The U.S. Army will expand its use of Vocera Communications-developed technology platforms at three military health facilities as part of a $2.8 million contract with the company.
Vocera said Wednesday the Army Regional Health Command-Pacific will deploy the company’s mobile and wearable devices at the Brian Allgood Army Hospital in South Korea and at the Tripler Army Medical Center and Schofield Barracks Health Clinic in Hawaii.
Tripler will expand the use of wearable technology and deploy the mobile technology throughout the care facility, outpatient clinics and the Schofield Barracks Health Clinic in support of the Medical Command’s efforts to standardize communications through Vocera systems.
Brent Lang, president and CEO at Vocera, said the company’s work with the federal government validates the capacities of Vocera-built communication platforms as well as the company’s ability to boost patient care delivery.
“We expect our momentum within the [Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs] to continue over time as we add new facilities and cross sell within existing customers,” added Lang.
The Vocera Communications Badge wearable technology has also met all federal government requirements as well as complies with FIPS 140-2, the company noted.
