(http://www.mediccast.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/ELSA-Device-190x300.png)ProMed Executive Producer Anne Robinson (CaringAnne.com (http://caringanne.com)) joins the panel with her product innovator pick for this year's finale episode from EMS World Expo 2012. Anne found the ELSA from RTT Mobile Interpretation. It's a hand held device that can also be worn on a lanyard around the neck and it connect via cellular connection to a live language interpreter who speaks directly with your patient. Your questions and instructions are interpreted and the patient's responses are interpreted back.
Says the RTT Mobile website (http://www.rttmobile.com/index.html):
The limited english proficient (LEP) population and the need for urgent interpretation in diverse environments continue to increase. While the opportunities for RTT to serve are many, we are delivering world class interpretation expertise to law enforcement, healthcare, financial services and government agencies.
