COLUMBUS, Ohio, July 3, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Having been voted the Best in Howard County 15 out of the last 16 years, Signature OB/GYN, a community specialty practice of Johns Hopkins Medicine, has proven they know how to ensure an excellent patient experience. A key component of achieving this is ensuring that concise communication is possible for all. However this can be a challenge for patients who don't speak the language of those who are providing their care.
Language Access Network (LAN) is working with Signature OB/GYN utilizing its state-of the-art technology to instantly connect the highest quality, medically trained interpreters with doctors and patients round-the-clock via live video. LAN's Martti™ (My Accessible Real-Time Trusted Interpreter) units allow patients and providers to actually see and communicate directly with interpreters at the touch of a button. LAN interpreters are highly-trained strictly for medical interpretations in over 210 languages, including American Sign Language, and are located in dedicated LAN call centers throughout the U.S., available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
"The easy to use Martti devices improve compliance, decrease unnecessary tests and help achieve better clinical outcomes," explains Andrew Panos, LAN's founder and COO. "In the end this leads to enhanced patient and provider satisfaction and a more efficient system of care."
