InDemand Interpreting, a leading provider of comprehensive language services management for Healthcare, partnered with Swedish Medical Center to provide Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) for the Tết Health Fair held at the Seattle Center on Sunday, February 14, 2016.

Tết is an annual celebration to preserve and promote Vietnamese culture and heritage in the greater Seattle area. The health fair was created in conjunction with the event to support the many health disparities found within the Vietnamese and Asian American populations throughout the region.

Tết Health Fair provided a full range of free dental, vision and medical care specifically for the Vietnamese and Asian populations, including a variety of free health screenings and health services. More than 115 patients were served by nearly 110 healthcare professionals and general support volunteers.

“Partnering with healthcare providers at events such as the Tết Health Fair is integral to our mission at InDemand Interpreting,” said Cecil Kost, InDemand’s Chairman and CEO. “We are committed to doing everything possible to ensure that all individuals, regardless of language, cultural background or disability, has access to the highest quality healthcare.”

“We were so pleased to partner with InDemand Interpreting to provide seamless and effective communication between providers and patients who attended Tết Health Fair,” said Health Fair Director for the Tết in Seattle Ashley Nguyen. “Having Vietnamese and Asian interpreters available to speak with providers and patients at the click of a button made a tremendous difference in our ability to efficiently serve Health Fair attendees.”
