SPRINGFIELD, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 11, 2017--
Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Spok Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:
SPOK) and the leader in healthcare communications, today announced that
its Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Andrew Mellin, will be presenting "The
Healthcare CIO Perspective on Supporting Clinical Workflows" during the
Becker's Hospital Review 8th Annual Meeting in Chicago, April 17–20.
With almost 20 years of experience as a physician and healthcare
executive, Dr. Mellin has an extensive background in healthcare
information technology and the development of innovative clinical
solutions. He will be discussing key insights revealed by recent surveys
Spok conducted with healthcare leaders across the U.S. Dr. Mellin will
share how to turn these insights into actions, including how health
system leaders can connect the dots with workflow-driven communications
as well as best practices for involving the clinical teams in
communications-focused technology projects.
“The surveys revealed many of the challenges and opportunities that
health system leaders face to support clinical workflows with
communication and mobile strategies,” said Dr. Mellin. “Key to our
findings, we noticed that successful organizations are involving
clinical leaders in these types of projects to ensure adoption and
desired outcomes, while trying to balance the security needs of the
organization with end-user desires for ease of use.”
One of the surveys was administered by CHIME to more than 100 CIOs, who
responded to questions about their big-picture goals, the use cases
driving their mobile app selections, and the common workflows for
improvement. Spok explored the evolution of mobile strategies in the
other survey, which asked more than 300 healthcare professionals, across
the U.S., how their institutions handled everything from communication
and management policies to strategic goals.
Spok helps hospitals improve patient care and satisfaction by enabling
them to use their communication infrastructure for more meaningful,
secure, and timely information sharing. Spok offers a full suite of
solutions, called Spok Care Connect®, which integrates with existing
workflows in the hospital and enables the organization to deliver
information quickly and securely into the hands of the clinicians for
action—wherever they are and on whatever device they are using.
The Becker’s conference brings together hospital business and strategy
leaders to discuss the opportunities and challenges that face hospitals.
Dr. Mellin’s presentation will be on Tuesday, April 18.
