

Healthcare employees are using personal devices to access hospital schedules, email and patient information. AirWatch allows you to manage and apply strong security policies across corporate- and employee-owned devices. AirWatch can also remotely wipe all corporate and patient information from user devices.
