Healthcare organizations must translate critical information to comply with Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act. However, providing additional translated materials to limited-English proficient (LEP) patients can help you provide a better patient experience and reduce readmission rates.
Beyond posting a Notice of Nondiscrimination and using required taglines, hospitals can better support LEP patients by translating content from various departments. Here are a few healthcare translation project examples:
– language assistance notices
– patient questionnaires & forms
– home care instructions
– diagnoses & treatment summaries
– financial assistance applications/summaries
– payment policies & good faith estimates
– pre-procedure handouts or surgery instructions
– consent letters
– patient records
– instructions for collecting samples
– how to call the clinic
– missed appointment/no contact letters
– nutrition info
– websites, interactive patient portals, & digital content
– printed community outreach materials such as brochures
