"Achieving JITC certification demonstrates Vocera's ongoing commitment to assisting DoD healthcare facilities in their goal of providing the highest standard of care for active and retired military personnel and their families," said Gregg Young, vice president, Health Systems for Vocera Communications. "The Vocera system streamlines processes to allow care teams to provide the best patient experience which is critical to positive patient outcomes."

The Vocera Communications System is currently deployed in eleven DoD medical facilities. The Vocera System allows hospital staff to connect with critical hospital personnel and resources through voice commands, reducing time wasted looking up names or phone numbers or waiting for a response to a call for help.

Vocera's initial certification is valid through June 2015 (subject to the discretion generally reserved by JITC to identify issues that Vocera would have to address in the future). Vocera expects to apply for new JITC certifications in the future for new products and major releases.

Vocera technology has bridged our communication gaps – allowing instant hands-free voice calls, improving patient care coordination, and enhancing staff and patient safety by reducing response times.

Norman Bowman, Clinical Ward Administrator at Gateshead Health NHS Foundation Trust

The Vocera numbers speak for themselves, and they show this technology can dramatically reduce the time it takes to connect with a colleague and get a response. That has a real impact on the care we provide.

Adrian Plunkett, Paediatric Intensivist Consultant at Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Hospital

We have seen improvement in our communication across Emergency Care since implementing Vocera technology – staff can now connect with the right person on their first try.

Since implementing Vocera, we no longer have communication delays due to the ‘page and wait’ scenario.
