Healthcare Listener—Remotely Manage Mobile Devices in Healthcare

The Casper Suite now includes the ability to automatically send remote commands to mobile devices in the healthcare industry using the Healthcare Listener. The Healthcare Listener is a secure service that receives ADT messages from a healthcare management system. When the Healthcare Listener has received an ADT message, the JSS interprets the message to automatically send remote commands to mobile devices. As of the Casper Suite v9.97, the remote command that is automatically sent to a mobile device is the Wipe Device remote command. (For more information about the communication process of the Healthcare Listener, see the Healthcare Listener Communication Knowledge Base article.)

You can use the Casper Suite to enable and configure the Healthcare Listener after an Infrastructure Manager instance is installed.
To access this feature in the JSS, navigate to Settings > Computer Management > Infrastructure Manager Instances > Click the Infrastructure Manager instance that is hosting a Healthcare Listener.

For more information about the Healthcare Listener, see the Installing and Configuring the Healthcare Listener technical paper.
