A recent press release from AT&T Inc. dated January 23, 2012 announces two highly-secured offers from the company to “help healthcare providers manage regulatory compliance and the protection of patient privacy in deploying tablets and using messaging.”

According to the press release, AT&T is bringing AT&T Managed Tablets and AT&T Global Smart Messaging Suite for Healthcare, Powered by Soprano to the market.

Here is the description of the said services as quoted from their press release:

AT&T Managed Tablets – a highly-secure, end-to-end management solution bundling software and services with any tablet that is easy to purchase and deploy.

  • The offer enables customers to better regulate the use of tablets by controlling their introduction into the networked environment, ensuring that the devices have the appropriate security capabilities and can be remotely erased if the device is lost or stolen.
  • By using AT&T Managed Tablets, healthcare systems and hospitals can provide highly-secure access to resources, records and information at the fingertips of healthcare professionals kept in the facility’s information infrastructure — which can provide patients’ information within seconds.
  • AT&T Managed Tablets meets a variety of needs; options range from a fully procured and managed model to a bring-your-own-device model, where AT&T enables an employee’s personal tablet to be ready for use in the healthcare field.

AT&T Global Smart Messaging Suite for Healthcare, Powered by Soprano – the mobile messaging platform now includes encrypted outbound messages in support of HIPAA compliance, so patients can opt to receive highly-secure healthcare communications,such as appointment reminders, payment notices and test results.

  • A new messaging application called Cipher enables the transmission of encrypted information.
  • A downloadable application called AT&T Secure Messaging allows for decryption of the message.
  • The platform is available across carriers and on any smartphone or select feature phones.

The press release noted that healthcare providers can see demonstrations of these solutions at booth #3829 at HIMSS12 in Las Vegas from February 20 – 24, 2012.
