Advisory / Notices

Why is Vocera acquiring Extension Healthcare?
Vocera is acquiring Extension Healthcare to create the most powerful healthcare communication and collaboration platform on the market, to improve the lives of clinicians, patients, and families.

Who is Extension Healthcare?
Founded in 2009, Extension Healthcare is known in the market for its clinical integration software solution Engage, which features an advanced clinical rules engine that allows unification of data from multiple sources simultaneously, prioritization of notifications, and sending messages with patient context to the right care team members on their mobile devices. The Engage platform allows clinicians to be away from the bedside while staying informed of their patients. As a result of faster care team response times and reduced noise, patients report higher satisfaction. Similarly, using information from location tracking systems, Engage helps reduce interruption fatigue and unnecessary alarms by detecting the presence of a nurse at the patient’s bedside. Extension Healthcare was founded in 2009 and is based in Fort Wayne, IN, with 160 employees.

Why did Vocera acquire Extension Healthcare?
Customers have expressed a need to bring together voice communication, secure messaging, alarm management, clinical system interoperability, and patient context in one simple application, on one platform. By coming together, the two companies will be able to meet this growing demand.

What are the overarching strategic benefits to Vocera, Extension Healthcare, customers and the industry?

• Better insight, better care: Get real-time patient context for more accuracy, less chance of error. Nurses receive only actionable notifications, helping to reduce alarm fatigue.
• Two proven leaders join together: Healthcare communication and collaboration + context-driven alarm management and event response.
• Most powerful platform: The best workflows; person-to-person, system-to-person.
• Simplest solution: One platform, one vendor.
• Everything you need: Real-time voice communication, secure messaging, alarms and event response, and clinical system interoperability empower clinicians to do their jobs better.

Vocera is the proven leader in healthcare communication and collaboration, and Extension Healthcare is the leader in alarm management and event response. The Extension Engage platform will operate seamlessly with the Vocera platform, bringing more value and capability.

Vocera and Extension Healthcare have collaborated many times and share more than 40 hospital customers across the United States, including medical centers within the Veterans Health Administration.

The strengths of the two companies and their solutions will deepen interoperability of the Vocera Communication Platform with many clinical systems, including electronic health records (EHRs), physiologic monitors, and biomed devices such as ventilators. It will also extend the scalability of the enterprise-class platform and enable stronger person-to-person and system-to-person workflows within a single system from a single vendor.
