Unify Care Teams

Address Mandates for Safety and Efficiency

The frustration and inefficiency of siloed, fragmented communication are well understood by care teams: Communication dead ends. Page-and-wait toil. Alarm and interruption fatigue. Not knowing who is contacting you or why. It all puts patient safety at risk.

A strategy for replacing pagers and siloed text messaging apps must address clinical communication in a holistic, consolidated way, making it easy for people to find each other and connect instantly inside or outside the hospital.

Unify Care Teams

Customer Story Summary: Niagara Health

Niagara Health needed a solution to help unify clinical communications across its five hospital sites. It wanted to provide physicians, nurses, and other members of staff with a standard means to communicate.

“We were using pagers, VoIP phones, and other disparate communication methods to get ahold of each other prior to Vocera,” said Chuck Quigley, Transformation Director at Niagara Health.

20% reduction in number of people injured in aggressive incidents

One important way the healthcare provider uses its Vocera system is to safeguard staff and patients. After deploying Vocera technology systemwide for staff duress calls, the number of people injured in aggressive incidents has decreased by 20%.
