About Alerts

The Vocera Platform Messaging Console supports the ability to send and receive alerts, which enables you to respond to urgent or important situations immediately. Alerts can be related to patients assigned to you, or can be unrelated to a specific patient.

Here is some of the functionality that alerts provide:

Important: Your Vocera Platform Messaging Console may have been configured to receive alerts only if you are also logged into Vocera Vina, the Vocera badge, or the Vocera Smartbadge. The alerts that you may receive may also depend on what alert generators have been installed at your facility. Contact your administrator for details on the alerts that you may receive.

Alerts that expect a response within a specified time will expire after this time is reached.

Note: You can miss a message if it is sent in an alert that expires before you read it.
