They will be provided with a BlackBerry Passport that can display more info than most other mobiles due to it’s shape and screen size.
Patrick Soon-Shiong of NantHealth said “The proprietary NantOmics Cancer Genome Browser enables clinicians for the first time to investigate a tumour genome from the full three billion bases down to the single-base level in real-time, thanks to the power of the NantOmics supercomputing infrastructure.”
BlackBerry’s John Chen added “BlackBerry’s partnership with NantHealth illustrates how the mobile security and collaboration technology we are known for can be reimagined to create revolutionary applications across a variety of industries. BlackBerry technology has proven itself secure, reliable and powerful enough to be counted on in life-and-death situations. Its innovative form and functionality make BlackBerry Passport an ideal addition to a doctor’s medical kit.”
