When a 500-bed, independent medical center – known for superior patient care – was struggling to communicate with its diverse patient population, it partnered with GLOBO to centralize support and improve language access.
Located in an urban area with a highly-diverse population, the medical center recognized that providing culturally and linguistically appropriate services was central to the delivery of safe, equitable, high-quality patient care. However, the medical center's Director of Patient Relations feared its use of multiple language services vendors was jeopardizing its ability to provide meaningful access throughout the facility.

"If you think hiring a professional is expensive, wait until you hire an amateur." You've probably heard this quote before, and it couldn't be more true when it comes to hiring a language services provider.
On paper and without any real probing, the language services provider offering the lowest per-minute cost may seem like the best option. But the hidden costs of inefficiency, poor service and angry customers are going to lurk under those “great” prices. And they're going to surface... with a vengeance.
To avoid a last-minute language support fire drill, consider these questions to help you better understand a provider’s offerings and find the language services provider that can offer you the most long-term value.
Patients are more empowered than ever before.
And though improved Patient Experience has long been a healthcare industry goal, what it means to be truly patient-focused is challenged daily. With individuals creating communities to explore health solutions and conduct their own research, in addition to healthcare institutions developing patient think tanks and innovation programs, the spirit of the Maker Movement is alive and well in the healthcare space.
In order for these collaborative spaces for patient-provider exchanges and research to be truly useful, everyone needs to speak the same language (literally and figuratively). Understanding and acknowledging differences in cultural background, learning style, and expectations, means that collaborative innovation can take place in a more profound way. And recording patient data in a contextualized manner, means innovation can happen more quickly.
This week, we're interested in what it means to put the patient at the center of innovation. We've collected ideas from around the web on health makerspaces, contextualized data, and decentralized research to get our wheels turning on how to include the 'Patient' as an active participant in 'Patient Experience'.
Transitions in care -- when a patient moves from one setting of care to another -- represent significant vulnerability for all patients. When a patient is Limited English Proficient, opportunities for miscommunication pose an added challenge in transitioning their care safely.
It is no secret that business of healthcare in the US is expensive, inefficient and ripe for disruption. For over a decade, prognosticators have touted the benefits of telemedicine as a key disruptor with visions of a holographic doctor who makes housecalls.
