Healthcare organizations have a challenging task: provide the best possible care for patients while streamlining operations and controlling costs. With so many moving parts in a constantly evolving industry, it can be easy to overlook the needs of marginalized patient populations, such as the Deaf/Hard of Hearing and patients with Limited English Proficiency (LEP). And that’s a serious problem. Language barriers in healthcare are a leading cause of health inequity with serious consequences for patients, providers, and care organizations.
Care organizations need clear solutions. That’s where our white paper comes in!
