Vocera Hosts Webinar on How Situational Awareness Positively Impacts Clinical Workflows

Recent report provides contextual framework for using efficiency and empathy in healthcare communication

SAN JOSE, Calif. January 11, 2018 –(BUSINESS WIRE)– Vocera Communications, Inc. (NYSE:VCRA), a recognized leader in clinical communication and workflow solutions, today announced that its Experience Innovation Network will host a complimentary webinar about the importance of situational awareness as outlined in the recent Clinical Communication Deconstructed Report on Tuesday, Jan. 16, from 2-3 p.m. EST. Combining extensive research and personal interviews with patients, families, industry leaders and frontline practitioners, the report examines several care delivery models and provides innovative solutions to promote effective clinical communication.

More than just listening and responding, communication is the foundation of building sacred, trusted and healing relationships. Chris DeRienzo, MD, MPP, chief quality officer at Mission Health in Asheville, N.C., will share his framework for communicating with patients and training peers to communicate with empathy through the toughest circumstances – from delivering a difficult diagnosis to navigating relationships with colleagues. Liz Boehm, research director at Vocera, will facilitate the webinar and share supportive findings from the research report.

“Human-centered clinical communication occurs when it enhances healing through a compassionate, connected, accurate, timely, and effective exchange of information. And when the intent between people achieves the intended result – whether it is to enhance understanding, facilitate teamwork, or ease suffering,” said Boehm.
