(NYSE: UPH) has reached over 1.5 million minutes of interpretation through its language service, Martti™, at one of New Jersey’s top comprehensive healthcare systems. Martti™ by UpHealth partnered with the healthcare system in October 2021 to provide remote language interpretation services to patients and their companions.

We are thrilled to be impacting more effective, safe, reliable care for millions, and encouraging better health outcomes for all patients and their companions, not just those who are English proficient or those who aren’t hearing impaired.”
