Join us for a healthcare webinar - Feb 3. at 11am CST

Access vs. Equity: A Roadmap to Supercharge Your Language Services.

Patients with Limited English Proficiency (LEP) are among the most vulnerable populations. They experience high rates of medical errors, lower quality-of-care, and poor clinical outcomes compared to English-proficient patients. Isn't now the time to go from providing access to providing equity? Learn how your organization can implement the optimal experience for your patients with LEP while being cost neutral.

OUR SPEAKERS DANIELLE MEDER AND ABIGAIL KATZ WILL:

  • Review the health impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the LEP population
  • Illustrate an equity-based approach to working with LEP patients
  • Provide recommendations on when to use Over-the-Phone Interpretation vs. Video-Remote Interpretation vs. On-Site Interpretation

How would you improve the patient experience in this video?
