Vocera
Communications, Inc.
 (NYSE:VCRA), a recognized leader in clinical
communication and workflow solutions, today announced its plans to add
Julie Iskow, the Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer
at Medidata Solutions, Inc., and Bharat Sundaram, the President of
Performance Improvement Services at Vizient, Inc., to its board of
directors in connection with its annual stockholder meeting being held
on May 31, 2019.

For four years, Iskow has been leading product development at Medidata,
a global life sciences technology provider dedicated to improving the
way clinical research is designed, conducted, analyzed, and
commercialized. Its cloud-based platform of solutions, data analytics,
and AI enables efficiency and improves quality throughout clinical
development.

Sundaram leads the analytics, consulting, networks and Sg2 businesses at
Vizient, the largest member driven healthcare performance improvement
company in the country. He also has responsibility for the corporate
development efforts of the organization.

“With a long history of product development and cloud-based solutions,
Julie’s background will be a tremendous benefit to our solution roadmap;
and Bharat’s advanced analytics and healthcare market insights will
strengthen our operational perspective and business strategies,” said
Brent Lang, president and CEO of Vocera. “I look forward to
collaborating with both of the new board members as Vocera grows and
accelerates healthcare innovation.”

Iskow and Sundaram will take the place of departing board members
Jeffrey H. Hillebrand and John B. Grotting, who have both served on the
Vocera board since February 2010. Both long-time board members played
pivotal roles during the company’s successful IPO in 2012, the creation
of Vocera’s long term strategy based on their market knowledge, and the
development of sound governance policies and cultural and compensation
philosophies.

“John and Jeff’s contributions have been invaluable to Vocera as the
company has grown and developed a new category of communication
technology,” said Lang. “On behalf of the board and the entire company,
I want to thank both gentlemen for providing strong leadership and
valuable industry perspectives throughout their tenure as board members.”
