Original Press Release:
Industry-First Telephone for Health Care Developed by CyraCom
Hospital Trials Complete for Limited-English Interpretation
TUCSON, Ariz., Sept. 26 /-- Clinically relevant timing, especially important for serving limited-English speaking patients in hospitals and health care facilities, is now markedly enhanced with the development of the industry's first dual-handset cordless phone, ClearLink(TM) Cordless.
Precedent-setting, as was CyraCom's invention of its patented dual-handset phone now known as ClearLink(TM), this new cordless phone is specifically designed for medical interpretation in health care settings. ClearLink(TM) Cordless also is patented, with an additional patent pending.
The ClearLink(TM) Cordless mobile dual-handsets provide access for language interpretation service in nearly any patient care environment. It is particularly well-suited for use in emergency, labor and delivery, physical therapy and occupational medicine departments, as well as out-patient clinics. It provides improved access to over-the-phone interpretation in areas of health care facilities with limited phone access. Another advantage of its mobility is that it enhances workflow by allowing caregivers to sequentially treat patients with a common language need while connected to the same interpreter.
ClearLink(TM) Cordless has belt clips and headsets to give caregivers more freedom of movement. Its high quality speakerphone features, including a handset volume control, enable hands-free communication. The smooth surface has a specially designed coating unique to ClearLink(TM) that helps ensure effective infection control.
"This new cordless phone can easily be set up for interpretation service when clinicians need it, and virtually anywhere," said CyraCom CEO Michael Greenbaum. CyraCom introduced its first patented dual-handset phone in 1995.
Leading hospitals nationwide have trialed ClearLink(TM) Cordless as part of CyraCom's ongoing program of bringing innovative products and services to its clients.
"By providing high quality sound and mobility, the ClearLink(TM) Cordless handsets and headset option make over-the-phone interpretation much more effective while treating patients during physical therapy treatment," said Nancy L. Gessner, Chief Physical Therapist, South Nassau Communities Hospital.
CyraCom's now serves more than 1,000 hospitals and health care facilities nationwide. Its language services include on-demand telephonic interpretation, document translation and medical interpreter testing and training. Its technology won a national health care award from InfoWorld magazine. The company has been named to both the Inc. 500 and Inc. 5000 lists of fastest-growing private companies in the United States.
