With VRI, we are better able to provide culturally appropriate services to our patients. The new VRI technology is facilitating our mission to contribute to the health of our community.
Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) February 10, 2016
InDemand Interpreting, a leading provider of language access and Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) within Healthcare, recently partnered with Heart City Health Center to improve access to language services by implementing video remote interpreting (VRI).
For nearly 23 years, Heart City Health Center has provided the Elkhart community with access to high quality, affordable medical, dental, and behavioral healthcare. Through the partnership with InDemand Interpreting, providers can now communicate more effectively with their limited English proficient (LEP) and Deaf patients and families.
“With VRI, we are better able to provide culturally appropriate services to our patients,” said Dr. Martina McGowan, Deputy Chief Medical Officer at Heart City Health Center. “The new VRI technology is facilitating our mission to contribute to the health of our community while improving our patient satisfaction.”
VRI immediately connects patients and providers to a medically trained and certified interpreter 24 hours a day, in more than 200 languages, including American Sign Language. The new VRI program provides enhanced language services to patients through VRI, while improving patient care.
“We are pleased to serve as the trusted language services partner for Heart City Health Center and to implement video remote interpreting as part of their efforts to ensure high quality patient care,” said InDemand Interpreting Chairman and CEO Cecil Kost. "By delivering the most experienced medical interpreters and highest quality video technology available, InDemand provides healthcare centers with the language access they need to ensure the best possible care for limited English proficient and Deaf populations.”
