There is an iPad available for use for video interpreters. This replaces the language line phone for the languages it has access to, when face to face UWHC interpreters are not available. One of the languages not available at this time is Hmong, which should be coming in a couple of months.

Those available:

American Sign Language

Arabic

Korean

Nepali

Russian

Vietnamese

Spanish

Cantonese

Mandarin

Portuguese

Somali

As an example, currently on the patient’s appointment under the provider/resource section, if an interpreter is assigned the following information is noted:

WAKEEN, MAUREEN [395139]

Interpreter assigned in person

If there is no interpreter available, the following will be noted:

WAKEEN, MAUREEN [395139]

Interpreter assigned by video

Additionally there are 200 languages available in audio only.

The video interpreter is the only function that this iPad can be used for, as it has no other functionality capabilities.

The iPad will be kept on the table in my office. Please let either myself, Mike, Kris or Erinn know if you need to use it. There is an instruction sheet for use with the iPad. Please plug back in to charge when you are done. It does have a GPS installed to track if lost, however this will only work if it is charged.

Please let me know if you have questions.

Thanks,

Nancy
