Interpreter

Management

System

“Professional interpreters must be used in all patient care settings to promote effective communication, ensure quality and safety in patient care and to minimise potential adverse events.”

Providing interpreters is an integral service provided by many of the hospitals and medical centres. Managing bookings can be a very dynamic and ever changing process with thousands of bookings which can, in turn, mean thousands of changes.

Language departments do an amazing job, some- times managing over a 100 different languages. Coordinating this process can be resource intensive and demanding. At times, language service departments have not been equipped with the right tools to manage bookings, predict trends or foresee demands. IMS will simplify the complex task of managing interpreters and their availability.

Implementing IMS can drastically reduce administration times and costs.
