CLEARWATER, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Leading language access company, Stratus Video, has recently expanded the languages available on their proprietary video platform. Video interpreters in Bengali, Swahili, Karen, and Japanese are now available. Video interpreters in Arabic, Mandarin, Vietnamese, and Cantonese are now available 24x7x365.
All users will now benefit from the increased availability of interpreters in these key languages. Bengali, Swahili, Karen, and Japanese were launched in January of this year, and have already been heavily utilized by Stratus Video clients. The addition of 24-hour access to Arabic, Mandarin, Vietnamese, and Cantonese is also significant. According to the US Census Bureau, Chinese and Vietnamese are among the five most common languages spoken in American homes. Arabic is the second most accessed language on the Stratus Video platform following Spanish.
This increased video language ability represents Stratus Video’s continued commitment to providing the best interpretation services to limited English proficiency (LEP) patients. Federal law, including Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act, requires language access to be made available to all LEP patients. The benefits of visual cues as provided by a video call make patient and provider communication easier and more efficient, improving both patient and provider satisfaction.
“We are excited to bring increased availability to our loyal customer base,” said David Fetterolf, Stratus Video President. “The expansion of our services promises to improve LEP patient care and satisfaction within the thousands of healthcare institutions we serve.”
Stratus Video Interpreting combines the benefits of face-to-face interpretation with the on-demand nature of over-the-phone interpretation. The mobile app is easy to use, and gives users instant access to medically qualified interpreters.
