SPRINGFIELD, Va. (July 26, 2016) – Spok, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Spok Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: SPOK) and the global leader in enterprise critical communications, today announced that key executives will be participating in several upcoming healthcare events. These include Becker’s Hospital Review Annual CIO/HIT + Revenue Cycle Summit, July 27 to 28 in Chicago and Spok Connect Chicago on Sept. 15. In addition, President Hemant Goel will introduce the keynote speaker at the CHIME 16 Fall CIO Forum, which takes place Nov. 1 to 4 in Phoenix.
“Hospitals today are facing significant challenges when it comes to communication,” said Vincent D. Kelly, president and chief executive officer of Spok Holdings, Inc. “There is a need to exchange information quickly and securely with a mobile workforce, and at the same time comply with regulatory requirements.”
Added to the challenge is the evolving technology. “We hear from our customers that they are constantly dealing with the limitations of managing multiple systems across their organizations that aren’t designed to integrate. This means critical information such as staff contact details, on-call schedules, and important alerts aren’t always easy to access, which can affect patient care,” said Kelly.
At each of these industry events, Spok representatives will focus on how improved clinical messaging throughout the organization can strengthen patient outcomes. The Spok Care Connect® platform helps hospitals accomplish this with integrated solutions across patient floors, in the call center, and in lab and radiology areas. These solutions include on-call scheduling, web directories, clinical alerting, and secure text messaging in addition to operator consoles and paging.
