27 May IBM Enterprise Apps & Apple Watch, About Time
Apple today updated its website for its enterprise app solutions to show that a few if the apps have been updated with Apple Watch Support. Last year Apple launched the MobileFirst for IOS solutions in partnership with IBM. The first three Apps to be accessible on the Apple Watch are Hospital RN which keeps nurses up to date on patients, Field Connect for field technicians and Incident Aware for public safety officials.
The Hospital RN app for iOS gives nurses the power to spend less time tracking down information and more time caring for patients. It uses iBeacon technology to accurately identify patients by location so nurses can easily find their records and provide appropriate care. Push notifications on iPhone and Apple Watch alert nurses to review new patient requests, changes in lab status, safety alerts, and prioritized task lists for immediate action. And Apple Watch lets nurses quickly view notifications so they can stay more focused on patient care.
The Field Connect app is transforming the way field technicians do their job with powerful, data-driven information right on their iOS device. They can get up-to-the-minute details based on their location to help keep safety top of mind. Personalized training and safety tips are available on demand, empowering field technicians with even more ways to assess and mitigate risk factors. Push notifications provide late-breaking news on severe weather, outages, hazards, and crew member information. And with Apple Watch, field technicians can view important alerts, without stopping what they’re doing. The intuitive user interface on iOS makes it easy to get field teams up and running in no time.
With the Incident Aware app for iOS, public safety officials can increase their awareness of a situation as it unfolds, and make informed, safety‑conscious decisions. When an emergency call comes in, first responders can take action with a bird’s-eye view of the scene’s perimeter that includes GPS map data, the location of those involved in the incident, and live video feeds updated in real time. They can even access police records to calculate risk, letting other law enforcement stakeholders know where and when other first responders will appear. And in tight situations, public safety officials can receive urgent alerts right on Apple Watch.
