Clinicians and patients gain immediate access to medically qualified interpreters at the largest clinic of its kind held in Washington State
SEATTLE, September 19, 2018— For the fifth consecutive year, InDemand Interpreting, a technology-enabled medical interpreting company, will provide video remote interpreting (VRI) services for the Seattle/King County Clinic held at the KeyArena at Seattle Center September 20 – 23, 2018.
The four-day, volunteer-driven clinic provides a full range of free dental, vision and medical care to underserved and vulnerable populations in the region. The effort, involving months of preparation and thousands of healthcare professionals and volunteers, transforms KeyArena into the largest clinic of its kind in Washington State.
Last year, more than 135 organizations, along with thousands of individual volunteers, contributed to the effort. Ultimately, 4,229 volunteers provided just over $3.7 million in dental, vision and medical care to 4,345 individuals. InDemand Interpreting provided more than 8,000 minutes of interpretation in 46 languages to clinic participants.
Using InDemand VRI technology, clinicians and staff at the Seattle/King County Clinic will once again be able to immediately access medically qualified interpreters, improving patient and provider communication with limited English proficient (LEP), Deaf and hard of hearing (HOH) patients.
Effective communication between patients and providers is the key to a better patient experience and improved care. InDemand designs products and solutions specifically to support languageaccess, across every clinical setting, to make VRI accessible and convenient.
“We are proud to participate in such an important clinic dedicated to supporting the vulnerable and underserved populations throughout our community for the fifth consecutive year,” said InDemand Interpreting Chairman and CEO Cecil Kost. “We remain committed to ensuring every individual, regardless of language, cultural background or disabilities, receives the highest quality care.”
