Spok, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Spok Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: SPOK) and the global leader in enterprise critical communications, today announced the availability of the T52 pager. The T52 pager supports communication with smartphones, pagers, handhelds, PCs, and other two-way devices, allowing care teams to stay connected regardless of the devices in use. With the enabled encryption service from Spok, the T52 is the only two-way pager on the market that supports secure messaging and helps healthcare organizations meet HIPAA compliance requirements.
“Hospitals realize that pursuing one device for all types of roles and communications is not practical,” said Vincent D. Kelly, president and chief executive officer of Spok Holdings, Inc. “A broad, flexible, and device-neutral communications infrastructure is the best foundation for swift, cost effective care coordination. With encrypted communication options, like the T52 and Spok Mobile secure text messaging app, healthcare organizations can support device preference, while ensuring HIPAA compliance.”
Spok has the exclusive rights to sell and service the T52, along with its one-way predecessor, the T5 pager. The T52 supports message encryption using the industry standard AES-128 encryption algorithm. Each device is programmed with a unique key. Messages are encrypted as they enter the Spok network and are sent over the air to the device, where they are decrypted for display to the user.
The T52 also has a user-friendly interface and an easy-to-read screen with up to six lines of text for longer messages. In addition to having a long battery life and display-lock security features, it offers users the ability to review message delivery receipts and to remotely wipe data from a lost or stolen device.
“With the T52, providers can send detailed messages containing protected health information in a secure manner and be confident that the message will be delivered,” said Kelly. “Pagers remain highly useful for clinical communications and a vital part of disaster preparedness due to the reliability of paging signals when cellular service is impaired. The addition of encryption capabilities only enhances their value.”
