Bittium SafeMove for healthcare

Today´s healthcare sector is facing increased pressure to improve patient care with ever diminishing resources. It is clear that to achieve this goal the efficiency of every care worker needs to be improved. An increasing trend within healthcare organizations is to provide quality care in the home rather than in hospitals or medical centers which can lead to reduced hospital admissions among other benefits.  In order to provide good home care the mobile care worker must have access to patient records and other back office services. Providing home care workers with technology such as laptops and tablets with remote access is seen as a key enabler.  

This raises the question, how do you provide mobile care workers with technology that is both easy to use and sufficiently secure?  Complicated logon procedures involving manual tokens, patchy cellular network coverage and frequent re-authentications due to network glitches can frustrate the most tolerant care worker. Introducing mobile technology in the care process often requires a culture change. A solution that is too complex to use often leads to a lack of adoption by care workers, who prefer to stick to their existing methods rather than embrace the new mobile working practices. The end result is that the anticipated benefits are not realized. So what is the answer?

With a long experience within the healthcare IT sector, Bittium understands that providing a simple user experience and rock solid security are critical factors in the success of mobile healthcare projects.  The Bittium SafeMove Mobile VPN solution helps healthcare organisations overcome the identified challenges and improve the efficiency of mobile care workers by simplifying secure remote access to critical clinical systems.  SafeMove removes the complexity and frustration of mobile working by:

  • Connecting the device securely to the office network and domain automatically when the device is switched on
  • Automatically choosing the best available network at all times from a cost or speed perspective, be it cellular, WiFi or Ethernet
  • Allowing secure use of all available networks such as home Wi-Fi, public Wi-Fi hotspots and guest networks
  • Maintaining a secure persistent connection over the best available network and seamlessly moving between networks as needed
  • Reliably handling intermittent connections ensuring that on-going work is not lost during network outages
  • Persisting the VPN session as the device is put into standby


Bittium SafeMove helps mobile care workers to use existing desktop applications such as patient record systems, email and collaboration tools in a mobile capacity. In fact, it allows full access to all vital organisational information systems that are available when in the office. A mobile care worker can bring his full library of information with him to where they are needed most, that is, wherever the patient is.

With Bittium SafeMove, mobile care workers and health care professionals do not have to worry about the complexities associated with mobile devices, networks and security.  They are connected, their information is safe and they can focus on their work, whether it is remote consulting, patient rounds, home care, emergency response or any other important task.

Bittium SafeMove is tested and proven with NHS smart card and NHS applications such as SystemOne Electronic Patient Record and NHS Mail.

Bittium SafeMove for utilities

A constant high-quality connection is a key factor in efficient remote access. This is true for business laptop remote working, but even more so in utility applications, such as work scheduling etc. Working in remote locations, often in hostile and challenging environments with limited wireless coverage can frustrate even the most tech savvy employee, resulting in lost time and productivity. Sound familiar?

Based on a long experience with remote access solutions, we at Bittium understand not only the needs of field engineers, but also the key challenges that companies face when mobilising business processes, such as:

  • How do you maintain control of your remote workforce when they are away from the office?
  • How do you ensure end-users can utilise all connectivity opportunities AND still guarantee data-integrity over all these (unknown) networks?
  • How do you ensure that users automatically utilise the most cost effective network according to your own definition?
  • How do you ensure that your users always have a seamless and persistent connection?
  • How do you ensure that your chosen technology does not compromise end-user experience and thus productivity?


If you have experienced some of these challenges at your work environment, we would be happy to help you to solve the problems. With Bittium SafeMove Mobile VPN, all field service personnel can enjoy hassle-free, zero-click access to the best available network wherever their work takes them. Once connected, moving from one network to another is transparent and requires no user involvement whatsoever. Workers need only focus on their work and not on connectivity issues.
