First Vocera Smartbadge Delivered to Long-time Healthcare Customer

Vocera Communications, Inc. (NYSE:VCRA), a recognized leader in clinical communication and workflow solutions, announced today that Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital in Albany, Ga., received the first shipment of Vocera Smartbadges to improve clinician agility and accelerate patient care. Vocera recently announced the new mobile device, which launched a new category of wearable communication. The Smartbadge combines smartphone usability with the hands-free freedom of the Vocera Badge, which is used in nearly 1,600 healthcare facilities around the world.

“We have been using Vocera technology for more than 10 years and are thrilled to be the first hospital to receive the Smartbadge,” said Evelyn M. Olenick, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, Senior Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital. “Our clinicians are looking forward to having more contextual patient information at their fingertips with the new, larger touchscreen while still being able to communicate hands-free.”

Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital is one of the busiest and most advanced hospitals in the Southeast. The 691-bed teaching hospital is nationally recognized for clinical excellence and innovative community health programs focused on providing the best possible patient care for more than 107 years. In conjunction with hands-free communication, the hospital uses Vocera technology for secure text messaging and clinical alert and alarm management. Phoebe will start by piloting the Smartbadge across clinical areas and with nurse managers in nursing units, and then will evaluate alerts and alarms on the new device over time.

“It is an honor to celebrate this milestone with a long-time, innovative customer like Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital,” said Brent Lang, president and CEO of Vocera. “We look forward to hearing how the Smartbadge enhances clinical communication, workflows and patient care.”
