MedStar has seen a significant reduction in patient falls and falls with injuries after integrating the Qventus and Vocera solutions. In June 2018, the hospital reported a 13.5% reduction in cumulative fall rates. The successful falls prevention program inspired the MedStar team to expand the integration to a patient experience initiative focused on evaluating and improving nurse call response times.

There is great potential at MedStar and at other hospitals willing to accelerate change and transform clinical and operational workflows. Both the Qventus and Vocera solutions have helped hospitals decrease the rates at which patients leave without being seen in the emergency department. They have also helped increase on-time surgical procedures and elevate patient satisfaction scores, all of which impact financial performance.

"It is an exciting time in healthcare with endless opportunities for artificial intelligence and machine learning," said Brent Lang, president and CEO of Vocera. "The most advanced technology solutions are coming together at the right time to help hospital and health system leaders redesign the future of healthcare to deliver safer, more affordable care to patients."
