As one of the original video interpretation services innovators, the company has changed the landscape of the telehealth movement. Its products and services break down language barriers between physicians and patients while helping drive better patient outcomes, improved efficiency and ensuring that all Limited English Proficient and Deaf and Hard of Hearing patients receive the standard of care to which they are entitled.

The founder of LAN, Andrew Panos, created the concept and idea for LAN after his brother was in a serious car accident in Mexico. The family confronted significant communication issues between the staff and physicians trying to help them. Panos realized that this situation goes on throughout the United States on a daily basis and wanted to provide a system where both patient and provider can communicate easily and freely, ultimately creating a service that improves care, reduces healthcare costs and saves lives.
