The challenge of providing quality care increases in difficulty when your patient speaks a language other than English. Over-the-phone interpreting is the most cost-effective and confidential method for communicating critical care information with limited English proficiency patients in more than 150 foreign languages.
This service will bridge the language and cultural barrier for limited English proficiency patients and will help people with diverse backgrounds communicate during important health care encounters. Propio will partner with you to deliver consistent health care and ensure patient safety. Propio has been delivering on-demand interpreting at the point of care since 1998. The interpreters are internally certified and receive ongoing specialized training for the challenging and critical task of facilitating understanding in health care settings.
When you call the toll-free Propio number, you will be connected to a skilled interpreter in 30 seconds or less. There is no need to make an appointment, and you will only be billed for actual minutes used. There is no set-up charge or monthly service fees.
