SAN JOSE, Calif., January 7, 2019 – Vocera Communications, Inc. (NYSE:VCRA), a recognized leader in clinical communication and workflow solutions, today announced the launch of a new category of wearable communication devices that enables clinician agility and accelerates patient care. The Vocera Smartbadge combines smartphone usability with the hands-free freedom of the Vocera Badge to redefine healthcare communication – again.

"Vocera has been on a mission to improve the lives of patients, families and care teams for more than 18 years; and based on customer feedback, we have thoughtfully designed a sleek, light-weight, wearable, and intelligent device that will make it even easier for care teams to communicate and collaborate," said Brent Lang, president and CEO of Vocera. "The new Smartbadge is purpose-built to leverage the full software capability of the expanded Vocera Platform – voice calling, messaging, clinical alerts and alarms, and more – with its larger, touch-screen display."

THE (LEADER) IN MEDICAL IMAGING TECHNOLOGY SINCE 1982. SALES-SERVICE-REPAIR

Special-Pricing Available on Medical Displays, Patient Monitors, Recorders, Printers, Media, Ultrasound Machines, and Cameras.This includes Top Brands such as SONY, BARCO, NDS, NEC, LG, EDAN, EIZO, ELO, FSN, PANASONIC, MITSUBISHI, OLYMPUS, & WIDE.



The biggest advantage of the new Vocera Smartbadge over earlier versions of the wearable communication device is the size of the 2.4" touchscreen, which enables clinicians to receive and read notifications with more patient context. For example, a nurse who receives a sepsis alert can see the patient room number, plus the patient's name, age, and vital signs. The larger screen also enables clinicians to view contact lists, as well as read and send text messages right from their Smartbadge.

While the device's screen is larger than the original Vocera Badge, the new Smartbadge is still small, lightweight, wearable, and ideal for busy clinicians needing their hands free to provide patient care. Improved microphones and speakers enable high-quality audio while communicating with colleagues in both hands-free and hand-set mode. A new, dedicated, one-touch panic button is designed to make it faster and easier for staff to get help in emergency situations. Additionally, the Smartbadge boasts extended battery life, USB charging and headset ports, and a durable and water-resistant design.

"The Vocera Smartbadge is a gamechanger for healthcare and will enhance the way care teams connect, collaborate and provide care to patients," said Tom Stafford, Vice President and CIO at Halifax Health. "I am impressed by how the Smartbadge is still small and lightweight even with a larger notification screen, which is also now a touchscreen. Vocera really listened to its customers to design this new device that meets all the mobile communication needs of nurses, physicians and other team members."
