Connect Loved Ones. With Ease.

Patient & Family Communication Solution

The Vocera Ease application provides hospitals the means to communicate in a convenient and secure way. Digital boards and templatized care-transition messages don’t do enough to calm anxiety. The Ease application provides an important bridge between the care team and family by sending one-way HIPAA compliant messages, photos, and videos. It integrates into workflow, reduces calls, and makes it easy for loved ones to provide feedback.

Communicate Securely

Vocera Ease is built from the ground up to support secure communication. Easily update a patient’s loved ones with HIPAA-compliant messages using unlimited multi-lingual templates, photos, videos, and two-way video conferencing. Clinicians can easily update families throughout the emergency department, surgery, ICU, and medical floors:

  • Scan a patient’s medical bracelet to enable sending of a one-way message or initiation of a two-way video conference with families located anywhere in the country.
  • Use two-way video to support care decisions and allow HIPAA-compliant, face-to-face communication when patients and families can’t be together.
  • Messages are encrypted end-to-end, and all updates are removed from the recipient’s device within 60 seconds of being viewed.
Orlando Health increased HCAHPS 6% on average for adult surgical patients who experienced Ease vs. those who did not.
Texas Children’s Hospital Perioperative Services team found that “information provided the day of surgery” increased from 87.5% to 96.7% between January to September 2016 [as reported on the Press Ganey Survey].
