Banner Health Partners with InDemand Interpreting to Remove Language Barriers throughout its Health Care System
Jul 14 15
Banner Health partnered with InDemand Interpreting, to remove language barriers throughout its health care system. Banner Health has interpreters available 24 hours a day, seven days a week in more than 200 spoken languages in addition to American Sign Language (ASL). The VRI system is used throughout Banner Health and offers interpretive services on computers mounted on portable carts that can be wheeled into a patient's room. VRI enables the hospital staff to use interpreters via a live, web-based video conference with medically trained and certified interpreters. According to Risk Management Consultant Elizabeth Swan for Banner Health, the number of interpreter encounters at Banner has dramatically increased with the use of qualified interpreters using VRI. This change has led to a reduced risk of miscommunication with patients and family, compliance with federal and The Joint Commission requirements and an overall decrease in expenses. The evolving field of video remote interpreting is supporting hospitals nationwide to ensure that medical conversations are more effective and patients receive the high quality care regardless of language barriers, cultural backgrounds or disabilities.
Arizona State University and Banner Health Launch Major Effort to Fight Neurodegenerative Diseases
Jun 10 15
Arizona State University and Banner Health announced a new research alliance to advance the scientific study, treatment and prevention of Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other neurodegenerative diseases. The partnership between Arizona State University and Banner Health, includes the launch of a new Arizona State University-Banner Neurodegenerative Disease Research Center on ASU's Tempe campus. This effort capitalizes on Banner's internationally recognized programs in Alzheimer's disease research and patient care and ASU's rapid ascension as a research university. It also leverages Banner's close working relationships with other research organizations in Arizona. The new center at ASU will begin July 1 and the search for a scientific director will continue. As part of this partnership, ASU will invite six scientists from Banner Sun Health Research Institute to relocate to the Tempe campus where they will have access to other scientists, laboratory space and support to advance their research. The center is expected to rapidly grow to become a pre-eminent research center in both size and impact through aggressive recruitment of innovative research teams pursuing causes and treatments for neurodegenerative diseases. Banner will continue to grow its clinical and research programs at Banner Alzheimer's Institute and Banner Sun Health Research Institute (BSHRI). For instance, BSHRI plans to develop its clinical and clinical research programs for the study of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, further develop its world-renowned Brain and Body Donation Programs for the study of these and other age-related disorders, and explore new opportunities to work with the rest of Banner and its organizational partners to expand and test new models of elder care. Together, Banner and ASU receive nearly $65 million in current research funding in the neurosciences. That number is expected to rise significantly with the recruitment of new researchers and funding.
