PERTH, Australia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 22, 2015--
Spok, Inc. today announced RK. Charitas Hospital is enhancing hospital
communications and patient care with Spok®
clinical alerting. The Indonesian hospital uses the solution to send
emergency notifications quickly to mobile caregivers’ Spokpagers
to speed response to time-critical patient situations. Spok was
introduced to Charitas through local partner PT Ayari Persada.
Charitas employs Spok’s effective wireless messaging solution to improve
emergency communications across the entire organisation. With emergency
call buttons located throughout the hospital, caregivers simply push a
button and the Spok clinical alerting solution sends a notification to
the appropriate staff member’s pager. Additionally, when a code blue
occurs, staff can pick up a nearby phone and dial into the Spok solution
to quickly initiate notifications to the right on-duty code team. The
alerts include the specific location of the emergency, which improves
response times by enabling staff to arrive at the right location without
spending time searching for the patient.
"We’re seeing a growing trend of Indonesian hospitals empowering
caregivers with more mobile communication tools, and Charitas Hospital
has emerged as a leader," said John Jordan, Spok’s regional vice
president – APAC. “Spok solutions’ ability to send informative messages
