Inc.

SPOK) and the global leader in enterprise critical communications, today
announced an ongoing partnership with Progility Technologies, an
Australia-based enterprise integrator of unified communication

solutions integrate with existing workflows and enable hospitals to

clinicians who need to act on it.

“Our goal is to put the patient at the center of communications, giving
clinicians the technology necessary to focus on quality outcomes, and
for the organization to focus on increasing patient satisfaction,” said
John Jordan, Spok’s regional vice president – APAC. “We are excited to
be partnering with Progility to help hospitals across Australia do just
that.”

Spok and Progility have recently worked together on a number of
healthcare clinical alerting projects across Australia. By automatically
sending critical alerts from hospital systems such as nurse call and
patient monitoring to staff’s mobile communication devices, hospitals
have been able to improve staff productivity and workflow, as well as
patients’ comfort and safety.

“We are proud to partner with Spok in helping hospitals evolve their
approach to clinical messaging as they move their technology strategy
from having multiple and disjointed systems, to a single platform,” said
Campbell Johnston, Progility’s chief executive officer. “The more easily
information can flow among clinical systems and caregivers, the better
the patient care can become.”
