CyraCom to Release Mobile Application for Healthcare Interpreter Access

CyraCom, the leading provider of interpretation and translation services for healthcare, has announced the upcoming release of a mobile application for connecting to a trained medical interpreter. The application has been produced as part of CyraCom’s policy of continual technology enhancement to increase added value for its clients.

Utilizing the most recent trends in mobile applications, CyraCom developed the software for all versions of Android, iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. This highly innovative application incorporates a number of specific features created with healthcare professionals in mind, including the ability to enter a Medical Record Number (MRN) for each interpretation call.

Increasingly, hospitals use mobile devices for communication and to access information. CyraCom’s mobile application follows this trend and allows medical staff to access an interpreter the fastest way possible using their personal mobile devices.

CyraCom’s Chief Technology Officer, Chris Patten, discussed the mobile application, stating, “We wanted to design a product that would further increase the quality of care that our clients can offer to Limited English Proficient Patients. With our healthcare clients in mind, we focused on increasing the efficiency and convenience of requesting Over-the-Phone Interpretation. With this application, a medical staff member could be walking down the hall, and after a few swipes, have an interpreter call waiting for them as they walk into a room.”

The application is scheduled to be available for download, free of charge, in early 2011.
