Creating healthy connections
47 million people in the United States report that they speak a language other than English at home, half of whom report they speak English less than “very well.” They are considered to have limited English proficiency (LEP), a language barrier that puts the health of many LEP patients and that of their communities at risk by affecting their ability to access care and communicate with their health providers.
The use of professional interpreters:
•Improves the quality of health care for LEP patients who benefit from an accurate flow of communication.
•Decreases the risk of misunderstandings, misdiagnoses, and inadequate informed consent that elevate the risks of lawsuits and unnecessary expenses.
•Increases interaction with the patient’s preferred language.
•Decreases medical staff frustration and increases productivity when caring for patients who have LEP.
