Language Services for Healthcare

As the overall U.S. healthcare market shifts from a place of quantity of services rendered to quality of services, TransPerfect understands the importance of working with health plans to ensure members who are limited English proficient are engaged proactively with their healthcare provider while they are healthy. We help you communicate with your members so they can make better-informed decisions about their health.

Engage limited English proficient members with language services for healthcare

At the heart of what TransPerfect does is create a mechanism whereby we help managed care organizations engage their non-English-speaking populations on the front end through our services. We've found that our turnkey medical benefits interpretation services allow for an overall increase in member engagement by 30%, which in turn helps to decrease overall medical costs to payers and members by up to 15%.

CASE STUDY: BLUE CROSS BLUE SHIELD

Blue Cross Blue Shield
achieved a 5-star rating

TransPerfect understands the importance of helping healthcare plans achieve 5 stars on their CMS call center monitoring measures. Achieving 5 stars allows healthcare companies to further engage their current limited English proficient members, attain new members within the diverse population, and increase overall reimbursement from CMS.

Blue Cross Blue Shield was looking for a language services provider that would have interpreters who were readily available and familiar with the terminology of Parts C & D of Medicare. By partnering with TransPerfect Connect, Blue Cross Blue Shield was not only able to fulfill all of CMS's foreign language requirements, but also achieve a 5-star rating.

"Contracting with TransPerfect Connect meant an end to my search in finding an interpretation vendor that really understands the seriousness of the CMS requirements to provide top-notch language services for Medicare beneficiaries. I am extremely satisfied with this partnership that also allowed us to achieve 5 stars on the CMS Call Center Monitoring measure across multiple states."
