CLEARWATER, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Leading language access company, Stratus Video, has announced the ability to add video remote interpreters to any telehealth video conferencing system with their new product, Stratus Link. If healthcare providers need to engage a limited English proficiency (LEP) patient remotely, they can now add a medically qualified Stratus Video interpreter to their telehealth video call.
As the leading video remote interpretation platform in healthcare, Stratus Video has partnered with thousands of healthcare facilities across the nation, many of whom utilized different telehealth platforms to service patients remotely. Stratus Video’s interoperability with any and every system demonstrates their continued commitment to a patient service model of care. LEP patients can now receive the same access to telehealth services as their English-speaking counterparts.
The interoperation product was inspired by the VRI integration into the Cisco-based telehealth solution at Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN), a Stratus Video client. Cisco carts at LVHN offer remote video consultations along with video remote interpretation, making patient communication easy regardless of the patient’s primary language.
“Stratus Link has helped us to achieve health equity,” said Joumana de Santiago, Manager of Interpreter Services at LVHN, “now LEP patients have even greater access to the full spectrum of care we provide.”
“We are excited that our services are now more widely available to LEP patients,” said David Fetterolf, President of Stratus Video. “Now all patients can benefit from high quality language interpretation remotely.”
Stratus Video Interpreting combines the benefits of face-to-face interpretation with the on-demand nature of over-the-phone interpretation. The service is easy to use, and gives users instant access to medically qualified interpreters.
