Connecting Care Teams at Parkview Health System

Solution

Parkview Health System needed to improve inefficient and inconsistent clinical communication methods and automate its barcode medication administration (BCMA) system to improve the patient and staff experience.

Using Vocera Edge:

  • Nurses can securely access patient data from the MEDITECH electronic medical record (EHR) at the point of care and write back directly to the patient record.
  • The organization automates its BCMA system to ensure that the right person is receiving the right medication or service at the right time.
  • Physicians can easily locate and communicate with the care team members supporting their patients.

Satisfied clinicians empowered with tools to help them provide safer, higher-quality and more efficient care translates to a positive patient experience. The impact Vocera Edge has had on our organization is significant.
