When Every Minute Counts – How Emergency Care Teams Instantly Connect Through Integrated, Intelligent Communications


There is no greater need for instantly connecting care teams than in a hospital’s emergency department. The ability to communicate directly with the appropriate clinician and ancillary staff can mean the difference between life and death. Vocera empowers hospitals with integrated, intelligent communications that connects physicians, nurses and patients through advanced voice and data technology to connect people and information using the device of their choice. Emergency Departments that leverage Vocera communicate on average 5 times faster than traditional methods. In this symposium, you will hear from ED clinicians how to leverage the Vocera platform to significantly improve response times, patient outcomes and overall satisfaction for staff and patients.
