November 10, 2015 — Spok Inc. announced that representatives will demonstrate the company’s solutions for clinical mobility and workflow improvement at the 101st annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Nov. 29-Dec. 4 in Chicago.

Spok expects its critical test results management (CTRM) and secure text messaging solutions to be a popular topic of conversation during RSNA. The company’s CTRM solution delivers fast notifications to providers, and allows radiology departments to confirm results are received by viewing the CTRM dashboard’s audit trail. Another important benefit is the solution’s integration with a patient’s electronic medical record (EMR) because it closes the communication loop on the status of results. The Spok CTRM solution handles all acuity levels and helps emergency department physicians identify normal results sooner for faster patient discharge. Additionally, it allows radiologists to note incidental findings that may require further attention or follow-up care. The solution can also benefit other departments that depend on fast, efficient communication, including cardiology and lab.

Secure text messaging is another area of interest for many radiology professionals. The convenience and efficiency of communicating via mobile devices is well known, yet the healthcare environment presents special challenges because of the need for communications to be HIPAA-compliant.

The app can link to a hospital’s full electronic directory of contact and on-call information and enables users to send messages, images, and even videos to smartphones and other devices.
