SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Vocera Communications, Inc. (NYSE:VCRA), a recognized leader in clinical communication and workflow solutions, today announced that the Cleveland Clinic London will use the Vocera Platform to standardize care team communication across the hospital when it opens in 2021. The eight-story, state-of-the-art facility will boast the latest technology and exceptional talent from around the world. Nurses, physicians, consultants and other care team members will use the wearable, voice-controlled Vocera Smartbadge and the Vocera Vina smartphone application to quickly connect and collaborate on patient care.

“The Cleveland Clinic, and what we do to improve the lives of patients, is very special. It has a world-wide appeal, and London is a great place to showcase the compassionate, innovative models of care we offer,” said Deborah Small, Chief Nursing Officer, Cleveland Clinic London. “We have assembled and are recruiting very specialized caregivers who will form the most outstanding teams in global healthcare, and to support them and their great work, we are deploying best-in-class technology.”

The 185-bed facility near Buckingham Palace will be the Clinic's third international location and will focus on high acuity services, including heart and vascular diseases, neurosciences, orthopaedics, digestive disorders, and general surgery.

For several years, care teams at Cleveland Clinic hospitals in the U.S. and the Middle East have been using Vocera solutions to connect and collaborate. Because of this successful and trusted partnership, the health system chose to implement Vocera solutions in London. Purpose-built to leverage the full software capability of the Vocera Platform, the Smartbadge and customizable Vina app enable clinicians to communicate via voice, send and receive secure messages, manage alerts and alarms, and more. The mobile solutions provide relevant contextual information to help clinicians make informed decisions quickly. With the dynamic master directory of the communication platform, clinicians can easily reach colleagues simply by saying a name, role or group.

“We have an opportunity to build one of the most impressive hospitals in the world by investing in future-state technologies that are ahead of the curve in UK healthcare,” said Gareth Sherlock, Chief Information Officer, Cleveland Clinic London. “It is critical to have intelligent, integrated solutions that can be part of a connected ecosystem of innovation, people, processes and research on day one, and also to have the flexibility to expand as the health system expands.”
