Healthcare Organisation Deploys Enterprise Mobility and Content Management Solutions for Mobile Workforce

Friday, January 16, 2015.

HealthTronics, Inc., a top provider of integrated urological and interventional radiology products and services has selected AirWatch by VMware, the leading EMM solution provider, for its Enterprise Mobility and content management requirements.

The deployment of industry-leading AirWatch EMM, and AirWatch Secure Content Locker file sync and share, will allow HealthTronics to manage its mobile workforce from the simple, unified AirWatch platform.

As a newly-independent company, following a successful spinoff, HealthTronics has chosen AirWatch to deliver a single vendor platform solution for more than 650 mobile devices and 500 employees across the organisation.

With almost half of its workforce operating exclusively on smartphones and tablets, content collaboration was also a key component in the decision to select AirWatch.

After reportedly evaluating multiple providers, HealthTronics chose AirWatch EMM and then implemented AirWatch Secure Content Locker, as it met its stringent enablement requirements. The solution from AirWatch will provide HealthTronics’ IT departments with a seamless experience across device types for EMM, content collaboration and file sync and share.

"We selected AirWatch EMM and Secure Content Locker to leverage a unified platform that lowered costs and increased ROI," said Evan Bowers, CIO, HealthTronics. "The platform provides a deep level of granularity on user security controls and in-depth reporting capabilities. Secure Content Locker delivers true content control and document tracking for IT and mobile user collaboration and annotation tools for our end users. AirWatch gives us the information about implementation and usage detail we need in the regulated healthcare industry."

AirWatch enables HealthTronics to benefit from sizable economies of scale, including an integrated administration platform, reduced IT overheads, reduced procurement and implementation issues and reduced total cost of ownership. Secure Content Locker helps with the company's content management needs, including secure content viewing, document management, editing and annotating on mobile, content tracking, analytics and secure sandbox email attachments.

"AirWatch by VMware enables healthcare organisations like HealthTronics to drive mobile innovation and revolutionise the industry, with access to real-time medical information, customise consultations and maintain patient-clinician communication while adhering to HIPAA regulations," said John Marshall, Senior Vice President and general manager, AirWatch by VMware.

"We've dedicated significant resources to create the broadest platform and depth of expertise, that empowers healthcare organisations to address challenges in the industry, from remote home health organisations to the largest healthcare systems in the world."
