Stocks in this article: VCRA

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Vocera Communications, Inc. (NYSE: VCRA), the leading provider of integrated, intelligent communication solutions for mission-critical workflows, today announced the results of an analysis performed at Genesis Health System. At the conclusion of the case study, Genesis Health System showed improved responsiveness, accuracy and overall patient care following the integration of Vocera's wireless communication system with Cerner's electronic health record (EHR).

The integrated solution enables notifications of stat orders and other critical information from Cerner to be sent directly to care team members on their Vocera devices, significantly reducing delays in communication. Vocera provides a comprehensive wireless communication system, including the hands-free Vocera Badge, and smartphone applications for Apple iPhone®, Android™ and Cisco® phones.

"The combination of audible alerts, delivery of text messages, and the ability to review messages makes it easy for the right message to reach the right person at the right time in the right context – so each stat order is carried out in an accurate and timely manner," said Shirley Gusta, IT manager of client services for Genesis Health System. "Integrating our processes with Vocera has improved our workflow so much that orders are sent within 10 to 30 seconds of physicians placing them, and they can be carried out nearly instantaneously. Plus, it provides guaranteed communication that can be reviewed after the fact."

Named "Most Wired" by Hospitals and Health Networks magazine for 10 straight years, Genesis has implemented Cerner's Millennium EHR throughout its operations, and is seeking additional ways to leverage the integration between Cerner and Vocera to optimize key clinical workflows.

"From faster stat order responses to shorter hospital stays for patients, Vocera empowers customers like Genesis Health System with secure, integrated and intelligent communication solutions that deliver predictable outcomes," stated Chris Buckley, vice president, product management, Vocera. "Integration with key clinical systems is essential in optimizing a hospital's communication and workflow. We are proud that Genesis recognized Vocera as a crucial part of their goal to continuously improve patient care, and as a way to get even more out of their Cerner investment."
