BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) (TSE:BB) has launched its first app in the healthcare category for doctors and nurses who use smartphones. BlackBerry phone users will now be able to run apps developed by Los Angeles-based NantHealth, a healthcare company headed by billionaire Patrick Soon-Shiong.

The app is expected at the beginning of next year, according to both companies. On a joint phone interview to Bloomberg, both Chen and Soon-Shiong confirmed that there are more applications lined up as well. BlackBerry CEO John Chen has mentioned previously that healthcare is a focus for the company. Initially, under the deal with NantHealth, the company will connect doctors’ BlackBerry smartphones with NantHealth systems that will scrutinize tumors and recommend treatment options.
