Vocera Communications, Inc. (NYSE:VCRA), a recognized provider of clinical communication and workflow solutions, has announced a new partnership with QGenda, a provider of enterprise cloud-based physician scheduling automation, the company said.
Vocera will be the exclusive reseller of QGenda´s product portfolio into the federal healthcare market, including the Veterans Health Administration, Department of Defense, and Indian Health Service. Interoperability between the Vocera communication system and the QGenda scheduling solutions will improve care team communication and clinical workflows with on-call providers.
The QGenda portfolio includes solutions for automated scheduling, time tracking, compensation management, and on-call scheduling, providing a comprehensive provider workforce management solution. The combined offering connects QGenda On-Call with the Vocera platform for better clinical communication and workflows, enabling care teams to easily communicate in real-time with the right on-call provider.
Healthcare organizations can quickly build and manage optimized provider schedules and easily create and update consolidated on-call schedules. Integration between the companies´ scheduling and communication solutions saves caregivers valuable time and steps by eliminating the need to know names or phone numbers of available on-call providers to make calls and send texts.
Inside or outside the facility, shift after shift, clinicians will no longer need to manually keep track of schedules and providers. The integration automatically connects the latest schedule with the Vocera communication platform, enabling clinicians to make calls, send secure texts, and route notifications. Care team members have their choice of using a smartphone, wearable Vocera Badge, or desktop computer when connecting with on-call providers.
QGenda is the #1 cloud-based, automated provider scheduling software. Since its launch in 2006, QGenda has grown to serve more than 2,500 customers in over 30 medical specialties.
