Going 'beyond interpreters' doesn't mean going without interpreters... it means becoming a resource for your patients for everyday, basic needs (that may free up interpreters for more critical communications).
A Qualified Bilingual Staff member can use interpreters if necessary, but they can also interact with LEP patients directly using their medical Spanish skills, allowing them to directly provide better care without depending so heavily on medical interpreters.
CanopyCredential is the first-ever standardized assessment to measure medical Spanish proficiency and certify the bilingual healthcare providers. It is specifically designed to assist the healthcare systems in qualifying bilingual medical staff to be compliant with Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act.
