communication and workflow solutions, announced today that the
Department of Defense (DoD) has awarded a Single Award Task Order

The SATOC is a contracting vehicle that outlines the terms and

enhance mobility through greater responsiveness and more bedside care,
DHA is improving the quality of care it delivers to the nation's
military family worldwide," said Travis Kuykendall, GMP executive vice
president.

The SATOC process is used by federal agencies to simplify and expedite
purchasing within the Military Health System. GMP was chosen to be the
sole provider of the Vocera wireless hands-free communication
system.

"Vocera is proud to be the provider of hands-free communication systems
to the DHA," said Brent Lang, president and CEO at Vocera. "Earning this
contract is an impressive accomplishment and required the Vocera system
meet several stringent federal requirements for security and
interoperability. Having this contract in place will streamline the
purchasing process with the DHA."

The Vocera communication system is the standard across U.S. Army Medical
Command (MEDCOM) facilities worldwide. Proven to help care teams reduce

more than 140 operational and clinical systems, including electronic
