Stratus Video Interpreting Partners With Yale-New Haven Hospital to Provide On-Demand Medical Interpretation Services in Sign Language and Languages Other than English

brianjo 19

Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) February 17, 2015 To better serve the needs of patients who are deaf, hard-of-hearing, and of limited English proficiency (LEP), Connecticut-based Yale-New Haven Hospital (YNHH) has partnered with Stratus Video Interpreting to provide on-demand medical interpretation in multiple departments and locations. The medical center is deploying a combination of stationary and mobile touch-screen units that will enable hospital staff to access Stratus video remote interpreting (VRI) when American Sign Language (ASL) or interpretation for any language other than English is required and in-person interpreters are not available. “As the first hospital in the state of Connecticut to deploy Stratus Video’s on-demand medical interpretation services across multiple departments and campuses, we are committed to serving the needs of patients who are deaf, hard-of-hearing or of limited English proficiency,” said Maureen Rosselli, who is the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services Coordinator for Yale-New Haven Hospital (YNNH), as well as a multi-certified ASL interpreter and instructor. YNHH has made significant equipment investments to ensure widespread access to video interpretation services. This includes the deployment of 18 large carts with 23-inch, three-in-one touch screens, which will be stationed in emergency departments, transplant centers, operating suites and other designated locations. They are currently used at the hospital’s York Street campus, Saint Raphael campus and Shoreline Medical Center, with other locations to follow. The stationary units will be supplemented by 30 mobile units consisting of iPads mounted on poles—or “iPoles”—which are designated for use in Smilow Cancer Hospital infusion centers, labor and birth suites, physical therapy centers and other areas. The iPoles can be easily wheeled around the facilities to provide access to Stratus’ certified healthcare interpreters anytime and anywhere they are needed. Rosselli notes that YNHH built its own carts with extra-large touch screens to ensure the monitor was large enough to facilitate communication clearly, since some patients also have visual limitations. By partnering with Stratus, YNHH can now provide its patients with on-demand interpretation services in more than 175 spoken and signed languages. Currently, the hospital’s most commonly requested languages are Spanish, Arabic and ASL interpretation. The expanded access to interpretation services is part of a broad program of performance improvement initiatives undertaken by the Yale-New Haven Health System, which recently earned recognition for its efforts to improve the quality of patient care while reducing related costs.(1) “We are proud that Yale-New Haven Hospital chose to partner with Stratus; and together, we are committed to setting a new standard for healthcare interpretation services,” said Sean Belanger, CEO of Stratus Video Interpreting. “At Stratus, we designed our services to be flexible and adaptable, with cloud-based video communications that can run on virtually any device and any Wi-Fi or 4G cellular network. Yale-New Haven Hospital capitalized on those capabilities with a customized video remote interpreting solution that includes both stationary and mobile units. Their implementation demonstrates how healthcare providers nationwide can better serve deaf, hard-of-hearing and LEP patients in any medical environment.” For more information on Yale-New Haven Hospital, visit http://www.ynhh.org.

brianjo 47

(PRWEB) November 25, 2014 GuitarControl.com released a new video guitar lesson from GuitarControl.com instructor and creator Claude Johnson.

Claude demonstrates this easy guitar lick in the key of B as follows; 9th fret of the 4th string with 2nd finger to the 7th fret of the 3rd string with first finger to the 9th fret with 4th finger. Claude plays this sequence twice as triplets for beats one and two and then repeats the first two notes as ¼ notes for beats three and four and ending finally on the first note. “That’s a lick that I came up with just now for you guys”, says Johnson, “if you want to learn more about arpeggios check out my course Killer Guitar Control Secrets”.

brianjo 49

London, UK (PRWEB) February 09, 2015 HSBC Holdings Plc, Banco Santander SA, Lloyds Banking Group Plc and BNP Paribas SA remained in the top four places in SNL Financial’s new league table of Europe’s 20 largest banks by market capitalization. At €150.64 billion as of Dec. 31, 2014, HSBC’s market cap rose 6.60% from June 30, 2014, with its stock price increasing approximately 6% in the second half. Santander hung on to its No. 2 spot despite a market cap decrease of 1.91% between June 30 and Dec. 31, during which time the Spanish lender’s stock price fell 8%. In early January 2015, it completed a €7.5 billion capital increase. With a market cap of €58.24 billion as of Dec. 31, Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc moved up to fifth place in the table, from seventh place as of June 30. At €52.84 billion as of Dec. 31, 2014, Switzerland’s UBS Group AG remained in the No. 6 spot, with a market cap increase of 5.04%. The newly formed bank holding company was established in the fourth quarter of 2014 as a result of UBS AG’s share-for-share exchange offer. Barclays Plc rose two places to seventh, with its market cap up 18.49% over the second half to €51.73 billion as of Dec. 31. Intesa Sanpaolo SpA, Deutsche Bank AG and Credit Suisse Group AG all rose three spots, while Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria SA and Standard Chartered Plc both dropped three spots compared to their positions at June 30. Svenska Handelsbanken AB re-entered at No. 20 with a market cap of €24.70 billion, from No. 21 on June 30. The Swedish bank’s stock price rose approximately 9% over the period. Handelsbanken took the place of OAO Sberbank of Russia, which was 11th by market cap at June 30, 2014, but fell out of the top 20 amid the turmoil in its home country.
