The average clinician navigates among five or more devices and applications to communicate and collaborate during a shift. Fragmentation across infrastructure, devices, integration points, applications, and clinical workflows complicates the work of patient care and can affect patient safety and care quality.
Simplify the Work at the Point of Care Clinical communication and workflow are inextricably linked. If done effectively, one enables the other. Vocera Edge is a cloud-based clinical communication and collaboration solution for smartphones that enhances care team mobility and simplifies the work at the point of care through effective, reliable clinical communication and workflows.
With Edge, you can get more value from your EHR and bring the whole care team together, centered around the patient:
Nurses can document to the EHR while receiving filtered, prioritized alarm and task notifications.
Physicians can easily locate and communicate with the nurse and team members supporting their patients, saving time with each connection.
IT teams can simplify CC&C deployment and system administration by reducing the overhead required to scale with a cloud-based solution.
Using Edge, clinicians can securely access patient data from the EHR at the point of care and write back directly to the patient record through closed-loop, bi-directional integration in a single app. Edge provides a unified view of all clinical communications, workflow tasks, and digital checklists specific to each patient. Checklists can include health history, risk assessments, lab results, vitals, medications, and more.
View and manage schedules and availability status, making it easier to communicate with the right care team member at the right time. Send and receive broadcasts and messages with context. Access real-time patient information and up-to-date care team assignments by clicking within a secure message. Reach any role without needing to know names or numbers through integrations with your assignment systems and call schedules.
Enable nurses and physicians to focus on critical patient-care tasks by letting them set Edge to do-not-disturb mode and control their availability status. Ensure coverage by routing communication and notifications intended for an unavailable user to another user.
