Illinois hospitals enlisting video translators

Chicago Tribune, April 9, 2009
Concerned about the potential for medical errors as the number of non-English speakers grows, Illinois hospitals are rolling out a live video system that can translate from medical-care providers to patients in 150 languages. The Metropolitan Chicago Healthcare Council and California-based Paras and Associates have launched the effort in three hospitals in Chicago and a fourth in Salem; 25 other facilities are considering adopting the technology.
