THE CURRENT NEED

Health care providers are unable to communicate with patients, and there are no qualified & trained interpreters to bridge that gap. This can result in severe consequences such as, but not limited to; misdiagnosis, excessive use and or misuse of resources, inability to obtain consent, hospital readmissions, and in severe cases, death.
