Medical and Mental Health

Using an interpreter in healthcare settings allows providers to focus on patient care and for patients to focus on their own health. Research shows health outcomes improve with the use of an interpreter between non-English speaking patients and providers. Two-way communication allows patients to ask questions, raise concerns, and fully understand instructions.
