Digital or smart hospital? Though these are not new ideas, they represent significant untapped opportunities for NHS organisations around the country. Dr Benjamin Kanter, Vocera’s Chief Medical Information Officer, he explains: “Despite it’s known importance, people often overlook the fundamental role clinical communication systems play in turning a digital hospital into a smart one. “Being digital – converting analogue processes into digital ones – does not by itself make a hospital ‘smart’. A digital hospital simply means that there is digital infrastructure.
Vocera empowers people in mission-critical environments to instantly connect via secure, mobile, integrated and intelligent communication solutions.
