Language Access Network’s (LAN) proven, industry-leading Martti™ video remote interpretation technology is combining with the power of the Carenection Telehealth Delivery Network to create an enterprise telemedicine and digital content platform. This platform will serve leading health systems, hospitals and other healthcare venues. Together, LAN and Carenection currently have more than 500 hospitals on-network, upwards of 5,000 video endpoints in market and provide more than 60,000 encounters monthly.
