Vocera Communications, Inc. (NYSE:VCRA), a recognized leader in clinical communication and workflow solutions, today announced that Vocera mobile applications have been certified for use with the Spectralink Versity smartphone. Additionally, Vocera will be a select reseller of Versity, giving the companies’ joint customers a seamless way to improve clinical communication and patient care, safety, and experience inside and outside the hospital.
“In fast-paced environments like hospitals, nurses, doctors, and other care team members need smart, durable mobile solutions that make their jobs easier,” said Doug Werking, CEO of Spectralink. “We are excited to integrate Versity with the Vocera solution to reduce information silos and provide meaningful patient information to clinicians at the right time, helping them make informed decisions quickly.”
The Spectralink Versity smartphone is sleek, light, rugged, and purpose-built for healthcare. Versity provides unmatched Wi-Fi voice quality and is the ideal complement to the Vocera Platform’s unique voice-driven user experience that allows clinicians to securely call by name, role, or group across the hospital or health system.
The integrated Vocera smartphone app, Vocera Vina, enables clinicians to manage all communication, including voice calls, secure text messages, alerts, and alarm notifications on one device. Accessing the app on Versity is fast and easy with single sign-on activated by a quick tap of a proximity badge. The intelligent Vina app, powered by the Vocera Platform, shows which care team members are logged in and who is available.
Health systems can now purchase Versity directly from Vocera, gaining the benefit of single-vendor continuity across their communication solution. Vocera is both a Spectralink Engage Channel Partner and a Spectralink Application Integration and Management Solutions (AIMS) partner. Through these partnership programs, Vocera and Spectralink work closely on product design, technical validation, and interoperability. Coordinated deployment, implementation, and technical support, including timely software and security updates, allow for a seamless experience for hospital IT teams and care teams.
“We are excited to partner with Spectralink and provide valuable solutions that help ensure frictionless workflows across sites and shared devices,” said Brent Lang, president and CEO of Vocera. “The integration with Versity gives our customers the freedom to choose the best device for the job.”
