Vocera Communications, Inc. (NYSE:VCRA), a recognized leader in clinical communication and workflow solutions, today announced it received an Authority to Operate (ATO) from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) that extends the potential purchase and deployment of the hands-free Vocera Badge beyond the Army to facilities in the Air Force and Navy worldwide.

This DoD security process is an integral part of authorizing, securing and managing healthcare technology systems across the DoD. The ATO is based on compliance with strict security requirements and risk assessments outlined in the Risk Management Framework (RMF). The RMF, a unified information security framework, was developed by the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) to help DoD and federal agencies manage and monitor information technology risks.

For many years the wearable Vocera Badge has been used in MEDCOM facilities around the world to improve care team communication, said Gregory Young, vice president of military health systems at Vocera. With this new ATO, we are very excited to extend our customer base and offer our defense-grade solution to healthcare facilities in the U.S. Air Force and Navy.

The Vocera Badge meets all federal government requirements, is FIPS 140-2 compliant, and Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) certified. Proven to reduce steps and save time, this communication solution enables mobile healthcare workers to connect with the right person, group and information instantly. It also integrates with more than 140 clinical systems, including electronic health records, nurse call systems, physiologic monitors, and real-time location systems.
