Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin Increase Compliance and Satisfaction via Partnership with Language Access Network
Limited English Proficient and Deaf and Hard of Hearing Patients Empowered by Being Able to Communicate Freely
Columbus, OH (PRWEB) October 25, 2012
Wisconsin's Froedtert Hospital has successfully implemented video interpreting services from Language Access Network (“LAN”) to supplement their live and phone interpreting resources. Targeted towards limited English proficient and the deaf and hard of hearing patient populations, LAN provides its rapidly growing client base (more than 200 medical facilities nationwide) with around-the-clock access to the highest quality, trained interpreters available via our centralized video language centers.
Martti (My Accessible Real Time Trusted Interpreter) is LAN's exclusive platform for providing immediate access to high quality interpretation resources with one button simplicity and full mobility throughout the hospital. A revolutionary mobile device, Martti, provides an easy to use, on-demand qualified medical interpreter service using LAN's dedicated HIPAA compliant high-speed broadband network.
“The system allows hospital staff to have prompt access to a live video interpreter afterhours and on weekends which is of paramount importance to our Emergency Room and inpatient units,” says Olga Kozlova, Froedtert's Manager of Language Services. “Thus, we strengthen our compliance and patient and provider satisfaction.”
Language Access Network provides clients with real-time video and audio interpretation capabilities in more than 200 languages that help clients improve operations, enhance financial performance and build trusted patient encounters through clear communication.
“We are proud to welcome Froedtert Hospital to the LAN family of clients,” said James Edwards, LAN's CEO. “Froedtert is clearly committed to serving their LEP and Deaf patient populations and we look forward to helping improve what is already a comprehensive Language Service offering at their institution.”
