Company’s Ability to Mitigate Security Risks is Critical for Transforming Patient Care
MINNEAPOLIS – August 23, 2017 – Jamf, the leader in Apple device management, today announced that Simplifeye has chosen Jamf Pro to help mitigate risks around the use of patient information on wearable technology.
Simplifeye, a New York City startup, knew they could solve a lot of problems that affect medical clinics, but they needed a strategic partner. That’s when they contacted Jamf to manage the iPhone devices that are tied to each Apple Watch.
“In healthcare, there’s a big concern around data security. With Jamf, we are able to secure iPhones to offer the customer comfort that their patient data is secure,” said Zach Hungate, co-founder and CEO of Simplifeye.
Simplifeye is a SaaS platform of applications that connect Apple technology to an organization’s electronic medical record (EMR). After syncing with the EMR, schedule and patient information seamlessly moves between Simplifeye’s apps available on the Apple Watch, iPhone and iPad. This functionality allows healthcare teams to easily see their patients’ medical records on any device – a benefit that disconnects them from their computer and allows for more streamlined and personal interactions with patients.
“We partner with Apple as our hardware and Jamf as our mobile device management (MDM) solution to deliver a complete, out-of-the-box product for our customers,” Hungate said.
New York dentist, Dr. Gary Kay, said he’s seen huge improvements to the efficiency of his practice, as well as an increase in patient experience, since implementing Apple Watch devices in his office. He further explained that having Jamf keep the information he accesses on his watch secure is a top priority. “As dentists, we have a responsibility to guard the data of our patients, to guard that security very, very carefully. So if we’re going to use any device, we have to make sure that it complies with the whole spectrum of HIPAA regulations.”
Jamf is excited to be a part of the movement that’s transforming the healthcare industry with technology. “Partnering with Simplifeye gives us the ability to help improve the experience patients have while at their clinic or hospital,” said Dean Hager, CEO of Jamf. “We’re actively working to improve healthcare by providing a solution that allows caregivers to put patients first, so working with Simplifeye to accomplish that with wearable technology is a great fit.”
