BlackBerry is reaching into the health-care sector with the purchase of a minority stake in U.S.-based technology company NantHealth.
NantHealth said its cloud-based platform is installed in about 250 hospitals and connects more than 16,000 medical devices.
Medical professionals will be able to use BlackBerry services, like an enhanced-security version of BlackBerry Messenger, to communicate. The companies say BlackBerry’s QNX division, which developed the BlackBerry 10 operating system, is seen as a key part of diagnostic and monitoring devices in hospitals and home-care environments.
