At Premier Breakthroughs 2021, GLOBO's panel of language access experts shared how health systems that foster cultural competency can improve outcomes for the limited-English speaking population and champion health equity across their organizations.
An estimated one in five U.S. residents — born both inside and outside the U.S. — speak a language other than English at home. As the U.S. population becomes increasingly diverse, there’s no room for biases in healthcare. Still, limited-English speaking patients are more likely to be hospitalized longer, be misdiagnosed, or experience medical errors. In this session, join GLOBO's panel of language industry experts to learn how health systems that foster cultural competency can improve outcomes for the limited-English speaking population and champion health equity across their organizations.
"More than 66 million people in the U.S. speak a language other than English at home. As our country becomes more diverse, it’s imperative that health systems get on board with fostering cultural competence within their organizations. Without it, America’s health is at risk."
- Gene Schriver, Founder & CEO of GLOBO
