Spok to modernize communications throughout Veterans Affairs hospitals

Dec. 7, 2018

Spok announced a continued strategic partnership with Standard Communications, a VA verified Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) and advisor for clinically focused solutions in the VA Healthcare System. The Spok Care Connect clinical communication and collaboration platform improves staff efficiency and veteran care while adhering to the standards set by the VA in its Technical Reference Model (TRM).

Together, Spok and SCI are helping a growing number of VA hospitals implement Spok Care Connect to modernize communications and deliver actionable information to the right clinician or staff member on VA approved mobile devices. This includes sending alerts from nurse call systems to the appropriate nurse and delivering radiology test results to the ordering physician to respond quickly to the patient’s needs. To keep patients safe and reduce patient elopement and wandering, real-time location system (RTLS) tracking notifications can also be sent to appropriate hospital staff when a patient begins roaming outside the established boundaries.

The Spok solutions enhance workflows for code processes, critical test results automation, and notification to on-call care teams, nurse call alarming for actionable events, and patient tracking, all of which help improve patient outcomes.
