Vocera Celebrates the Year of the Nurse and Midwife

We celebrate nurses and midwives – in 2020 and every year. We value you, your work, and all you give to those you care for. Together with our 51 nurses, we celebrate YOU.

The World Health Organization has designated 2020 as the Year of the Nurse and Midwife in honor of the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth. We’ve designed this online experience to lift up the voices of nurses everywhere.

Amid complexity and chaos, a trauma nurse misses a vital piece of information and a major mistake is set in motion.

In a single hospital unit or across an entire health system, the Vocera Platform helps you bring care together by unifying care teams, priorities, and information around the patient.

Jen easily determines what to prioritize next and the patient stays at the center of the care team’s focus. It’s a busy afternoon for Jen and her wearable, hands-free Smartbadge.
