SPRINGFIELD, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 10, 2015--
Spok, Inc. today announced that representatives will demonstrate the
company’s innovative solutions for clinical mobility and workflow
improvement at the 101st annual meeting of the Radiological Society of
North America (RSNA) to be held Nov. 29 to Dec. 4 in Chicago.
“Healthcare organizations are seeking ways to become more efficient in
delivering high-quality care, and we offer critical communication
solutions that can help them, especially in the field of radiology,”
said Vincent D. Kelly, chief executive officer of Spok Holdings, Inc.
“Our solutions can speed the communication of critical test results and
also provide secure messaging, improving clinician workflow and patient
Spok expects its critical
test results management (CTRM) and secure
text messaging solutions to be a popular topic of conversation
during RSNA. The company’s CTRM solution delivers fast notifications to
providers, and allows radiology departments to confirm results are
received by viewing the CTRM dashboard’s audit trail. Another important
benefit is the solution’s integration with a patient’s electronic
medical record (EMR) because it closes the communication loop on the
status of results. The Spok CTRM solution handles all acuity levels and
helps emergency department physicians identify normal results sooner for
faster patient discharge. Additionally, it allows radiologists to note
incidental findings that may require further attention or follow-up
care. The solution can also benefit other departments that depend on
fast, efficient communication including cardiology and lab.
Secure text messaging is another area of interest for many radiology
professionals. The convenience and efficiency of communicating via
mobile devices is well known, yet the healthcare environment presents
special challenges because of the need for communications to be HIPAA
“Many physicians and clinicians are looking for a way to communicate
sensitive information securely, particularly when it comes to test
results,” said Kelly. “The Spok Mobile® secure texting app
allows users to easily share test results or other protected health
information via mobile phones to speed care coordination.” The app can
link to a hospital’s full electronic directory of contact and on-call
information and enables users to send messages, images, and even
videos to smartphones and other devices.
RSNA is celebrating its 101st year as the radiology industry’s leading
forum for education, networking, and collaboration. More than 50,000
industry professionals from around the world attend this event every
year seeking the latest research and technology. Spok representatives
will be demonstrating CTRM and secure texting solutions in Booth 3119 in
the South Building of McCormick Place, Hall A.
