BlackBerry technology is heading to Barbados!
The Waterloo-based company is looking to make healthcare communication more efficient in the Caribbean by teaming up with MedRegis.
90% of doctors in the Caribbean still rely on pen and paper to communicate with patients and colleagues - this is something MedRegis has been looking to improve.
The Barbados-based company currently offers e-health applications to provide better delivery of care, but have now teamed up with BlackBerry to amp up their services.
Using BBM Enterprise SDK, MedRegis is able to improve its platform with secure voice, video, and messaging functionality.
"Our goal is to eradicate the widespread use of paper within ambulatory care in the Caribbean," says Dale Trotman, MedRegis CEO. "By integrating BlackBerry's BBM Enterprise with our platform, we are empowering healthcare providers to do just that through a secure and proven video, voice and messaging technology. With BlackBerry's help, MedRegis will streamline workflow and usability in a way paper cannot."
BlackBerry boasting that this will not only improve efficiency and communication, but also provide a safe and confidential option for healthcare providers in the Caribbean.
They add, in the last 5 years, poor communication was a factor in 30 percent of U.S. malpractice cases.
