Vocera Communications platform
Platform for triaging patients in hospital parking lots, alerting care teams appropriately, and alerting response teams quickly

The Vocera Communications platform connects the people and information needed to deliver patient care. It includes clinical communication software, smartphones, wearable badges, and an alarm management system. Our mission is to simplify and improve the lives of healthcare professionals and patients while enabling hospitals to enhance quality of care and operational efficiency.

Vocera’s platform is crucial to managing the pandemic because it allows doctors, nurses, and other staff to efficiently communicate to manage patient care and large-scale hospital operations without exposing themselves to the virus.

  • Vocera is a highly scalable solution that can be used outside the hospital walls. It can be used to triage patients in the hospital parking lot and to alert care teams appropriately.
  • Vocera enables faster throughput and turnover, increasing capacity to treat people at a time when resources are strained, by alerting the right people quickly and in the right way. Message broadcasts can mobilize response teams rapidly, and the initiator can call by name, role or group, eliminating the need to know who specifically is on call at the time.
  • Vocera can be worn beneath personal protective equipment, or PPE, removing the chance that the device will carry the novel coronavirus, like a phone or pager would, and protecting doctors and nurses from contamination when they remove their PPE in order to communicate. This protects both them and their patients.
