What USCRI Des Moines Offers Customers
USCRI Des Moines' Interpretation and Translation Services Program offers trained professionals for all your translation and interpretation needs! Our skilled interpreters are able to express ideas, words, and concepts that may have no equivalent in the target language and can also integrate the different world views they represent while respecting the autonomy of all parties present.
USCRI Des Moines specializes in providing accurate medical interpretation for new Americans. Language barriers lead newcomers to postpone seeking care; language barriers limit comprehension of diagnoses and required treatments, thereby reducing compliance with prescribed medications and treatment regimens. Language barriers have also been associated with increased hospital admissions and lower patient satisfaction. Our interpreters are trained in HIPPA compliance and informed consent.
