MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 2, 2014--
Spok, Inc. today announced the latest release of its secure messaging
app, Spok Mobile™ version 4.0. Spok Mobile gives healthcare providers an
efficient, secure messaging platform to share images, videos, and text,
and make quick connections for better patient care. In July, USAMobility Wireless and Amcom Software came together under a single brand
identity, Spok. Following that announcement, the solution formerly
called Amcom Mobile Connect® is now Spok Mobile.
Spok Mobile continues to improve clinical communications by giving
providers fast access to the full staff directory and up-to-date on-call
schedules. The solution contains prioritized messaging capabilities,
full audit trails, and automatic escalations. Complete data encryption,
combined with ease of use and clinical workflow enhancements, make Spok
Mobile a compelling messaging solution for providers and Information
A key new feature, called Spheres*, lets users create multiple groups of
colleagues within the app, and is particularly useful for providers who
work at multiple locations or who need to communicate with other
providers in the community. Available for free from Apple and Android
app stores, the Spheres feature allows clinicians to try Spok Mobile as
a stand-alone messaging solution. Other features in the Spok Mobile 4.0
release include user interface (UI) enhancements for a more intuitive
experience, user profile enhancements, status settings that clearly show
if a provider is available, and a simplified registration process. Spok
