With continuous advancements in technology, the healthcare landscape is rapidly changing. Providers are looking for ways to deliver faster, more personalized care to their patients while improving communications within their care teams. Technology can help providers achieve these goals and Apple devices can be a natural fit for both patients and care providers alike.
Mobile device management can help ensure these devices are set up, managed and protected. That's where Jamf comes in. Jamf Now is an on-demand Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution that enables over-the-air distribution of apps, data and configuration settings across both macOS and iOS devices.
According to global research conducted by an independent agency, security is the number one concern for healthcare organizations managing mobile devices. Of the 550 IT decision makers surveyed throughout the US, Australia, France, Germany and the UK, one in four said they are not confident in their current MDM solution. While the sizes of the public and private healthcare organizations they support vary, from fewer than 100 employees to 2,000 or more, the majority of those surveyed shared the same major concerns about security, data privacy and inappropriate employee use.
Mobile devices are now commonplace in healthcare. Of those surveyed, 83% said their healthcare organization provides either smartphones or tablets to caregivers, with 45% of non-medical staff also receiving mobile devices. When it comes to patients, 31% currently receive a mobile device, with that number expected to grow significantly to 39% over the next two years.
Whether these devices are being used to access a single app for check in, entertain patients or to accompany healthcare providers in the field, Jamf Now can help manage them.
Most importantly, Jamf Now keeps the devices, and the information on them, secure. You can use Jamf Now to assure the device is protected with a passcode, data is encrypted and if a device were to be misplaced, you can remotely lock it and wipe all sensitive data from the device.
