What’s the best way to conduct a phone call with a patient who doesn’t speak English?

Sometimes you'll need to speak to a patient on the phone who does not speak English. Maybe you have to schedule or confirm and appointment or give results of medical tests or labs. Whatever the case may be, there are a few options to make sure your communication is clear and appropriate for the situation.

  • Using an on-demand telephone interpreting account
  • Scheduling a conference call using a local interpreter
  • Providing information to a local interpreter for them to perform the call

Each of these options is appropriate in different circumstances. Watch the video or read our blog to learn which might be right for you.
