Clear communication is a cornerstone of patient safety and quality healthcare. Unlike the business sector, which frequently turns to translations as a way to enter new markets, healthcare organizations are bound by federal, state and industry mandates to translate all vital health materials for the multilingual communities they already serve.
APP has extensive experience in healthcare translation from hospital signage and consent forms to evidence of coverage manuals and health promotion materials. Entrusting your vital documents to an experienced language services provider who is knowledgeable about your industry and audience is the first step toward quality multilingual communications.
Managed Care is primarily concerned with reducing the cost of providing healthcare benefits and improving quality of care. APP has translated health education materials in more than a dozen languages on topics ranging from high blood pressure to physical rehabilitation to the effects of marijuana usage. We understand that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and we strive to make sure that your patients have meaningful access to health information in their preferred languages.
Hospitals occupy the front lines of patient care and safety. Signage, registration forms, informed consents, and patient care materials all require an expert understanding of language as well as practical issues to convey important information across cultural divides. Better communication in hospitals means better care for patients, regardless of language.
Insurance details can be tricky. Evidence of Coverage manuals contain a mix of marketing, legal, and health-related language that requires an adherence to contractual and regulatory language while at the same time rendering the information understandable to those who may not even be familiar with the American healthcare system.
APP has translated patient care and benefits-related materials for some of the country’s most prominent health insurers. Contact us today to find out what we can do for you and the patients you serve.
