Abstract

According to the Office of Refugee Resettlement, between the years of 1989-2013, 6310 refugees have settled in Vermont. Studies have found that when non-English speaking patients receive professional interpreting services, there is an increase in the recommendation of preventive health services and a decrease in the investigative tests utilized. Currently at UVMMC, there isn't an easy and accessible way for healthcare providers to obtain health information in different languages for patients. Thus, the aim of this project was to create an easy and accessible way for healthcare providers to access health information in different languages and then promote its utilization.
