Vocera Releases Clinical Workflow Engine
Mobile healthcare communications company Vocera today introduced the Vocera Clinical Workflow Engine to streamline integrations between the Vocera Communication System and clinical systems, such as nurse call and electronic health records (EHRs). By integrating Vocera with these and other solutions, hospitals can automatically send alerts to nurses assigned to particular patients based on the intelligent workflow defined in the system.
Vocera's Clinical Workflow Engine eliminates the need for third-party middleware. It streamlines clinical workflows for voice, messaging, patient monitoring alerts and alarms, nurse calls, EHRs, bed managemen,t and other clinical systems.
"Real-time communication requires seamless integration between systems to ensure clinicians have the right information at the right time to optimize workflow, improve patient care and safety, and reduce costs," said Gautam Shah, vice president of product management at Vocera, in a statement. "The Vocera Clinical Workflow Engine allows the Vocera Communication System to operate as a single-source for clinical integrations, simplifying and improving the accuracy and efficiency of communication, data flow, reporting, and analytics."
