How Healthcare Can Benefit from BlackBerry QNX

How Healthcare Can Benefit from BlackBerry QNX

Healthcare systems around the world are facing pressures due to tightening budgets, growing patient expectations and demands, and rising global health expenditures. As these trends continue, the need for automation and connectivity is driving a new generation of medical devices that are technologically more complex and smart. Leading the advanced technology evolution is BlackBerry QNX, providing manufacturers with the foundational software needed to build safe, secure, and reliable medical devices.
BlackBerry QNX delivers foundational software that:

BlackBerry QNX delivers foundational software that:

  • Is safety-certified and has a secure microkernel architecture that is trusted by leading medical device manufacturers.
  • Is standards-based and works across safety and non-safety related systems and is scalable across medical device products and product lines and families.
  • Has adaptive partitioning and prioritization scheduling to help ensure critical processes get the cycles they need to complete tasks on time.
  • Enables granular security profiles and the ability to monitor and audit for system integrity.

Keep Your Medical Device Safe and Secure

Build with standards-compliant foundational software that can help accelerate certification of IEC 62304 up to Class C.

Ensure Reliability
Limit medical device down time and leverage temporal and spatial isolation mechanisms such as adaptive partitioning. Build on BlackBerry QNX microkernel architecture that has supported hundreds of millions of mission-critical systems for decades without failure.
Strengthen Cybersecurity
Leverage microkernel architecture designed with embedded security features. Use our experts to uncover software vulnerabilities in third-party and open-source components. And harden devices with anti-counterfeiting and product authentication cybersecurity solutions with PKI, AMS, and more.
Reduce Costs
Reuse application and driver code across devices and product lines without needing to maintain an open-source OS. Limit hardware costs by virtualizing multiple OSes on an SoC. And decrease development lifecycle with a pre-certified commercial OS.
