Connect 21 Virtual: See what you missed (and how you can still get access!)

This week we hosted Connect 21, our annual customer conference, which brought together hundreds of healthcare professionals including clinicians, IT experts, and contact center leaders.

Attendees of Connect 21 Virtual spent two days learning, networking, and consuming stellar content from their peers on best practices for communication in healthcare. We consistently hear the best part of Connect is the exchange of knowledge that takes place, and Connect 21 Virtual was no different.

What sessions drew the biggest audience? What did attendees have to say? Today, we’ll recap Connect 21 Virtual by the numbers. Plus, we’ll share how to revisit your favorite sessions, listen to ones you missed, or get access to all the great resources Connect 21 Virtual offered.

Connect 21 Virtual by the numbers  

1. The most attended session

Powerful results in the ED: How TidalHealth is using Spok tools to transform ED throughput

Join this session to learn how Spok and TidalHealth have come together to transform ED throughput – reducing ED boarding time by 44 minutes and overall ED length of stay (LOS) by 31 minutes. 

Chief Quality Officer and Physician Advisor at TidalHealth, Christopher Snyder, DO, shares his in-depth lessons learned during a workflow improvement project in the ED using Spok Go® as the primary communication tool for the care team to coordinate patient admissions.

Hear how the project led to improved communication between the ED physicians and hospitalists, which not only decreased wait times for patients but increased provider satisfaction. Snyder shares how TidalHealth overcame two key challenges: facilitating timely patient admissions and communicating timely information to the right provider at the right time through the right device, all while being HIPAA compliant.

2. The most engaging session

3 clinical workflows you can execute with Spok to improve patient outcomes

Clinical workflows are the key to efficient operations at any hospital or health system. Identifying and prioritizing communication workflows is critical to help support patient safety initiatives and improve patient outcomes. Attend this session with Spok experts to learn how you can perform a deep dive analysis of your current state workflows and identify areas of process improvement that result in better patient and staff outcomes. We examine three day-to-day activities on a granular level and identify processes for optimal efficiency and workplace productivity with Spok solutions in place. You’ll leave the session with practical advice on how to assess and improve your own clinical workflows.

3. Attendee feedback and comments

While we couldn’t meet face-to-face this year, the Connect 21 Virtual attendees still engaged with each other and gave session feedback during the two-day conference:

  • “Taking soo many notes…you got me engaged and at full attention :)”
  • “All sessions so far have been very informational. Great job!”
  • “Thanks Kim and Archie for your presentation on maintaining Spok solutions. This was needed guidance and reminder for me. Will be updating our system maintenance checklists to include some of your tips.”
