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.
