InDemand Interpreting, a language services improvement company and video remote interpreting (VRI) provider within Healthcare, attended the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) 2016 Inspiring Leaders Conference last week. Participation in the conference demonstrates the company’s ongoing support of nurses and healthcare providers nationwide to bridge the communication gap with limited English proficiency (LEP), Deaf and hard of hearing patients.
InDemand Interpreting provides immediate access to certified, medical interpreters 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in more than 200 spoken languages in addition to American Sign Language (ASL) across the continuum of care. Through its video remote interpreting (VRI) technology, nurses and clinicians have greater language access for their limited English proficiency (LEP) and Deaf patients, providing better overall patient care. Many nurses and health systems using VRI report better communication with patients and family members, better provider experiences and increased compliance with federal requirements.
“InDemand is pleased to attend important leadership conferences like AONE to understand the challenges facing healthcare professionals today and to ensure that InDemand continues to innovate to effectively support medical conversations and ensure patients receive the highest quality care regardless of language barriers, cultural background or disabilities,” said InDemand Interpreting Chairman and CEO Cecil Kost.
“Throughout my 42 years working as a nurse, video remote interpreting has been the most beneficial technological advancement yet,” said Cyndy Daniel, a nurse at Providence Milwaukie Hospital, in Milwaukie, Oregon. “Having remote interpreters available right when we need them has made an incredible difference in the ability to clearly communicate with patients and improve overall patient care.”
