BlackBerry today announced that it has been appointed HIMSS Analytics Certified Consultant. The company is thus certified by HIMSS Analytics, a global healthcare IT consultant. Thanks to this certification, BlackBerry can show healthcare institutions worldwide that they can support them in the development of the digital infrastructure.

As a certified consultant, BlackBerry guides healthcare organisations through the various steps in the Infrastructure Adoption Model (INFRAM). INFRAM is the latest Maturity Model from HIMSS Analytics. BlackBerry cyber experts assess the quality of healthcare institutions’ IT infrastructure and then help them achieve the required INFRAM score.

Improving healthcare

Just like the HIMSS Analytics Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model (EMRAM), the model that allows hospitals to see how far they have come with the implementation of technology for sustainability and improvement of healthcare, the INFRAM is an eight-step model (0 7). INFRAM enables IT managers to identify the technology infrastructure capabilities needed to achieve clinical and operational goals that meet industry standards and standards.

Blain Newton, Executive Vice President at HIMSS Analytics, said that hospitals could look to INFRAM to develop their digital infrastructure. By leveraging BlackBerry’s expertise in cyber security, HIMSS Analytics is committed to making INFRAM the highest standard in managing a scalable and secure organization.

Supporting Healthcare Professionals

The security of communications between physicians, patients, medical devices and infrastructure is also the strength of Sara Jost, Global Healthcare Industry Lead at BlackBerry. The cooperation with HIMSS Analytics makes it possible, in her opinion, to support healthcare providers in dealing with essential information that is necessary to provide care at a higher and safer level.

Last month, BlackBerry also announced a number of new developments in healthcare. The company introduces a blockchain solution where medical data can be stored and shared; comes up with a medical device operating system; and works with Mackenzie Innovation Institute and Melanoma Institute Australia.
