While interpreters in hospitals have traditionally used translators on-site, in-hospital video interpretation (VRI) has grown in popularity in recent years and has become the fastest-growing foreign language service in the country, bridging the gap between telephone connections and translation.
The need for Video Remote Interpreting medical interpreters has increased significantly due to the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis. With the increasing need for social distancing and the use of telemedicine services, VRI is proving to be a safe and effective way of communicating with people with limited English and deaf and hearing-impaired patients.
