PERTH, Australia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 6, 2015--
Spok, Inc. today announced that it has partnered with Thailand-based
medical distributor Xovic to enable healthcare organisations to improve
efficiency and safety with better staff communications. Through this
partnership, Xovic distributes Spok’s clinical
alerting and secure
smartphone messaging solutions to hospitals in Thailand.
Spok and Xovic help improve staff efficiency and patient safety by
quickly, accurately, and securely delivering patient monitoring alarm
notifications and critical test results to hospital staff’s smartphones.
For example, the Spok clinical alerting solution integrates with the
heart monitor to send a message with the room number and type of alert
to the patient’s on-duty caregiver if vitals reach a dangerous or
critical level. With the Spok Mobile® secure smartphone messaging app,
these notifications can be sent securely to clinicians’ smartphones,
allowing the hospital to speed response and provide top-notch care.
“We are excited to work with Xovic to help Thailand hospitals enhance
their communication and patient response capabilities,” said John
Jordan, Spok’s regional vice president – APAC. “With an increasing
number of clinicians relying heavily on smartphones, it’s an excellent
opportunity to use these devices to exchange patient information quickly
