SAN JOSE, Calif., September 5, 2018 – 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 or Vocera. "A single, integrated solution can go a long way to managing alerts and addressing the breadth and depth of hospitals' interruption fatigue challenges."
