BlackBerry and Sharecare Partner to Accelerate Consumer-Driven Healthcare and Enable Secure Communication

Sharecare First Company to Integrate BlackBerry Software Into Native Mobile Applications on iOS, Android and BB10 Devices

BlackBerry today announced at CES 2016 a partnership with Sharecare, a leading digital health and wellness engagement platform, to provide consumers with better and more secure insights into their health.

Over 41 million people have shared more than 6 billion data points about their health status and habits with Sharecare, which uses that information to create a comprehensive health profile where each user can access their health resources in one place, and connect to the care they need.

With security and privacy of its consumers a top priority, Sharecare will be the first company to integrate BBM messaging and VOIP infrastructure capabilities into its native application – regardless of smartphone or operating system.

This strategic technology collaboration between Sharecare and BlackBerry will integrate Sharecare’s proprietary fractal voice analysis into BlackBerry’s secure messaging to increase consumer self-awareness, reduce stress and improve relationships, all while providing the gold-standard in consumer privacy.

Building on this, the companies will move to enable consumers to safely store, manage and update their health information in one place, enable doctors and healthcare professionals to privately communicate with patients, and offer secure tele-health services.

“At Sharecare, we strive to make healthcare more accessible by allowing consumers to ask, learn and act on their health and wellness, and we recognize mobility is an integral way consumers live, transact and interact,” said Jeff Arnold, Chairman and CEO, Sharecare.

Marty Beard, COO, BlackBerry said:

“With BlackBerry, we are safeguarding against vulnerabilities and taking responsibility to address privacy concerns in the healthcare industry.” “With the accessibility mobility provides, it also comes with the increased risk of data breaches that can compromise patient information and care,”

“When it comes to managing our health, it is imperative we provide secure solutions that address privacy concerns for organizations like Sharecare, in order to address one of the critical requirements for mass adoption of mobile healthcare solutions.”
