Groundbreaking Custom Solution Revolutionizes
Healthcare Industry's Patient-Centered Communication Efforts
ARLINGTON, VA (June 15, 2015) -- Rosetta Stone Inc. (NYSE:RST), the world's leader in technology-based learning solutions, today announced the launch of a new Spanish-language training program poised to transform language access in the healthcare industry. Developed in conjunction with experts from one of the nation's leading healthcare providers, Advanced Spanish for Healthcare provides tailored content aligned to meet the unique needs of healthcare professionals. Rosetta Stone expects the program will be made available to approximately 100,000 healthcare professionals by the end of 2015.
"As a company recognized for providing effective solutions to overcome language and cultural barriers in the aviation, energy, finance and hospitality industries, Rosetta Stone is proud to add healthcare to that list," said Judy Verses, Global President of Rosetta Stone's Enterprise & Education Division. "Our customized language solutions can address industry-specific communication challenges in a way you won't find anywhere else and we're already getting great feedback and seeing some early adopters stepping up to implement this into their programs. With Advanced Spanish for Healthcare, we're creating change in the healthcare field and taking patient-centered communication to the next level."
The Advanced Spanish for Healthcare product was developed in response to the nation's shifting demographics and stricter language access regulations, which ensure equitable access to diverse populations. Content and design for Advanced Spanish for Healthcare were driven by a respected team of experts from Rosetta Stone's Custom Solutions for Business team. The resulting program fills an important need for healthcare employees to better serve the growing Spanish-speaking population and aims to enable regulatory compliance, superior patient satisfaction scores, improved health outcomes, and a significant reduction in expenditures on outside interpreter services.
Added Verses, "Statistics show that there are more than 38 million U.S. residents who speak Spanish at home. With that number continuing to grow, it's critical for many healthcare professionals to speak and understand Spanish in order to provide the best care possible to patients."
