Healthcare organizations have been using mobile devices, mainly tablets, for better patient engagement and keeping up with patient’s medical history. Moving on from case sheets, clipboards and paperwork made the process of consultation, diagnosis and treatment more efficient. Hexnode UEM manages mobile devices in an enterprise level, thus shaping the device functionality that suits the requirement.
Hospitals may deploy devices of any platform such as iOS, macOS, tvOS, Android devices along with advanced support on Samsung Knox, LG GATE, Kyocera, Windows mobiles, tablets and PCs. Hexnode manages all of them under its single console.
The kiosk mode enables locking down devices to a single app or multiple apps and websites. In this mode, the device will have limited functionality due to the restrictions enforced over hardware and software.
Many device vendors offer advanced enrollment options for enterprises. Apple Deployment Programs (DEP), Android Enterprise Recommended and G Suite is supported by Hexnode UEM which enables Zero-Touch Enrollment of devices in bulk.
Hexnode enables the hospital or healthcare organization achieve HIPAA specified standards. The secure containers and kiosk mode provide safe access to PHI (Protected Health Information) in the devices.
Since the hospital’s mobile devices contain risk prone patient information, fast security actions like device lock, wipe and lost mode come in handy in certain situations. For a device that is lost, the features such as location tracking, Find my iPad etc, turns out useful.
Instead of redundant paperwork and filling out forms, a mobile tablet is used to collect patient information and conduct surveys. Kiosks with online forms will reduce the time and effort of both staff and patient.
Platform compatible restriction set available in Hexnode UEM enables enforcing strict control over the device. Inappropriate device functionalities for a hospital environment such as camera, call and messaging, social networks, screenshots etc., can be disabled.
Going through stacks of medical records in order to find the case history of the patient is a tiring process. With Hexnode, the patient’s PHI can be made available to the doctor without fussing about the data security.
