SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 17, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vocera Communications, Inc. (NYSE:VCRA), the leading provider of intelligent, real-time communication and collaboration solutions for mission-critical mobile environments, celebrates its 15-year anniversary this week. Since its founding on February 16, 2000, Vocera has been at the forefront of enterprise-class technology that empowers care teams to reach the right person, at the right time, with the right information, on the right device, anywhere.
"The company has been like a child to me," said Vocera president and CEO, Brent Lang, one of the company's first 10 employees. "It's been remarkable to see how we evolved from a revolutionary idea inspired by Star Trek, to the award-winning industry leader it is today. Our employees come to work each day motivated by the knowledge that the work we do and the products we deliver are helping to save lives and improve the patient experience in hospitals around the world."
Vocera now serves more than 1,200 organizations worldwide in healthcare, hospitality, energy, and other mission-critical mobile environments, and is expanding its integration partners within the United States and internationally.
"Vocera's goal has long been to improve the lives of patients and caregivers, while humanizing the healthcare experience," said Lang. "Since the beginning, we have strived to do things the right way: treat people with respect, lead with passion, embrace innovation, think customer first, and drive for results. I'm excited about the long, successful life we have ahead of us filled with plenty of growth and development left to accomplish."
As mobile landscapes evolve, so does the company's intuitive communication offerings. Earlier this month, the company announced availability of Vocera Secure Texting, a cloud-based solution for the U.S. healthcare market to address growing initiatives for improving population health.
