Vocera scoops Best VoIP Product prize in the Wireless Broadband Innovation Awards

Vocera Communications UK : 24 May, 2007  (New Product)
Vocera's UK has beenawarded the Wireless Broadband Innovation Award for Best VoIP Product or Service at a ceremony in London.
The award was judged according to the level of innovation, user experience, speed and scale of rollout and finally, market success.

The Vocera Communications System has been successfully implemented in NHS trusts and individual hospitals across the UK, including the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children, the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen NHS Trust and the Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Trust.

The system, which has been likened to a Star Trek communicator badge, allows NHS staff to contact each other at the touch of a button.

Leveraging voice over IP technology and Speech recognition the Vocera system runs over a standard 802.11 wireless network.

By reducing the time and expense of locating staff around a hospital, Vocera allows medical personnel to spend more time concentrating on patient care and less time walking around a site to answer a page.

Patients are also less disturbed by public address systems - a typical means of paging individuals around NHS facilities.

On receiving the award, Nick Stone Vocera's UK sales manager commented, 'It is wonderful that Vocera has been recognised by its peers as leading the field in VoIP communications'.

'For the healthcare sector in particular, the benefits of improving internal communications systems are very tangible as staff can respond faster to calls for assistance and remain with patients while responding to queries'.

'We all know how hard medical staff work in our hospitals and this system aims to make one element of their jobs that little bit easier'.

The judging panel of wireless industry experts was faced with the difficult task this year of selecting the winning companies across the five main award categories.
Over 170 submissions were entered and 2600 industry specialists registered to vote for the winners of the two Industry Achievement Awards.
