Medical Interpreter Services to Implement Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services in Health and Health Care (per The National CLAS Standards)
There is a growing demand for on-site medical interpreter services in Denver, Colorado, and throughout the U.S. to implement and comply with The National CLAS Standards that promote Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services in Health and Health Care. Some of the most in-demand languages requiring medical translation services in Denver, Colorado, are: Mandarin Chinese, Lao, Russian, Polish, Filipino, Nepali, Kunama, Telugu, Bosnian. Language barriers pose additional dilemmas for physicians caring for non-English-speaking patients. Not being able to accurately learn a patient’s symptoms or relay to them their healthcare instructions results in reduced care. Flipping through a foreign language dictionary or relying on someone with only a basic knowledge of a foreign language simply adds to the anxiety and frustration of the patient.
Trusting family members to accurately translate for a patient isn’t effective either. A family member is invested emotionally in the health of their loved one and can be as anxious as the patient about results. This could cause them to inadvertently omit an important piece of information. They are often uncomfortable or embarrassed asking intimate questions that might be required for an accurate diagnosis. Finally, they often don’t have a medical background so they may not even understand some of the medical jargon they’re being asked to translate.

Medical Interpreting Services for Non-English-Speaking Medical Tourists and LEP Patients
The advantage of having an on-site healthcare interpreter isn’t just for the benefit of the international patient taking advantage of medical tourism, or the local LEP patient. It also assists the doctors in getting an accurate assessment of a patient and relaying to them their diagnosis.
There is mounting evidence that people with limited English or no ability to speak English often receive unnecessary tests, often have longer stays at hospitals, and frequently don’t receive the proper follow up care. This means unnecessary expenses and potentially puts the patient at a higher health risk.
