DataXoom Launches Initiative Serving Fast-Growing Mobile Healthcare Workforce

Healthcare Companies Can Connect iOS and Android Tablets, Keep Track of Usage and Reduce Costs Dramatically

PLEASANTON, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/18/14 -- DataXoom Corp., a pioneer in mobile data services for businesses, has launched a new healthcare initiative targeting mobile, on-site, and in-home healthcare workers. DataXoom provides cellular data network connectivity for the tablets, mobile hotspots, and specialty devices used by mid- and large-sized businesses and runs on the nations' largest LTE, CDMA and GSM networks.

"We are seeing strong demand from healthcare companies as they deploy tablets and other mobile devices to remain connected to their mobile employees," said John Tantum, DataXoom's CEO. "With nearly 2 million people providing in-home and residential-community care, cellular network connectivity is essential for collecting and managing patient information, and for supervising this fast-growing workforce."

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, there are 1.9 million direct care workers in the U.S. DataXoom's new healthcare offering focuses on serving these mobile healthcare workers, which include home health aides, personal care aides, and certified nursing assistants.

"HIPAA compliance is a major expense for healthcare providers, and managing costs is a key focus," said Tantum. "DataXoom wireless services, including our LTE mobile network connectivity, can be an important element of a cost-effective and HIPAA-compliant solution."

DataXoom's healthcare offering includes special pricing and support designed for healthcare companies. With DataXoom, heath-related businesses can purchase 2 GB, 5 GB, or 10 GB plans where data is pooled across an entire account. Customers have access to the nation's fastest 4G LTE networks.

DataXoom also offers tablet-and-service bundles for healthcare companies, in which the lease cost of the device is packaged with the monthly data service. The enterprise pays a single, low price for each unit deployed. Other services, such as configuration, warranty, and repair services, can be added. Additionally, DataXoom's management platform provides administrators within an enterprise much greater control and visibility of their employees' mobile data devices.

DataXoom offers healthcare businesses a number of unique and important advantages:

  • DataXoom has no contracts or termination penalties.
  • DataXoom's mobile data pricing options include pay-as-you-go plans, 2 to 10 GB plans that pool across all users, and larger terabyte (TB) plans that can be customized for specific pricing requirements.
  • DataXoom's proprietary management platform allows an administrator to manage users through a single web interface across multiple underlying mobile networks. It provides user authentication, data limits, and alerts.
  • Existing devices (tablets, cellular modems, etc.) can often be re-used for DataXoom's service, or DataXoom can provide affordable new or refurbished devices. DataXoom has expertise in acquiring and delivering devices that are ready to use on its network.

Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/...
