Spok announced the formation of its Physician Advisory Council and Nurse Advisory Council. The mission of these councils is to provide strategic guidance for the Spok Care Connect platform.
The councils explore a broad range of current and emerging healthcare trends, and examine the role of clinical communication, workflow coordination with electronic health records (EHRs), increasing patient engagement, and using analytics to improve outcomes.
The councils meet regularly to provide strategic insight and input on trends and opportunities in enterprise communications and technology advancements specifically for healthcare organizations. The councils also provide a forum for member networking and peer learning to enhance inter-professional practice. Members represent healthcare organizations including Duke Health, Emory Healthcare, Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin, Peninsula Regional Medical Center, UW Health, Vail Health, and Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) Health.
