T2 Custom Vocera Headsets Provide Customers with Privacy and HIPAA Compliance Options

Posted by: Kenny Schiff on June 1, 2012

Customers Deploying the Vocera® Communication platform Concerned About Privacy and HIPAA Compliance Have Options

Since 2009 T2 Technical Services has been providing Vocera customers with a variety of headset options to meet privacy and HIPAA mandates. T2’s Vocera-ready headsets are customized Plantronics MX150 style noise canceling devices that have been specially modified with shortened cords in either 13″ or 16″ lengths. T2 also produces a value-priced ear-bud headset modeled after the standard Blackberry earpiece as an alternative.

Initially designed to be a one-to-one replacement for the special Vocera model that Plantronics modified for Vocera usage (a standard headset with 9″ cord designed to work specifically with a Vocera headset lanyard), T2 soon discovered that customers preferred using the headsets without Vocera’s special headset lanyards, and that many customers were using the headsets with Vocera badge clips. Based on direct feedback the 13″ and 16″ variant were born. Have a preferred headset that you’d like to make Vocera-ready? T2 can work with you to fabricate a custom version of most commercially available headsets.

Customers seeking to purchase the headsets can buy them from T2’s online store, or can contact 888.427.2215 to make arrangements for bulk procurement via purchase order.
