Speaking Together: National Language Services Network

Speaking Together is a national initiative aimed at improving the delivery of language services to reduce health care disparities faced by patients across America. This program, the first of its kind to integrate quality improvement techniques with hospital-based language services, demonstrates how communities with linguistically diverse patient populations can deliver high quality language services to those patients that need them. Speaking Together began as a 10-hospital collaborative learning network, and although the hospital collaborative component came to a close in May 2008, the program and its lessons continue to inform other efforts.
