SEATTLE, Nov. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- InDemand Interpreting, a leading provider of Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) and other language services to healthcare, was named one of the "Top 10 Health IT Products Healthcare Leaders Rave About" in the Becker's Hospital Review Readers' Choice awards. Among the list of top 10 selected products, which ranges from chronic care to cybersecurity, each one includes rave reviews from Becker's Hospital Review readers.
Becker's Hospital Review requested feedback from its readers about the thousands of solutions in the health IT field and the tools readers would recommend to compile the top 10 list, according to the publication.
InDemand Interpreting was selected based on the language services solutions available to healthcare providers nationwide, offering video remote interpreting (VRI) for limited English proficient (LEP) and Deaf patients. VRI supports healthcare providers with immediate access to more than 200 languages, including American Sign Language (ASL), all accessible from laptops, tablets and mobile carts that can be wheeled into a patient's room.
Kathy Kanaley, the Patient Care Representative from Kenmore Mercy Hospital, in Buffalo, New York, successfully implemented VRI throughout their health care system, and she shared her experience with Becker's Hospital Review readers.
"America's ever-growing cultural melting pot makes it difficult for hospitals to communicate with each patient in his or her native language," said Kanaley. "The evolving field of virtual interpreters is ensuring medical conversations are easier and patients receive the highest quality care regardless of language barriers, cultural backgrounds or disabilities. Hospitals that use video remote interpreting systems note improvements in patient satisfaction when they are able to communicate with a live person who can speak their native language."
