BlackBerry continues its stellar work in healthcare and is now an HIMSS Certified Consultant, in order to help address the digital infrastructure needs of healthcare organisations around the world.
As a Certified Consultant, BlackBerry will guide healthcare organisations through the stages of the Infrastructure Adoption Model (INFRAM), HIMSS Analytics’ newest Maturity Model. Professionally trained on the INFRAM, BlackBerry’s cybersecurity experts can assess a healthcare organisation’s infrastructure architecture and help them achieve their desired INFRAM score.
Similar to the HIMSS Analytics Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model (EMRAM), the INFRAM is an eight stage model (0 – 7) that allows healthcare IT leaders to map the technology infrastructure capabilities required to reach their facility’s clinical and operational goals, while meeting industry benchmarks and standards.
Sara Jost, Global Healthcare Industry Lead at BlackBerry said,
“Securing communication between doctors, patients, medical devices, and infrastructure is BlackBerry’s strength,”
“We’re extremely proud to work with HIMSS Analytics to arm healthcare providers with the critical information they need to provide a higher, more secure, level of care.”
INFRAM (INFRastructure Adoption Model) guides organisations through a specific process and assessment, and at the end creates a bespoke infrastructure architecture roadmap. The organisation can then use this to map out their specific technology requirements based on what they already have in place, and where they want to go.
If you’ve heard of the HIMSS EMRAM (Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model), you will quickly realise that the INFRAM goes hand in hand with the EMRAM and its corresponding levels.
So if you think your organisation is an EMRAM level 4, you can verify this by undertaking the INFRAM assessment and then planning the strategic architecture to get to a level 6 or even 7 – also known to some as EMR nirvana…
Blain Newton, Executive Vice President, HIMSS Analytics commented,
“While EMRAM focused on the effective adoption and implementation of EMR technology, hospitals can now look to INFRAM as the model to help solidify their digital infrastructure,”
“With BlackBerry’s deep cybersecurity expertise and strong footprint in highly regulated industries we’re confident that having BlackBerry at the table will ensure the INFRAM is the gold standard for running a scalable and secure organisation.”
