SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Vocera Communications, Inc. (NYSE:VCRA), a recognized leader in clinical communication and workflow solutions, today announced that three customers were selected to speak at the 2018 HIMSS Conference and Exhibition, March 6-8 in Las Vegas. During these HIMSS18 sessions, clinical and technology leaders from the U.S. and Canada will share how an integrated smartphone solution impacts clinical communication, how a chief experience officer drives next generation innovations, and how an IT department can improve staff resiliency with more collaboration, empowerment and trust.
In addition to attending these presentations, HIMSS18 attendees are invited to visit the Vocera Booth (#2824) to get a sneak peek at the latest version of the Vocera Collaboration Suite mobile application, which enables real-time situational awareness. Having real-time situational awareness empowers clinicians to make informed decisions quickly with actionable patient data (demographics, lab results, waveforms, vital signs, and other relevant data) at their fingertips. Last year at HIMSS, Vocera had recently announced its acquisition of Extension Healthcare. Now, members of the healthcare industry can get a closer look at how the strengths of these unified companies’ solutions are extending the power of the Vocera software and deepening the interoperability of the communication system. More information about this enterprise platform and these three educational sessions is available on the Vocera website. Regular updates and news from HIMSS18 will be featured on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
