Due to the recent Covid-19 pandemic outbreak around the world, there is a tremendous increase in patients around the world. Currently, Elite Asia is ranked number 5 in English Proficiency Index internationally. However, we do have a big percentage of limited English proficient patients (LEP Patient) who have limited ability to read, speak, write, or understand English. A big percentage came from our boomer generation in Singapore.
Public health scares can be difficult and stressful for everyone, but it can cause even more strain for Limited English Proficient (LEP). In a situation like this, if there is poor planning to provide language access it can lead to miscommunications that have clinical consequences, health disparities for LEP patients and unfortunate health outcomes.

With over 350 plus languages, it allows you to quickly connect to a qualified professional interpreter within 10 seconds at a fraction of the cost of traditional onsite interpreting.
When treating Limited English Proficient (LEP) patients, it is highly recommended for healthcare providers to add Over the Phone interpreter to the communication session, which they are able to schedule, organize and coordinate interpretation appointments with various interpreters.
