A GetWellNetwork language pack includes all of the base content that is available with the system, including menu items and patient alerts as well as embedded third-party content items that are available in the language. GetWellNetwork also offers professional services to assist clients with translating any custom content that they have created into Spanish and/or Arabic in order to complete the patient experience available through the system.

"The community demographics surrounding St. Joseph Mercy Oakland are very diverse with the highest concentration of Hispanic/Latinos in the Detroit Metropolitan area," said Barbara Hertzler, Chief Operations Officer of St. Joseph Mercy Oakland, Michigan. "By deploying the Arabic and Spanish language packs of the GetWellNetwork system, we are now able to directly connect with a greater percentage of our patients right from the start of their hospital stay, providing them with an experience that is more relevant and valuable to them as individuals."

Hospitals face a daunting challenge of providing in-language support to their patient populations, including federal laws that ensure equal medical treatment for all patients regardless of their English proficiency. In response, many hospitals have expanded their staffs of professional interpreters and added interpreter training. Nationwide, 15 percent of health care practitioners seek external interpreting services to talk to Spanish
