Last week, GLOBO was joined by Dr. Christina Cordero of the Joint Commission to discuss how health systems can navigate patient-centered communication standards during the shift toward virtual care.
While the ways in which patients access care has seen a dramatic shift, those efforts aren't always equitable. As the healthcare industry rushed to improve virtual care options, many solutions have not been designed with the limited-English proficient (LEP) population in mind. As the world adapts to the “new normal,” it’s critical for us to create experiences that don’t leave the 25 million Americans considered to be LEP in the dark.
