To achieve their objectives of freeing up care team time to spend with patients and reduce ED admission times below 60 minutes, St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital (STEGH), replaced its overhead paging system with Vocera Voice and integrated Vocera with other technologies at the hospital, notably the Medworxx Bed Board bed optimization system (BOS). The BOS provides a data repository and graphical representation of all the beds in a hospital unit, and the status of those beds allowing rooms to be turned faster there, by getting patients admitted faster.
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.Victoria Sudron, Service Improvement Coordinator at North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Trust
