Healthcare: Removing Barriers to Medical Success
LATN’s provision of language services (140 languages) in healthcare environments and to meet medical needs is one of our most important charges. For 22 years now, we have assisted communication for inpatient and outpatient programs, local and national hospitals, clinics, insurance companies, behavioral health centers and numerous other health-related events.
As globalization continues, interpreters and translators are being added to healthcare teams with greater regularity. The provision of effective communication between clinicians and their limited or non-English speaking and Deaf or hard of hearing patients is not only mandated by law (1964 Civil Rights Act) in the United States but is simply necessary if proper healthcare delivery and maintenance are to occur.
