2017 Spok Innovation Award

We invite you, our customer, to submit the unique or innovative ways you are using your Spok® solutions. We’re looking for unique stories that go beyond standard communications and messaging.

For example, operator console solutions are designed for processing calls, critical alerting solutions send messages from alerting systems to mobile devices, and emergency notification solutions are primarily used for notifying code teams in hospitals. But we’ve heard a few creative applications outside the norm, and our curiosity is piqued. Is your organization using Spok solutions in a creative and innovative way? If so, we want to hear about it!

The 2017 Spok Innovation Award winners will be selected by a panel of judges composed of healthcare leaders outside of Spok and announced during Connect 17, October 15–18 in New Orleans.

Learn more about a previous winner’s innovative use of Spok solutions.
