Vocera Communications, Inc. (NYSE:VCRA), a recognized leader in clinical communication and workflow solutions, today announced that the company’s president and CEO, Brent Lang, and its chief medical information officer, Ben Kanter, MD, will discuss strategies to improve patient care, safety and clinician well-being at two upcoming Becker’s Hospital Review events.
“Protecting people and improving quality of life are top priorities for many hospitals and health systems across the country,” Lang said. “Product innovations, like the panic button on the Vocera Smartbadge and the patient safety focus of Vocera Vina, our new smartphone communications app, demonstrate our commitment to improving safety. We want to bring more visibility to the great work being done by our healthcare customers to safeguard the physical, mental and emotional well-being of both patients and staff.”
Dr. Kanter will co-present with Tom Stafford, vice president and CIO at Halifax Health, on Friday, Oct. 11, from 1:45-2:15 p.m. CT, at the Becker’s 5th Annual Health IT and Revenue Cycle Conference. The two information technology experts will discuss critical success factors for creating a real-time health system and connecting care teams to each other and to meaningful information when it matters most.
“Organizations must have an enterprise communication and collaboration platform to quickly transform data into actionable information and send it to the right person at the right time to help save lives,” Dr. Kanter said. “Intelligent integrations with the right CC&C platform can simplify workflows, improve response times, and reduce cognitive load among clinicians.”
Lang will extend the conversation about effective communication when he joins a panel of industry leaders addressing workplace violence in healthcare. The panel will generate more awareness about this growing issue at the Becker’s Hospital Review 4th Annual CEO and CFO Conference on Tuesday, Nov. 12, from 12:50-1:30 p.m. CT. Lang also will lead a roundtable discussion on human-centered innovations to elevate patient and care team safety in a digital healthcare landscape.
Hundreds of physicians, nurses, CIOs, CEOs, CFOs and many others striving to transform healthcare are expected to attend the fall Becker’s Hospital Review conferences, which will feature more than 100 speakers discussing best practices, revenue cycle opportunities, and the latest information technology that will help strengthen hospitals and health systems in 2020 and beyond.
