Unify Care Teams

Address Mandates for Safety and Efficiency

The frustration and inefficiency of siloed, fragmented communication are well understood by care teams: Communication dead ends. Page-and-wait toil. Alarm and interruption fatigue. Not knowing who is contacting you or why. It all puts patient safety at risk.

A strategy for replacing pagers and siloed text messaging apps must address clinical communication in a holistic, consolidated way, making it easy for people to find each other and connect instantly inside or outside the hospital.

Unify Care Teams

Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust

Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust (RNOH) decommissioned pagers in its new Stanmore Building, replacing them with Vocera clinical communication. Their deployment includes the Vocera Badge, Vocera smartphone app, and nurse call integration.

The hospital saw Crash team mobilisation time improve 84%, from an average of two minutes and five seconds to 20 seconds.

84% Improvement in Crash Team Response

“Vocera technology sped up communication and coordination during the peak of the COVID-19 crisis,” said Pauline Robertson, Head of Nursing for the Medicine and Therapies at RNOH. “It helped us provide seamless patient care without risking infection, and we were able to conserve precious PPE.”

Because the Vocera Platform is device agnostic, we were able to standardize clinical communication across our hospital campus with ease.

"The metric I like most is that 81% of the physicians agreed or strongly agreed that they’d like to continue using Vocera."
