Timely Alert and Alarm Monitoring Notifications

Quality of care is increased by alerting nurses within seconds of a patient emergency. This keeps sentinel events to a minimum. Better care in the hospital means a happier, healthier patient at discharge.

Improving the communication of and response to critical patient monitoring and other patient care system alerts is just one of the ways Spok can help your facility improve care and satisfaction through the right communication solutions.

Fast Response to Alerts Saves Lives

Enhance the value of patient monitoring by sending system-generated alarm notifications directly to mobile nurses to ensure critical patient conditions are triaged quickly.

Spok® Messenger clinical alarm monitoring middleware integrates a variety of patient monitoring systems with your staff's wireless telephones, smartphones, voice badges, and/or pagers to improve response times and care. Alarms from related patient care devices such as infusion pumps, pulse oximeters and ventilators can be integrated as well.

"The management team is very pleased with how smoothly our communications flow. [Spok] Messenger is an integral part of the way we do business and helps us in our mission to continually strengthen patient care and safety."
