SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Vocera Communications UK, Ltd. (NYSE:VCRA), a recognised leader in clinical communication and workflow solutions, announced today that the company’s Vocera® Engage solution is now available across the UK. The software solution, which enables multiple clinical systems integrations, workflow efficiency, and care team communication, is registered with the Medicines Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency.
Vocera software integrates with more than 120 clinical systems, including electronic health records, nurse call, cardiac monitors, ventilators, and many other systems. The solution supports clinical decisions by aggregating and prioritizing relevant information from multiple systems and sending contextual alerts, notifications or text messages to the right caregiver based on location, role, group or other patient assignment set up within the system. Multiple variables can be used to trigger actionable alarm and alert notifications, and to filter out non-actionable ones, helping reduce interruption and alarm fatigue.
“We are excited to offer Vocera Engage to healthcare facilities across the UK,” said Brent Lang, president and CEO of Vocera. “The solution will make it much easier for hospitals and clinics to connect clinical systems, information and people. We look forward to seeing Vocera Engage simplify care team communication and workflows to help improve the lives of patients and their families.”
