Vocera Communications secured authorizationÂ from the Department of Defense to offerÂ aÂ wearable medical communications platform for potential use by U.S. Air Force and Navy clinicians.
DoD granted authority to operate for theÂ Vocera Badge, which is designed to complyÂ with the Federal Information Processing Standards 140-2 and certified by Joint Interoperability Test Command, the company said Tuesday.
The hands-free device helps mobile healthcare personnel to remotely access electronic health records and other clinical assets.
Gregory Young, vice president of military health systems at Vocera, said theÂ Army Medical Command has used the badge to facilitateÂ care team communications.
The DoD ATO certification processÂ evaluates a technology vendor'sÂ compliance with government security requirements and a risk management frameworkÂ from the National Institute for Standards and Technology.
