United Language Group Launches Vaccine Equity Program
New Program is First of Many Equitable Innovations for ULG within the Healthcare Industry Proficiency
United Language Group is formally announcing the launch of their Vaccine Equity Program as part of their Health Outcomes Solutions division. The new division is led by a team dedicated to designing language solutions that improve healthcare outcomes for communities with Limited English Proficiency (LEP) across the United States.
The Vaccine Equity program is meant to spotlight health equity and ensure that all eligible individuals receive the vaccine, regardless of language or cultural barriers. “At United Language Group, we develop patient engagement and bilingual care solutions informed by a deep understanding of the LEP member journey and focused on the Triple Aim,” said Abigail Katz, Director of Health Outcomes Solutions at United Language Group. “Throughout the pandemic, we observed inequities in access to care within linguistically and culturally diverse populations. We want to ensure healthcare organizations know we are here to help” said Katz.
The team is currently working with leading healthcare providers and payers to create innovative language solutions and healthcare consulting offerings. “Our new solutions, which will be formally rolled out in the coming months, have been designed with partner healthcare organizations to ensure that they are readily incorporated into existing processes and structures” said Kristen Giovanis, CEO of United Language Group. “Our new solutions will serve as the new gold standard in equitable care for the more than 27 million LEP people in the United States.”
