There’s a lot that goes into the name of an App.
In our case, the nature of the problem being solved – overcoming the language barrier – requires urgency, especially in a medical emergency.
When first responders (paramedics, police, flight attendants) respond to a call, every second counts. Now imagine what happens when the patient only speaks a different language. Guessing what’s wrong, waiting for an interpreter, or just getting them to an emergency room, aren’t always the best options. These can mean the difference between life and death.
Receiving language help in the first minute is ideal. And that is where the power of mobile technology comes into play. So, we’ve designed the user experience to match that timeframe. This way responder and patient can interface with the App and communicate with each other as quickly as possible. The fields of mobile health, 9-1-1, and emergency medicine are changing… and our App is part of the solution.
