Vocera Unveils Key Secure Messaging Platform Enhancements

Stocks in this article: VCRA

SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Vocera Communications, Inc. (NYSE: VCRA), the leading provider of integrated, intelligent communication solutions for mission-critical environments in healthcare, hospitality, energy, retail and other mobile work environments, today announced significant enhancements to its secure messaging platform. Already industry recognized for delivering reliable, HIPAA-compliant critical pages, text messages, alarms and alerts, the new Vocera Messaging features ensure unparalleled mobile workflow efficiency that legacy communication structures cannot provide.

A 2013 Ponemon Institute study reported that pagers and outdated technologies are costing U.S. hospitals $8.3 billion annually in decreased clinician productivity and increased patient discharge time. Vocera Messaging eliminates this communication uncertainty and inefficiency by securely sending and receiving important messages from smartphones, including: iPhone®, iPad®, BlackBerry® and Android™, a web-based console, or through integrated third-party clinical systems.

Key Vocera Messaging improvements include:

  • On-Call Scheduling—allows system administrators to modify and communicate automatically both full and partial shift schedules and "on call" status to clinicians using smartphones.
  • Improved Smartphone Clients—expands accessibility to iPad clients while improving usability for all smartphone users through customized alert tones, a Do Not Disturb mode and subsequent override function, as well as support for user profiles and photos.
  • Improved Web Console—simplifies navigation for physicians and nurses while allowing users to receive alerts on their smartphone or Vocera Communication Badge.
  • Server Enhancements— allows users to page entire Vocera group distribution lists and integrates Vocera Messaging, Vocera Voice and email functions.

"The secure delivery of critical alerts is a chief concern for hospitals as they adapt to physicians' and nurses' evolving use of mobile devices," said Chris Buckley, vice president, product management of Vocera. "Our newly released capabilities not only ensure additional integration and a more user friendly experience for hospital staff, but guarantee ease of mind for system administrators."

"Holzer Health System has been relying on Vocera to make our delivery of care a seamless one both inside and outside of the hospital, regardless of the communication device," said Kevin Waller, director of communications for Holzer Health System. "We are extremely pleased to see these new enhancements in this latest version of the messaging solution. It's obvious that Vocera listens to its customers because the latest features incorporate our feedback and requirements, which in turn, enable us to provide better care to our patients."
