SEATTLE, January 16, 2018 /PRWeb/ — InDemand Interpreting, a technology-enabled medical interpreting company, is pleased to announce it was selected as a finalist for the Seattle Business Leaders in Healthcare 2018. Seattle Business magazine is recognizing organizations that are pioneering the effort to advance healthcare in Washington. InDemand video remote interpreting (VRI) partners with healthcare organizations throughout Washington and nationwide to bridge the communication gap between limited English proficient (LEP), Deaf and hard of hearing patients (HOH) and their clinicians.
InDemand immediately connects healthcare professionals to medically qualified interpreters 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in more than 200 languages, including American Sign Language (ASL) and Certified Deaf Interpreters (CDIs).
“In this time of great turmoil in the health care industry, it is more important than ever to recognize the institutions and individuals who are doing so much to make Washington state among the best places in the nation to receive health care,” said Leslie Helm, executive editor of Seattle Business magazine.
InDemand Interpreting VRI devices are used throughout many Washington healthcare facilities. A few of those facilities include: Swedish Medical Center, Seattle Children’s, MultiCare Health System, Confluence Health, International Community Health Services and many others who are connecting patients and providers with immediate access to medically qualified interpreters at the touch of a button.
“Today’s health systems are facing the challenge of meeting the communication needs of an ever-growing, diverse patient population while delivering higher quality and more efficient patient care,” said InDemand Interpreting Chairman and CEO Cecil Kost. “This recognition validates our mission to ensure every patient, regardless of language, culture or disability, receives access to the highest quality care.”
Winners will be announced at an awards gala on March 1, 2018 and featured in the March 2018 edition of Seattle Business magazine.
