Spok survey finds increase in mobility planning but gaps in critical infrastructure
Spok, a global leader in enterprise critical communications, today released the findings of their fifth annual mobility strategies in healthcare survey. The survey is designed to assess mobile workflow enablement progress and trends in hospitals across the country. More than 550 healthcare organizations responded to this year’s questions about mobile strategy documentation, bring your own device (BYOD) policies, communications infrastructure, and information security.
“The results this year provide empirical data to support what we hear directly from our customers,” said Vincent D. Kelly, president and chief executive officer of Spok Holdings, Inc. “The majority of hospitals and health systems are formalizing a mobility strategy, which helps define the goals and framework for all mobile-related projects.” This framework includes how to measure project goals, what integrations are necessary to meet those goals, as well as the details of what mobile devices will be supported.
