NEW YORK (PRWEB) June 23, 2020
Originally inspired by Year of the Nurse and National Nurse’s Week, this “Empowering our Healthcare Heroes & First Responders” campaign evolved out of a need to address the challenges facing our frontline responders during the COVID-19 pandemic. This campaign advocates for innovative solutions that support healthcare workers and improve patient care and safety across the country.
Mediaplanet and Vocera Communications, Inc., a recognized leader in clinical communication and workflow solutions, are partnering to showcase solutions that help care team members stay connected and safe while caring for patients inside or outside the hospital, in isolation rooms, pop-up locations, or makeshift tents. The campaign, which includes print and digital components, provides valuable insights to help improve the safety, well-being, and resiliency of nurses and other healthcare heroes. Mediaplanet worked with the American Hospital Association, American Academy of Ambulatory Care Nursing on Nursing Care Coordination, the Red Cross, and many other organizations to publish educational resources for the campaign.
The print component of “Empowering Our Healthcare Heroes & First Responders” is distributed within today’s edition of USA Today in Chicago, Los Angeles, Detroit, Cincinnati, Philadelphia, Houston, Seattle, Atlanta, Boston, Florida, New York and Washington D.C./Baltimore markets, with a circulation of approximately 200,000 copies. The digital component is distributed nationally through a vast social media strategy and across a network of top news sites and partner outlets.

“Vocera is proud to help safeguard and support healthcare heroes on the frontlines who dedicate their lives to helping others,” said Rhonda Collins, DNP, RN, FAAN, chief nursing officer of Vocera.
The Vocera Badge and Vocera Smartbadge can be used under personal protective equipment (PPE) for hands-free communication, minimizing risk of contamination and helping preserve valuable PPE without disrupting workflow. Using simple voice commands, such as “call infection control team” or “call respiratory therapist,” care team members can connect with the right person or group, quickly and safely, saving critical time and resources.
