Vocera Communications Inc., vendor of wireless, one-touch voice communication and documentation software that works via wearable badges and serving more than 750 hospitals, has filed to conduct an $80 million initial public offering of stock.

Founded in 2000, Vocera between October 2010 and January 2011 made its first acquisitions to expand its portfolio, buying four companies in that time span. They included Clinical Health Communications and Integrated Voice Solutions, which have software using landline or mobile phones to manage patient hand-off communications via voice or text; ExperiaHealth, a consultancy specializing in workflow issues; and Wallace Wireless, which sells delivery of pages, text messages and alerts to AT&T and Blackberry smart phones. For now, sales of the core voice communication product account for substantially all of Vocera's revenue, according to the registration statement.
