University Health System Taps Spok for Improved Communications

University Health System Taps Spok for Improved CommunicationsSpok says that University Health System (UHS), a nationally recognized academic medical center and network of outpatient healthcare centers in San Antonio, Texas, is now working with them on a highly important matter.

UHS turned to Spok, selecting its enterprise suite of communication solutions to improve communications.

The Spok on-call scheduling, secure texting, critical test results management, and hospital call center solutions will allow the rapidly growing organization to increase staff efficiency and enhance secure communications. As part of the rollout, UHS plans to provide the Spok Mobile secure texting app to 1,600 physicians and residents.

“Doctors constantly need to talk to each other,” said William Phillips, chief information officer at UHS. “In today’s healthcare environment the demand is growing for secure communication on a variety of devices. We needed a secured, protected communication solution for our physicians.”

Now all 1,600 physicians and residents will be connected via Spok Mobile, giving staff the ability to communicate and send patient data and messages securely.
