Healthcare Interpreting Stakeholders

  • CCHI Community Conversations

  • Support CCHI

    CCHI accepts monetary and in-kind support from private and public organizations and individuals to pursue the administration and development of a national, valid, credible, and vendor-neutral certification program for healthcare interpreters. Thank you!

  • Current Initiatives

    1. We are excited to team up with on a research project to understand the effectiveness of interpreter training approaches. The results of this study will be made publicly available to all. The goal of this study is to collect various demographic factors, training and preparation strategies for certification, and identify correlations that may indicate the most effective use of resources.

    We are asking interpreters of all languages who work in healthcare settings (yes, ASL interpreters, too!) as well as interpreter managers, trainers, etc. to complete this national survey.

    Your participation is of critical importance for the success of this effort. Please don’t wait! Complete the survey now. The survey takes between 15-35 minutes to complete, depending on your role in the healthcare interpreting field. The survey will close on April 30, 2021.

    2. Medical interpreters, like other members of the patient care team, encounter multiple instances of ethical and professional dilemmas during their day-to-day practice. CCHI is managing the Repository of Critical Incident Reports (CIRs) to offer a mechanism for sharing such instances in a systemic and public manner. We encourage all medical interpreters, managers of language services, and interpreter educators to submit CIRs for public review and consideration.

  • National Healthcare Interpreter Registry

    Search this National Registry of CCHI-certified medical interpreters and applicants who are in the process of obtaining certification. This Registry is intended for credential verification purposes. Per CCHI’s  privacy policy, certificants and applicants choose if they wish to display their email address in the Registry; CCHI respects their decision.

  • Disciplinary Sanctions

    The information reported on the Disciplinary Sanctions page includes only cases where the applicant, candidate, or certificant received a publicly reportable sanction. CCHI reserves the right to change which types of sanctions are published on this page.
