Cited as a national model for healthcare by President Obama, Geisinger Health System recently added a number of Martti® Express units from Language Access Network to meet its growing need for language services. Geisinger already leads the way in offering high quality care well at costs significantly lower than the national average using innovative methods for patient tracking, care provision and staffing.
Geisinger’s reputation helped pave the way for implementing video remote interpreting services throughout the hospital. Using the Martti Express platform, Geisinger has been able to place a number of units throughout the spectrum of care. This keeps the technology component transparent and allows the hospital to focus on patient care, rather than logistics. LAN’s services were an ideal match due to a partnership model that focuses on services, patient satisfaction and patient outcomes.
