Vocera
If you've ever been discharged from the hospital after major surgery or visited an ED, you know how hard it is to concentrate on what the nurse is telling you about taking your meds or properly redressing your surgical wound. In fact, nine out of ten Americans cannot reiterate the basic patient education they've been provided, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Vocera offers a simple solution to the problem: A discharge communication platform that records the live discharge instructions given by clinicians at the point of care. The recording is then made available to patients and their families to review using any phone, mobile device, or computer. Vocera's 'Good to Go' system also can create and send appointment reminders, tasks, and care messages to patients via text or email.

Re: Vocera? One of these is not like the others
I like Reflexion as well. Where are the Microsoft haters right now?

Anyway, I'd like to point out that Vtrim, the one I would really like to use, doesn't have an online class right now. Classes are coming soon according to its website.

Vocera? One of these is not like the others
Given that it's publicly traded with  $100m in revenues for 2013, calling Vocera a startup is a bit of a stretch! Rest of the list is good. Reflexion is actually a very interesting idea
