The Rise of Clinical Communications: On the Call with Jason Stanaland, Spok

While documented resources will always account for a significant part of the information flow in healthcare, growing evidence indicates that information requests by clinicians will be met more often by their colleagues via mobile synchronous and asynchronous communications. 

As part of our “Countdown to HIMSS’16” series, we spoke with Jason Stanaland, Mobility Solutions Consultant, Spok (HIMSS'16 booth #4829). He described Spok's approach to establishing effective clinical communication systems and how the company's experience across multiple vertical markets provides special insights that are particularly important in healthcare.

Some of the subjects we discussed included:

  • the historical and contemporary challenges surrounding clinical communications;
  • the need to secure communications for both the organization and the end user;
  • how communication gaps between patients/consumers and providers/marketplace are eroding;
  • the potential of Big Data's impacts on the future of clinical communications.
