Thousands of alarms and alerts sound in a hospital every day, yet The Joint Commission estimates that 85-99 percent of those alarms do not require immediate clinical intervention. As a result, care teams often suffer from alarm fatigue and become immune to alarms, which can have serious consequences. Vocera offers an alarm management solution that enables clinicians to quickly prioritize and respond to critical alarms based on contextual evidence, such as waveforms and vital signs, sent directly to their device of choice such as a smartphone, tablet or hands-free, wearable Vocera Badge.
Vocera Clinical Analytics works in conjunction with the Vocera Clinical Workflow Engine, providing hospitals with the evidence needed to improve their alarm management strategy. The data allows refinement of alarm filtering and escalation to reduce alarm fatigue, improve patient safety and enhance care team efficiency.
