Imagine that you’re a tourist visiting the United States with limited English skills. You take a misstep off the curb; you’ve twisted your ankle and you find yourself in the nearest Emergency Room with doctors and nurses asking you questions about your health history, your allergies, your pain levels—you can’t understand them and they can’t understand you.
The staff realizes that you need language assistance. You need an interpreter, and you need one now.
A kiosk is wheeled up to your bedside—the nurse presses a few icons and you’re speaking to someone who speaks your language, someone who can accurately interpret your vital medication information so doctors can provide the best care possible.
You’re talking through Language Access Network’s (LAN) Martti application running on Shuttle Computer Group’s X50V4 All-in-One computer.
Now, with LAN, Martti and Shuttle, more than 250 languages are available on-demand – leading the industry with nearly 60 of those languages available in live video—all at the touch of a button.
Working together, Shuttle, LAN and Martti, provides doctors, nurses, and patients in need of translation services the quick and easy communication they require for the best health outcomes. It’s a win-win for everyone.
