Certified Languages International Partners with Bluestream Health to Deliver Telemedicine in Any Language

Portland, Ore.-based company expands suite of offerings to include video remote interpreting and professional telehealth services

PORTLAND, Ore. (May , 2016) – Certified Languages International (CLI), a full-service language company, announces their new partnership with Bluestream Health to provide video remote interpreting (VRI) and telehealth services to current and future healthcare clients.

CLI’s unique VRI platform offers the dual advantage of giving users the ability to access remote healthcare professionals as well as interpreters in over 217 languages. This exclusive partnership with Bluestream Health will also allow clients to populate the VRI platform with their own in-house interpreters and medical staff to streamline the delivery of remote healthcare expertise and language services.

“The technology we’re delivering to the market forever changes healthcare’s approach to the patient experience and creates immediate economic benefit through mitigation of patient readmission,” states Chip Graeper, president of strategic acquisition at CLI.

“We’re offering an extensible and secure web-based environment at minimal cost to entry. Providers can place their own remote resources on the platform, offering on-demand video access at the point of care, and supplement with third-party resources like language services when needed.”

This takes the solution that video remote interpreting offers the limited English proficient patient community, and aims to solve all post-acute conditions that can and will arise, remotely, in the patient’s native language, and with the necessary health expert on demand.

Graeper added, “With aid of the Bluestream Health platform, CLI is taking its extensive experience as a language services provider and making a wholesale change to the VRI value proposition for the benefit of the healthcare community at large.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Certified Languages International to increase the availability of mission-critical services at the point-of-care,” says Brian Yarnell, President of Bluestream Health. “Certified Languages International is a thought-leader in the interpretation space, and is known for collaborative relationships with customers that focus on providing high-quality, high-value solutions. This partnership presents a scalable pathway for users of the Bluestream Platform to more effectively utilize internal and external resources in language services and other on-demand specialties to drive better patient outcomes.”

Both companies will attend the American Telemedicine Association’s annual conference in Minneapolis, Minn., on May 14, where they plan to demonstrate the functionality of the new video remote interpreting service.
