Streamline hospital communications and workflow

Care teams need tools and devices to help streamline the communication needed to get the job done, while minimizing interruption fatigue and safeguarding the staff. 

The Minibadge can help by: 

  • making it easy for people to locate each other and communicate quickly
  • enabling care teams to communicate safely and effectively during hands-on patient care workflows
  • ensure they can reach help quickly when an emergency arises

Designed and built for patient care

  • Communicate intuitively: Say, “OK Vocera” to wake up the device and start communicating. The Vocera Minibadge implements a natural, easy and intuitive voice-driven flow.

  • Improve staff safety: Even under restrictive PPE, communicate safely and quickly. When emergencies arise, activate a dedicated panic button and open a discreet communication channel to the response team.
  • Easily reach the right person or team: Find someone by saying their name, role, group, or even extension. Call anyone, inside or outside your health system.

  • Triage events quickly: Determine the urgency of events via notifications with LED indicators on the Minibadge.

  • Leverage smartphone functionality: Use the Minibadge with a smartphone to view and share detailed patient, event, and care team context.
