CCHI brings together different stakeholders in the medical interpreting profession and industry to ensure quality in healthcare interpreting.
Join us for Community Conversation 9 on July 22, 2021 at 2:30 pm ET. It will focus on language access policies and professional advocacy. Registration coming soon!
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!
1. We are excited to team up with InterpreterEd.com 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.
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.
Individuals with suspensions and revocations are strictly prohibited from representing they are credentialed by the CCHI during the period of suspension or revocation.
