Many hospitals have limited access to translators, and this poses a serious issue for doctors who need their patients to understand and consent to time-sensitive procedures or treatments. I propose an app that contracts a network of medical experts or qualified students from a variety of linguistic backgrounds who can provide immediate remote translation services, either via video or phone conferences. Personal engagement between doctors, patients, and translators minimizes critical communication errors that could otherwise occur through platforms like Google Translate. It also allows patients to ask questions regarding their condition and course of treatment, and doctors to communicate candidly with their patients without waiting for documents to be translated and processed through an external source.
