Spok Improves Care Team Communication at Vail Health
Community health system expands use of Spok Care Connect® across its medical centers and clinics
“A huge benefit we have seen is that clinicians can act faster because Spok delivers the information they need, when they need it,” said Darrell Messersmith, chief medical information officer and chief information officer at Vail Health. “We have been able to consolidate disparate systems into a single system of action, which has ultimately improved patient care.”
Vail Health’s team has worked closely with Spok as a member of the Spok innovation partner alliance. The healthcare system made significant contributions to the development of the next evolution of Spok Care Connect, which Spok recently announced as the first-of-its-kind cloud-native enterprise communication platform.
“Vail Health is taking care team collaboration to the next level,” said Hemant Goel, president of Spok, Inc. “We are honored to join in their quest toward better patient outcomes and satisfaction, and look forward to continuing to work together to improve the way care is delivered.”
