Crossing the language barrier with the interpreter service
Receiving emergency care is smooth even when the patient and the doctor do not have a common language. Aava uses the interpreter service Tulka.
Tulka is a mobile service that connects the patient and the doctor with an interpreter over the phone. The interpreter, doctor and patient talk on speakerphone. The price of the service is EUR 45/visit.
Emergency care has access to laboratory and X ray services, which supports fast diagnosis and treatment.
