ClariVita’s very own Mara Cawthorn took time to inform us why it is so important to hire a certified medical translator. Certified medical translators have been trained and assessed, providing them with a vast knowledge of medical terminology. This leads to fewer errors in communication, relating in shorter patient doctor interactions and shorter hospital stays. Having been trained in the medical protocol, which is just as important as medical terminology, they are HIPPA compliant and remain objective in the role as a medical interpreter. Certified medical translators know how and when to clarify, accurately and completely interpreting everything that is being said. These are a few benefits of hiring a certified medical translator that lead to increased patient satisfaction, and decreased readmission rates.
