Healthcare Interpreting Stakeholders


CCHI brings together different stakeholders in the medical interpreting profession and industry to ensure quality in healthcare interpreting.

  • CCHI Community Conversations

    The next Community Conversation will be in July 2022. Stay tuned for more info!

  • 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. CCHI is looking for CHI-Spanish volunteers to participate in the content development of the CHI-Spanish exam! Please fill out the application linked below (for the Position, check the box “CHI exam”) and submit it by July 31, 2022.

    We are looking for volunteer Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) who will work remotely from August 15 through October 30, 2022. Please read about the requirements and commitment associated with this project {link coming soon!}.


    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.

    Individuals with suspensions and revocations are strictly prohibited from representing they are credentialed by the CCHI during the period of suspension or revocation.

  • CCHI News Digest

  • Remote Interpreting Resources

    We started collecting this information in the spring of 2020, when the Covid-19 pandemic forced most systems to offer interpreting services in remote modalities.

    If you would like to share your resource, email us at and specify that you’d like to add a remote interpreting resource. Thank you!
