There are various apps that BlackBerry has developed that lets doctors and paramedics access to critical information of patients on a secure connection through smartphones and laptops. Enclosed are some of the applications developed for the BlackBerry platform which are currently being used by medical professionals and institutions across India.

Healthcare Enterprise Applications

MphRx Connect is an application available on BlackBerry smartphones that securely connects an archive of radiology images, lab reports and other patient information. The clinicians can access these reports from their smartphones and/or laptops. Max Healthcare uses MphRx application with the help of BlackBerry enterprise server to make it available to the doctors.
