InDemand Interpreting, which helps non-English speaking and deaf patients understand medical information at the hospital, today announced an $8.8 million round to help fuel product growth and bring on more marketing resources.
Founded by Daniel and Elena Pirestani in 2007, the Wenatchee, Wash.-based company delivers video interpreting services to hospitals, clinics and physician practices. InDemand also offers a variety of other solutions, from hardware to document translation to VOIP telephone interpreting.
“Our vision is that every patient should receive the highest quality healthcare, regardless of language, cultural background or disability,” CEO Jim Ewel said in a statement. “We’re very excited to use this funding to realize our vision and to continue our mission of helping our healthcare partners deliver quality healthcare to deaf and limited-English proficient patients.”
The round was led by Health Enterprise Partners of New York with participation from existing investors. Rick Stowe, General Partner at Health Enterprise Partners, has joined InDemand’s Board of Directors.
