Why are Interpreting and Translation Services so vital to Healthcare?

  • Cost saving – Limited English Speakers without Interpreters incur higher charges and longer stays than other patients, increasing the cost of patient care.
  • Efficiency – Without effective language communication healthcare costs increase. These expenses are currently estimated to cost Healthcare over $400 Million annually nationwide.
  • Accessibility – Limited English speaking patients without interpreting access return to emergency care more frequently than interpreted patients, increasing the cost of patient care.
  • Responsiveness – Many limited English speaking people admit that they wait for an emergency to seek health care, as they fear a situation where they cannot clearly communicate.
  • Patient care – Interpreters ease the tension, anguish and frustration experienced by patients who do not speak English and thus improve the quality of patient care.
  • Compliance – The risk of litigation is significantly higher if care is not provided in line with equality, human rights and regulatory frameworks.
