An Effective Way for Doctors to Use Vocera

Posted by: Kenny Schiff on November 1, 2007

Many Doctors feel that Vocera is too intrusive and interrupts their time with a patient. They would rather be paged and answer the page when they feel it is appropriate.

Here’s how Vocera can help:

If the Doctor’s pager has been entered into the system, they can simply put themselves on DND for the length of time they are with a patient. Anyone calling will hear “Dr … is not accepting calls right now, would you like to send a page?”

If they respond with yes, then not only does the Doctor receive the page as they prefer, but the person paging can answer it from their Vocera badge. If the person does not send a page they will be asked if they would like to leave a message. This also allows for Urgent calls or Urgent Broadcasts to get right to the Doctor in an emergency.
