In the wake of the recent federal health care regulations that went into effect on September 23rd, 2010, it’s now more critical than ever to make sure that client health care information is distributed clearly and in a timely fashion.
As more people become eligible for health care under the new laws, health care organizations and insurance providers will find that they are faced with greater challenges regarding language access. And as these reforms become part of our legal fabric, new and updated information must be prepared and distributed to everyone–proficient English speakers, non-English speakers and limited English speakers alike.
How Can Avantpage help?
Avantpage has highly qualified translation teams in place consisting of certified linguists who are trained specialists in threshold languages including Arabic, Armenian, Cambodian (Khmer), Chinese, Farsi, Hmong, Korean, Russian, Spanish, Tagalog and Vietnamese. We offer the most competitive pricing in the translation industry, and our AvantFlow online translation management system, experienced project managers, translation memory tools, and experienced linguistic teams ensure that our translation services consistently exceed industry standards and requirements.
To meet increased workloads due to the health care regulations, Avantpage has recently ramped up our translation capacities, improved processing volume and timelines, and enhanced our quality control and service abilities. Whatever our clients’ needs, we will deliver–swiftly, accurately and within budgetary constraints.
Questions, confusion and misunderstandings are bound to be common offshoots of these sweeping regulatory changes. It’s critical that you have procedures in place – including accurate, high-quality translation services -to help alleviate frustration and ensure that your clients understand the wording of these changes, how they will be affected, and the timing of all the different reforms. Written materials, websites and electronic correspondence must all be kept current, reflecting new information as it is made available by the government.
