Simplifeye, a company based in New York, has announced it is working with Apple device management provider Jamf to help mitigate the security of patient information on wearable devices.

The startup provides what it calls a ‘next generation cloud system’ which syncs with existing patient management software. Healthcare teams can see medical records on any device – in this instance, an Apple Watch, iPhone, and iPad.

Jamf, a founder member of the AppConfig enterprise app community, comes in through its mobile device management (MDM) software. As the case study explains, Simplifeye uses Jamf Pro to manage the iPhone devices tied to each Apple Watch.

“As dentists, we have a responsibility to guard the data of our patients, to guard that security very, very carefully,” said Dr. Gary Kay, a New York-based dentist. “So if we’re going to use any device, we have to make sure that it complies with the whole spectrum of HIPAA regulations.”

“Partnering with Simplifeye gives us the ability to help improve the experience patients have while at their clinic or hospital,” said Dean Hager, CEO of Jamf in a statement. “We’re actively working to improve healthcare by providing a solution that allows caregivers to put patients first, so working with Simplifeye to accomplish that with wearable technology is a great fit.”

Simplifeye had previously secured $3 million, as reported by TechCrunch, back in March. Jamf added it was ‘excited to be a part of the movement that’s transforming the healthcare industry with technology.’
