BlackBerry (NYSE:BB; TSE:BB) has announced partnerships to work with the delivery of patient care enabled by the Enterprise of Things (EoT).

As quoted in the press release:

“We are applying our expertise in security, data privacy, and communication work in regulated industries such as automotive, financial services, and government to tackle one of the biggest challenges in the healthcare industry: leveraging healthcare endpoints to improve patient outcomes while ensuring security and data privacy,” said John Chen, Executive Chairman and CEO of BlackBerry.

Ultra-Secure Storage and Transfer of Medical Data with BlackBerry’s NOC and Blockchain Technology
The company will be using its renowned carrier-grade network operation center (NOC) to power a blockchain digital ledger, provided by ONEBIO, to create an ultra-secure global ecosystem for the storing and sharing of medical data. For example, data could be inputted by patients, laboratories, and IoT biometric devices, and then anonymized so this data can be shared with researchers.

BlackBerry is offering this new secure blockchain solution for the first time to the Global Commission, an organization focused on ending the diagnostic odyssey for children with a rare disease. Co-chaired by Shire, the leading global biotech focused on rare diseases, one of the Global Commission’s technology pilots will explore how BlackBerry’s new solution might provide real-time, actionable analysis as the Commission seeks to use technology to shorten the time to diagnosis.
