BlackBerry’s are not dead, especially when you have a hospital system that has been using the mobile smart phones as part of their plan for a few years. We have a lot of choices today and granted others such as the Iphone and Ipad are moving in to a lot of new areas, but even with bringing in new devices it’s time to call the IT folks in and set up new security, etc. BlackBerry is still considered a very secure form of communication and depending on the networking and services in place, it still could stand to be a preferred methodology. I particularly like this video as it shows some real phone screens and samples of the information and format that are used on the smart phones. Back in 2009 I spoke with Fraser Edward from BlackBerry and there’s some additional information at the link below on how they integrate with healthcare solutions with some still applicable and some of the information has been updated as happens with all mobile technologies today.
