Video interpretation is accomplished via a portable iPad.
Outpatient Clinics/Areas: Every UW Health clinic has access to the interpretation iPad. Please use your areas designated iPad to connect to our video interpreting service.
Inpatient Units: Please contact Interpreter Services at (608) 262-9000 to request a video interpreting iPad for the length of stay of the patient.
The video interpretation feed is transmitted via a secure, encrypted network connection, and the conversation between patient and interpreter is not saved after conclusion. All patient health information is secure.
