EXTENSION, INC. Alerting Solutions Now Includes Vocera Integration

EXTENSION® announces its clinical alerts and notifications can be delivered to Vocera® devices

FORT WAYNE, Ind.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- EXTENSION announced that its clinical workflow software can send data-rich alerts and notifications to all Vocera devices including the Vocera smartphone and communication badge. EXTENSION aggregates data from clinical and IT systems and medical devices and delivers time-sensitive messages to a variety of endpoints including the Vocera badge, a wearable communication device highly-regarded among clinicians. The context-aware messages – such as nurse call alerts or abnormal lab results – allow healthcare professionals to make more informed decisions regarding treatment.

According to Todd Plesko, CEO of EXTENSION, INC., “Vocera is not only a recognized market-leading innovator in healthcare communications but we have also come to believe that the Vocera system becomes cultural within a nursing unit - nurses love using the Vocera communication solution. We are proud to offer an enhancement to the experience by providing clinical alerting, notification, and messaging between Vocera systems and many systems within a hospital. EXTENSION enhances the value and productivity of the Vocera system."

EXTENSION recently launched an innovative solution, Device Messaging, which marries corporate phones with smartphones – and now Vocera endpoints – via secure, non-SMS text-based messaging. The result is a blended communication environment in which clinicians can instantly communicate with their preferred device. EXTENSION also provides advanced message response options to further streamline workflows.


EXTENSION, INC. provides revolutionary healthcare software solutions that facilitate instant communication between patients and clinicians within enterprise settings. The EXTENSION Solution Suite (ESS) enhances a broad array of communication devices used as clinical workflow tools by aggregating data from various HIS and IT systems, to include medical devices, and delivering context-aware, time-critical alerts and notifications to those devices. The EXTENSION software platform tightly integrates any HL7 or web services-based medical application or device with corporate telephony systems and other endpoints using standards-based protocols. The results of more efficient communication are increased patient and staff safety and satisfaction, improved quality of care, reduced cost and errors, and greater return on telephony and healthcare IT investments.
