St George Hospital: Closing the Loop On Test Results
St George Hospital in Sydney, Australia, is using Spok solutions for Radiology result notification and web directory to improve clinician communications and patient care. The hospital wanted a system to allow Radiology to automatically communicate the report to the requesting doctor in addition to sending the report to the electronic medical record (eMR).
By sending all Radiology test results directly to the requesting clinicians’ smartphones, the Spok solutions help St George improve turnaround time for communicating the findings—thus accelerating patient treatment plans and care. St George’s director of radiology explains their need for a critical test results notification system and how the Spok solution works.
