PatientSafe Solutions was designed to be cloud ready and meet the clinical workflow needs of regional health systems and small to midsize healthcare facilities. The solution easily integrates with EMRs and many other clinical and operational systems to close the loop on patient-centered workflows, including positive patient ID (PPID), specimen collection, fall risk assessments, clinician documentation, and more. The contextual, task-based information presented by the app helps nurses, physicians, and other care team members make real-time decisions to provide safe, efficient, and effective care.
“This acquisition positions us well to extend our reach into small and mid-size hospitals with a simple-to-deploy and easy-to-use solution,” said Brent Lang, Chairman and CEO of Vocera. “We anticipate this transaction will also accelerate our evolution to the cloud and provide opportunities to strengthen key relationships, extending our communication and collaboration solutions to support more frontline workers across the continuum of care.”

Using PatientSafe Solutions, clinicians can securely access patient data from the EMR right at the point of care, unifying all communications, workflow tasks, and digital checklists that are specific to each patient. Checklists can include health history, risk assessments, lab results, vitals, medications, and more. Within each secure message, a single click will display real-time patient information and dynamic care team assignments that help clinicians take action and save time. Two-way communication with the EMR enables clinicians to complete documentation in the patient record directly from the app as well as schedule and conduct patient rounds, assign care team members, and track compliance.
“I am excited to join forces with Vocera, which is a leader in the clinical communication and collaboration market,” said Si Luo, PatientSafe Solutions CEO and President. “Together, we can make an even broader impact. With Vocera’s robust salesforce and clinical approach to designing and deploying solutions, we can reach more healthcare organizations and advance our shared mission of improving the safety and well-being of patients and care teams.”
