Benefit to using LanguageLinc

Our interpreters undergo extensive training and independent assessment in the following areas:

  • Language fluency in English and target native language
  • Interpreting skills
  • Interpreting protocols and HIPPA compliance
  • Industry terminology and professionalism required for specific settings

Using LanguageLinc Interpreters promotes improved service delivery, access to services, and safeguards your company through compliance and liability issues. An increasing number of governmental and regulatory compliance policies require your facility to have interpreters in place to ensure limited English-speaking patients have the same access to quality services as do English-speaking patients.

Key compliance policies which service providers need to adhere to include:

  • Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (OCR Guidance of 2000)
  • OMH CLAS standards, HIPAA, NCQA and JCAHO accreditation standards.
