An industry innovator since its founding in 1995, CyraCom revolutionized the delivery of interpretation services in healthcare settings by patenting the first dual-handset phone.

Leveraging Polycom video communications solutions, CyraCom is able to offer remote interpretation services on demand. The service offers a cost-effective way for healthcare facilities to fulfill patient access requirements of the American Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.
