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.
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.
“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.”
