Why should your practice use an HCI?
Certified healthcare interpreters provide the assurance of safety, accuracy, respect of boundaries, and transparency required in a healthcare setting. When it comes to facilitating communication in a clinical encounter between parties that don’t speak the same language, there is a large difference between bilingual individuals and professional healthcare interpreters.
Certified healthcare interpreters understand medical terminology in both languages and employ professional techniques to handle the complexities that arise with patients, families, and healthcare providers.
