Labour Ward

Pregnant mothers face even more challenges, due to language barriers, than anyone else. Our research shows that, a lot of the women coming to maternity wards decline the use of interpreters as they find it very compromising of their integrity having to talk to your doctor or midwife through a stranger. They feel their privacy compromises in such situations. There is a huge gender aspect also when it comes to women's health. Helen has proved to be a problem solution here.

In emergency rooms patient visits are highly unpredictable. So when patients requiring translation support shows up and needs immediate treatment, health care staff are left helpless. Due to low availability of interpreters patients often have to wait for a long time and the treatment is delayed as a result. With the assistent of Helen doctors and nurses can quickly have a dialog with the patient, without delays, and provide quick treatment.

Primary Care

Triaging the patients and long queues have always been challenging for primary care clinics. Adding to it are problems associated with poor quality of interpreters, who are not medically certified and the misunderstandings caused by it. Helen provides a perfect platform to help the care clinics to do triaging, history taking, conveying the treatment plan and instructions for the patients while they are in the waiting- or examination room.
