Spok and Spectralink partner to empower mobile caregivers

March 6, 2018

Spok announced the strengthening of its long-term strategic partnership with Spectralink, a provider of enterprise mobility solutions.

Spok Care Connect, the company’s clinical communications platform, integrates with Spectralink’s medical-grade mobile devices, including the PIVOT clinical smartphone, to deliver critical information and updates from colleagues and alert systems—such as nurse call and patient monitoring—to mobile care teams quickly and securely. The result is enhanced clinical workflows, faster response times, dependable voice quality, and improved patient outcomes and experiences.

Spok and Spectralink provide a comprehensive solution that enables care teams to communicate quickly and securely and creates an enterprise-wide approach to the management, prioritization, and response to key patient events. This includes the ability to deliver clinical alerts from various hospital systems to the right people based on pre-determined rules, including escalated communications whenever necessary.

One example of the power of this partnership is at the Children’s Hospital Colorado, spanning 16 locations and consistently ranked as one of the best children’s hospitals in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. The hospital uses Spok and Spectralink in their facilities to support care team communications.

The optimized voice quality of Spectralink’s clinical solutions complements Spok’s applications to enable secure and uninterrupted communications among care team members. Sources of information can include nurse call, patient monitoring, bed management, EHR, lab, radiology, security, and infant protection systems, among others. Clinical information from multiple systems can be displayed to add relevant context and support informed care decisions.

Spok’s secure messaging solution, Spok Mobile, is supported on the Spectralink PIVOT clinical smartphones, and Spok clinical alerting solutions support message integration with the Spectralink’s 84-Series and PIVOT 87-Series devices.
