Aprima Medical Software announced today new Spanish language functionality for the Aprima Patient Portal and Aprima Mobile app for physicians, enhancing the healthcare experience for the country’s largest segment of non-English speakers. Aprima is one of the first U.S. healthcare companies to offer a Spanish-language portal and mobile app, which are designed to boost patient engagement and communication between Aprima medical providers and their Spanish-speaking patients.
Native Spanish speakers account for 13% of the U.S. population, or about 41 million people. Until the release of Aprima’s Spanish-language capabilities, providers have had few options to engage these patients in their native language.
“We know that patient outcomes are enhanced when patients are more engaged in their own care,” said Aprima CEO Michael Nissenbaum. “By offering a Spanish language alternative in our Patient Portal, more patients will have the opportunity to communicate online with their physicians, to access educational information in Spanish, and to view and update their medical records. More patients will be able to participate in the healthcare decision-making process, which will lead to higher patient satisfaction and contribute to better health.”
