Health Information Translations

Health Information Translations : "Health Information Translations is a collaborative initiative to improve health education for limited English proficiency patients. This site is intended to be a valuable resource for helping health care professionals teach health education to those patients with limited English skills. By leveraging the combined skills and experience of 3 of Central Ohio's largest health care organizations, this project will produce some of the most valuable resources for health care education in diverse communities."

Even though India is a leading IT power and exports medical skills and people to the West, it's a tragedy that there is such little good quality information for patient education written in Indian languages on the Web. Ironically, it's easier to find Hindi materials for patient education on a US website than on an Indian
website !

  1. I checked the site and there is a wealth of information there. As a professional who often interprets between doctors and patients, I must say this is an excellent idea.
