Communication is the #1 diagnostic tool doctors and nurses have at their disposal, and the best outcomes are based on clear, effective communication between healthcare providers and patients. Currently, hospitals have a one in five chance that they’ll need interpretation services for Limited English Proficient and Deaf and Hard of Hearing patients who come to a hospital for emergency services as well as diagnostic and follow-up care.

Now, with Language Access Networks (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.

THE TECHNOLOGY

Fast, clear and accurate video is a must for interpreters, and the Shuttle X50V4 runs advanced graphics architecture for better, smoother video playback in high definition. “We needed a computer that has great audio and picture quality, with no pixilation; which is especially crucial for American Sign Language interpreters. The Shuttle operates consistently, with great performance,” said Cooper.

Medical environments can be challenging for electronics and the front panel of the X50V4 features an IP54 design, a standard that ensures that the device is protected from dust and splashing water. It is approved for 24/7/365 nonstop operation, a vital task in a hospital environment.

Connecting to WiFi needs to be seamless too; the X50V4 has two WiFi antennas to make sure the connection is strong.  “Two antennas help it to connect to hospital WiFi more easily,” said Cooper.

The X50V4 has a built-in 10/100/1000 Mbps LAN interface and IEEE802.11b/g/n wireless network card. Transmission rates reach up to 300 Mbps for significantly enhanced data transfer efficiency and operation speeds, which make video conversations smooth, with no lag time.
