Remote Interpretation

Whether you need an interpreter immediately for a one-on-one medical examination or want to schedule one for an upcoming meeting, our interpreters are ready for the job.

There are reportedly 23.5 million people in the US who have limited English proficiency (LEP). Similarly, 80% of US-based healthcare providers have reported that they encounter LEP patients throughout the year and 43% encounter them daily.

Breaking down language barriers between LEP individuals and physicians is important to achieving proper healthcare for patients. It also reduces liability and risks for the patient, caregiver, and medical facility. Patients and doctors need to understand each other accurately to ensure the best outcome.

Our remote interpretation services are compliant with HIPAA, GDPR and regional data sovereignty requirements. We can support healthcare providers with interpreters that are HIPAA certified and experienced, and will make sure your physician-patient discussions are interpreted accurately.

Our over-the-phone and video remote interpretation services allow you to receive either foreign language or sign language interpretation through a computer, phone, or other device when on-site interpretation is not desired or is unavailable.

Our remote interpretation service can be scheduled in advance or accessed immediately through our on-demand service, which connects you with a qualified interpreter for real-time assistance when needed. Our OPI and VRI services are available in more than 250 languages and American Sign Language.
