Accuhealth Now Offers Remote Patient Monitoring in 300+ Languages and ASL
Vast Language Offerings to Increase Accessibility and Inclusivity in Value-Based Care for Everyone
MCALLEN, Texas, November 1, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Accuhealth today announced that its Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) solution is now available to patients in over 300 languages and American Sign Language (ASL) for the hearing impaired through its proprietary video conferencing telemedicine application.
Reaching patients through numerous languages will serve to increase accessibility and inclusivity while providing consistent, quality care to those with chronic conditions like hypertension and diabetes. Language barriers have historically been an impediment in accessing healthcare services for millions of Americans, and the advantages of telemedicine have not been realized equitably, particularly by those with Limited English Proficiency (LEP).
Accuhealth CEO Stephen Samson commented, "As a leading provider of remote patient monitoring and telemonitoring services in the nation, this is another key opportunity for us to close the gap in delivering accessible and equitable care for all. Our diverse patient community is growing rapidly and with that comes different accessibility needs. Providing care in 52 states, including our partners at Federally Qualified Health Centers, it quickly became apparent that we need to support additional languages. Providing more inclusive care through remote patient monitoring will better serve our diverse patient base, and I am very pleased that we have expanded to over 300 languages on our journey to being the most compliant and accessible remote patient monitoring platform in the marketplace."
Patients can now receive important information about their RPM program and utilize voice-enabled technology to request help from Accuhealth in their native language. Similarly, patients utilizing the video conferencing application can be assisted by ASL-trained Accuhealth staff. Patients will stay better connected to their providers and this technology can ultimately be used for hands-on intimate care and health coaching to build better habits and encourage a healthier lifestyle.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau American Community Survey, more than 25 million people had LEP, which accounts for 9% of the U.S. population that is aged five years and older. In the past 10 years, most communities across the U.S. experienced growth in their immigrant population and increases in languages spoken. Federal law requires linguistic services for patients with LEP.
