Motorola and Vocera to deliver communications services

To improve collaboration, increase patient safety and provide more attentive care

By CBR Staff Writer

Motorola and Vocera have signed an agreement to jointly deliver services that combine the Vocera communications experience and a variety of Motorola enterprise handheld devices to deliver improved healthcare at the patient’s bedside.

According to Motorola, the agreement is expected to enable healthcare staff to utilize the Vocera communications system on Motorola’s Enterprise Digital Assistants (EDA) and voice-over-wireless LAN smartphones to improve collaboration, increase patient safety and provide more attentive care.

Vivian Funkhouser, principal of Global Healthcare Solutions Group at Motorola Enterprise Mobility Solutions, said: By extending the Vocera client onto Motorola’s voice-capable devices, medical staff can stay connected, quickly access electronic medical records, reduce the chance for medical errors, and spend more time taking care of patients.

Brent Lang, president and COO of Vocera, said: Through this agreement with Motorola, we are expanding the Vocera platform to a range of enterprise devices to meet the increasingly complex communication needs of the healthcare industry. With these choices, the wearable Vocera badge, the Vocera software client for the Motorola EDAs, and the new Vocera Smartphone, we are bringing the Vocera experience to new groups of in-building mobile workers.
