Health care interpreters facilitate communication between patients with limited English proficiency and their physicians, nurses, lab technicians and other healthcare providers. Using interpreters over the phone or for face to face medical appointment is vital. Interpreters can help reduce inequalities in healthcare access and quality of care between native and non-native speaking patients. Professional and skilled interpreters help in improving clinical outcomes, use of interpreters is feasible given the positive clinical outcomes.
