NEW YORK, Jan. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Bluestream Health, a healthcare technology firm that embeds on-demand remote expertise in point of care systems through a secure video platform, partners with DT Interpreting, an industry-leading provider of American Sign Language (ASL) interpreting. This partnership provides a seamless path for healthcare providers to embed ASL video interpreting in any context and provides DT Interpreting with a robust platform to more flexibly and cost-effectively meet the needs of deaf patients across its customer base.
"When we founded Bluestream Health, we were excited about the potential impact of a low-cost platform that could provide on-demand access to healthcare providers' own remote resources at the point of care as well as tap outside experts when needed," states Brian Yarnell, Founder and President at Bluestream Health. "This partnership with DT Interpreting makes that vision a reality. DT Interpreting is already delivering best-in-class ASL interpreting to many hospitals, clinics and other healthcare providers. We are confident that users of the Bluestream Platform will be thrilled with the ability to access this group of professionals on-demand, at the point of care with no software installs or custom configuration."
Healthcare providers using the Bluestream Platform to connect patients and care providers with their own resources such as physicians and in-house interpreters will now have the option to seamlessly integrate 3rd-party ASL interpretation from DT Interpreting into the experience. Additionally, DT Interpreting is leveraging the Bluestream Platform internally to provide its customers with faster, easier and less expensive access to its interpreters. Both organizations' customers will be able to access video interpreting services from virtually any hardware, with no software installs and have real time visibility into availability and wait times.
