Department of Defense Awards Significant Contracting Vehicle for Vocera Solutions

Vocera Communications, Inc. (VCRA), a recognized leader in clinical communication and workflow solutions, announced today that the Department of Defense (DoD) has awarded a Single Award Task Order Contract (SATOC) to Government Marketing and Procurement (GMP), the reseller for Vocera in federal markets.

The SATOC is a contracting vehicle that outlines the terms and conditions for delivery, installation, configuration, engineering, furnishing, and hardware testing of wireless hands-free communication technology to the Defense Health Agency (DHA), which is responsible for providing medical services to the DoD. All three military branches can leverage this contract to easily purchase Vocera solutions.

“By utilizing Vocera technology to improve clinical communication and enhance mobility through greater responsiveness and more bedside care, DHA is improving the quality of care it delivers to the nation’s military family worldwide,” said Travis Kuykendall, GMP executive vice president.

The SATOC process is used by federal agencies to simplify and expedite purchasing within the Military Health System. GMP was chosen to be the sole provider of the Vocera wireless hands-free communication system.

“Vocera is proud to be the provider of hands-free communication systems to the DHA,” said Brent Lang, president and CEO at Vocera. “Earning this contract is an impressive accomplishment and required the Vocera system meet several stringent federal requirements for security and interoperability. Having this contract in place will streamline the purchasing process with the DHA.”

The Vocera communication system is the standard across U.S. Army Medical Command (MEDCOM) facilities worldwide. Proven to help care teams reduce steps and save valuable time, this communication system integrates with more than 140 operational and clinical systems, including electronic health records, nurse call systems, physiologic monitors and real-time location systems.
