Vocera and Zebra Technologies to Provide Enterprise-Class Clinical Communication Solution

Vocera and Zebra Technologies Corporation announced that the Vocera Collaboration Suite will be available on Zebra's MC40-HC [1] Android mobile computer. Vocera is committed to delivering market leading communication solutions on a range of devices to meet the needs of mobile healthcare workers. Designed to withstand demanding healthcare environments, the rugged MC40-HC includes a barcode scanner for medication administration and mobile specimen collection. The MC40-HC is excellent for voice applications because of its enterprise-class Wi-Fi connectivity capabilities and ability to seamlessly integrate with the Vocera Communication System, electronic health records (EHRs), and other clinical system applications, making it an ideal Android solution for Vocera's installed-base of nearly one million users. The MC40-HC will be offered as a bundled solution with the Vocera Collaboration Suite to provide a complete, turnkey solution. The Vocera Collaboration Suite is a HIPAA-compliant clinical communication solution that includes voice communication to individuals and groups, secure texting and instant access to critical clinical data, alerts, and alarms, all of which leverage the intelligence of the Vocera Communication Platform.

Stillwater Medical Center Improves Workflow and Patient Experience with Integration of Vocera Communications, Inc.'s Electronic Health Record and Vocera Communication System

Vocera Communications, Inc. announced that Stillwater Medical Center improved care team collaboration and patient experience by integrating the Vocera Communication System with the hospital's computerized physician order entry (CPOE) system. This strategic solution enables most orders from the CPOE to be sent directly to staff wearing a Vocera Badge or other Vocera-supported client devices, streamlining workflow, improving response times, and reducing errors by eliminating handwritten orders. The previous workflow required a physician to write an order that was then placed into the electronic health record (EHR) by a secretary and subsequently sent to a designated printer in a specific department or area of the hospital. This process proved inefficient because the physical distance of the printer made it difficult for care team members to quickly obtain and fulfill order requests. Other challenges such as system failures and outages also led to delays in order delivery. The integration of the Vocera System with the EHR solved these communication breakdowns and improved patient care. Stillwater Medical Center also integrated its nurse call system with the Vocera System, enabling patient requests to be sent directly to the right member of the care team on their Vocera Badge, a hands-free voice controlled wearable device. One month after implementation, the medical center improved its Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey scores for staff responsiveness from 74% to 82.4%, and pain management satisfaction scores rose from 66% to 81.3%.

Vocera Introduces Vocera Clinical Workflow Engine

Vocera introduced the Vocera Clinical Workflow Engine to streamline integrations between the Vocera Communication System and clinical systems such as nurse call and electronic health records (EHRs). By integrating Vocera with these and other solutions, hospitals can automatically send an alert to the nurse assigned to a particular patient based on the intelligent workflow defined in the system, improving patient safety and reducing the noise and annoyance of broadcast alarms. Vocera's Clinical Workflow Engine eliminates the need for third-party middleware. It streamlines clinical workflows for voice, messaging, patient monitoring alerts and alarms, nurse calls, EHRs, bed management and other clinical systems. As part of the Vocera Communications System, this solution also reduces costs and the number of vendors required to support clinical workflows, simplifying care team collaboration. Using the Vocera Clinical Workflow Engine as the single source of information exchange improves accuracy and consistency within the communication data flow, and enables advanced workflow capabilities in reporting and analytics.
