News : Virginia Hospital Center Selects Spok’s Enterprise Communication Platform to Complement EHR
Springfield, VA, USA, March 13, 2018 -- Spok, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Spok Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: SPOK) and the global provider in healthcare communications, announced that Virginia Hospital Center has chosen Spok Care Connect(R), a unified healthcare communication platform, to speed response times and improve clinical workflows and quality outcomes. Virginia Hospital Center is a 394-bed community-based teaching hospital and member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network serving the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area.
"Two years ago, we decided to invest in a new EHR and now, interoperability is a top priority for us," said Michael Mistretta, vice president and chief information officer at Virginia Hospital Center. "We started looking for an integrated communication solution to complement the benefits of our EHR and after comparing Spok to other options on the market, we realized no one offered the breadth of capabilities. Without Spok we’d be required to work with several vendors and multiple systems, with no guarantee of achieving the same results."

"Spok Care Connect’s ability to add detailed clinical information to an event with data from the EHR drives faster, more efficient decision-making for providers," said Hemant Goel, president of Spok, Inc. "We’re looking forward to providing the solutions Virginia Hospital Center needs for a modern technology infrastructure."
