2021 Strategic Roadmap for the Real-Time Health System

In this report, Gartner outlines the benefits of the real-time health system and defines and prioritizes the technologies required to realize a complete real-time health system transformation. Vocera currently offers solutions that solve for:

  • Alarms and Notifications
  • Clinical Communication and Collaboration
  • Healthcare Interoperability
  • Care Team Collaboration
  • and more


  • Clinical communication & collaboration (CC&C) and interoperability are listed as high priorities for investment along with other technologies that simplify clinical workflows and improve situational awareness for optimal patient care.
  • Gartner advises against using EHR systems as a communication and workflow coordination tool. EHRs were designed as a repository of information, not a communication tool which makes finding and interpreting information cumbersome and unintuitive.
