Hands Free Communications Badge Saves Critical Seconds in Hospital ERs

Hands free communications badges are being used in hospitals to speed medical response to patients where seconds matter.  Staff members wear a “Star Trek” like badge that is voice activated to perform certain functions.  They can place and receive telephone calls and also broadcast messages and alerts. This could have a huge impact on public safety operations once the voice recognition can be perfected to work in a noisy field environment.

The badge is a wearable lightweight, voice-controlled device utilizing intuitive commands to enable hands-free, instant two-way or one-to-many conversations. The badge runs on a communications platform, which enables intelligent call routing based on name, role, availability and shift-changes, ensuring calls and critical information instantly reach the right care team member in the right place.
