CarePartners Nursing Agency Deploys 4,000 BlackBerry 10 Devices to Employees


CarePartners, the home care nursing agency has recently expanded 4,000 employees with BlackBerry 10 devices. The BlackBerry switch will allow CarePartners to securely access patient information, update client records in real-time, and help them manage scheduling. Accordingly, CarePartners is in transition to BES 12 which supports iOS, Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry.

“We chose BlackBerry and BES12 because of the end-to-end security benefits and high level of management and control it affords us,” said Kelly Baechler, Manager of Organizational Change at CarePartners. “We need to ensure that the GPS is always on, for example, and need the ability to block certain apps from being installed on the device. We can manage all of this through IT policies on BES. We also need to be assured that our patient information is protected, and with BES12 we know the data is secure and that we are complying with PIPEDA and HIPAA regulations. This is crucial for us.”

“It’s cases like this that make technology so important to patient care and safety,” Baechler said. “Access to real-time information using our BlackBerry solution helps us to know exactly what’s happening with our patients and provide continuity of care.”
