Better Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases
Now more than ever, hospital care teams need a clear way of communicating so they can route and treat all patients safely. Vocera® has worked hard with hospital customers in forming new strategies that optimize clinical communication to reduce the spread of infectious disease and improve safety.
Hospitals are finding ways to reduce risk of infection. They’re creating protocols to isolate non-infected patients and staff from infected patients. They’re identifying safer ways to communicate with isolated patients. This guide covers how to:
- Communicate safely and efficiently while wearing PPE, with
hands-free, voice-controlledcommunication that is an essential part of the protective equipment care teams need.
- Reduce the chance of exposure to infection by facilitating safe patient flow, while also helping to increase capacity.
- Communicate safely with isolated patients while restoring the human connection between staff, patients, and families.

“...physicians responded faster when using the secure texting app compared to traditional pagers. They found the app reduced interruptions to patient care and enabled them to prioritise calls, messages, texts and alerts.”

“Since implementing Vocera, we no longer have communication delays due to the ‘page and wait’ scenario.”
