Real-time situational awareness and analytics optimize workflows,
reduce interruption fatigue

Vocera
Communications, Inc.
 (NYSE:VCRA), a recognized leader in clinical
communication and workflow solutions, recently released a new analytics
solution that aggregates data about how and when care teams communicate.
Intuitive dashboards and reports from the analytics solution provide
holistic insight into the number of voice calls, texts, alarms and
alerts clinicians receive. This information can help hospitals and
health systems diagnose workflow trends, identify root cause of sentinel
events, and improve operational and clinical efficiencies.

Understanding the frequency and volume of alerts that clinicians receive
can inform the way communication workflows should be redesigned to
reduce alarm fatigue or improve response times. Vocera Analytics
augments the company's entire communication system, including the latest
version of Vocera Collaboration Suite. This smartphone application
provides real-time situational awareness about patient status, lab
results, cardiac waveforms, vital signs, and other relevant information
from the EHR and additional clinical systems. It also provides context
about care team availability, and routes alerts to clinicians who are
best equipped to respond.

"We are really excited about the next generation of Vocera technology,"
said David Augsburger, director of clinical informatics at Major Health
Partners, where virtually all physicians use Vocera technology to
communicate and collaborate. "Secure text messages and alerts with
real-time situational awareness will empower our care team members to
make informed decisions quickly."

Based on protocols set by the hospital, the Vocera system intelligently
prioritizes alarms and notifications, and routes them instantly to
specific care team members on their devices of choice inside or outside
the hospital. Each communication is paired with rich, patient-centered
context that augments clinical responses and treatment.

"Real-time situational awareness and analytics are powerful tools for
health systems striving to provide safe, efficient and compassionate
care, while also supporting staff well-being," said Brent Lang,
president and CEO for Vocera. "A single, integrated solution can go a
long way to managing alerts and addressing the breadth and depth of
hospitals' interruption fatigue challenges."
