Medical Tourism Growing up to 25% Annually: Stratus Video Interpreting Urges Florida Healthcare Organizations to Standardize Interpretation Services

Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) February 09, 2015

After receiving $ 5 million from the state legislature to promote medical tourism, the Visit Florida tourism marketing association recently launched a $ 2.5 million grant program to help businesses promote Florida as medical tourism destination (1). In light of these initiatives to capitalize on the burgeoning medical tourism market, Stratus Video Interpreting advises Florida healthcare organizations to standardize their medical interpretation services for foreign visitors with limited English proficiency (LEP). Stratus, which specializes in video remote interpreting (VRI), cautions that a lack of formal interpretation services for LEP patients can have legal and financial consequences.

According to Patients Beyond Borders, todays global medical tourism market is worth between $ 38.5 and $ 55 billion, growing at a rate of 15% to 25% annually, and draws 11 million cross-border patients worldwide (2). While much of Americas medical tourism is outbound, with approximately 1.2 million citizens traveling outside the country for medical treatments (2), the United States is reportedly the second largest inbound medical tourism destination, with an estimated 850,000 to 1.25 million medical tourists annually (3). Floridas beaches, theme parks and cruise ports have made it a popular destination for overseas visitors, and evidence suggests that many medical tourists are among them. One Florida healthcare organizationMiamis Jackson Health Systemestimates that it serves approximately 2,500 international patients each year and grosses an average of $ 78.3 million from international payments (4).

Financial incentives such as the Visit Florida grants and potential income from foreign medical tourists have led numerous healthcare organizations to begin marketing their services internationally. However, since foreign-born patients often have limited English proficiency, healthcare providers need to be mindful of the LEP compliance requirements established under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act. Title VI mandates that any program receiving federal fundingincluding hospitals and other healthcare facilities that accept Medicare or Medicaid paymentsmust ensure people with limited English proficiency have meaningful access to programs and services (5).

Despite these federal requirements, some healthcare organizations have not yet implemented standardized medical interpretation services. Those facilities may rely on unofficial interpreters that have not completed standardized training or certification, such as a patients family members or friends, or they may assume that a patients limited English skills are sufficient to understand health-related conversations. However, any organization or healthcare provider that does not comply with Title VI requirements can be investigated for discrimination against LEP patients, and may be subject to fines and other noncompliance penalties.

In addition, organizations that do not provide access to qualified healthcare interpreters risk jeopardizing their patients health and safety. Numerous studies have shown that professional interpretation services resulted in a significantly lower percentage of medical errors than ad-hoc interpreters or no interpreters (6), thereby helping to avoid potentially life-threatening mistakes and malpractice lawsuits.

The medical tourism industry is clearly growing in popularity and financial potential; and as a Florida-based business, we recognize the value it offers to patients and our state economy, said Sean Belanger, CEO of Stratus Video Interpreting. While we fully support the promotion of Florida medical tourism, I think its important for healthcare organizations to first ensure they have standardized medical interpretation services in place. This not only protects LEP patients, but it also protects the facility from potential discrimination complaints and noncompliance penalties.

Belanger notes that budgetary and staffing limitations are no longer a barrier to providing equal language access, since on-demand video interpretation services allow organizations to connect to qualified medical interpreters as and when needed. Stratus offers video remote interpreting (VRI) services in more than 175 spoken and signed languages, and clients only pay for the actual minutes used.
