INTERPRETING SERVICES IN PERSON & OVER THE PHONE
47 million people in the United States speak a language other than English at home. These individuals are considered to have limited English proficiency (LEP). That is, they are not able to speak, read, write, or understand the English language at a level that permits them to interact effectively with health care providers.
This language barrier puts the health of many LEP individuals, and that of their communities at risk by affecting their ability to access care and communicate with their providers. These patients have less access to a usual source of care, and lower rates of physician visits and preventive services.
In contrast, language concordance between patients and physicians increases patient satisfaction, patient-reported health status, and adherence with medication and follow-up visits.
