Reading time ( words)

Vocera Communications, Inc., a recognized leader in clinical communication and workflow solutions, introduced its new cloud-based clinical communication and collaboration (CC&C) solution for smartphones called Vocera Edge. Designed for the cloud, Vocera Edge enables healthcare systems to get the most out of their electronic health record (EHR) investments, while empowering nurses, physicians, and other care team members by delivering meaningful information at the point of care. The software as a service (SaaS) solution enables Vocera to extend its market reach, broaden physician use cases and adoption, and deepen EHR integrations to support patient-centric workflows.

“Vocera Edge is the ideal CC&C solution for any clinic, hospital, or health system making investments in smartphone-centric communication to complement their EHR system,” said Brent Lang, Chairman and CEO of Vocera. “Our goal is to offer customers choices for how they purchase and deploy our solutions. This secure and robust solution is a natural extension of our strategic vision and is particularly well suited to match the speed and scale of each organization’s needs to improve patient care, safety and experience.”

“Two-way communication between Vocera Edge and the hospital’s EHR makes it seamless for clinicians to complete documentation and manage all patient-centric communication right from their smartphones,” said Steve Shirley, Vice President of Information Technology and Chief Information Officer at Parkview Medical Center.

Interoperability between Vocera Edge and EHRs helps clinicians easily close the loop on patient-centered workflows, including positive patient identification, specimen collection, fall risk assessments, digital checklists, and more. Secure messages, voice calls, alerts and alarm notifications are consolidated with contextual, task-based information and presented by Vocera Edge to help mobile clinicians make real-time decisions and provide safe, efficient, and effective care.
