Care to Translate is a digital medical translator for healthcare personnel.
We do not think that language barriers should be an obstacle to good healthcare.
Care to Translate strengthens patient safety
Care to Translate offers medically correct communication with translations verified by native speakers. It can be used in acute situations or in daily work at the ward.
Care to Translate protects patient integrity
Our tool helps the patient understand who takes care of them, what is happening and why.
Care to Translate decreases costs
Care to Translate reduces the risk of misdiagnosis, malpractice, complications, readmissions and hospitalization time by providing safer and more accurate communication between patients and healthcare providers.
Care to Translate serves as a complement to human interpreters in healthcare and is available 24/7 in your smart device. This tool can be used in any situation when something needs to be communicated fast. We care about the patient’s integrity and offer a medically correct communication with translations in the following languages:
Why our app is needed: Language barriers can have serious consequences
There is an increased risk of misdiagnosis and maltreatment when language barriers exist between the patient and the healthcare personnel.
Lack of or incorrect communication itself can lead to complications for the patient.
Prolonged hospital stay
Patients with limited language proficiency usually stay longer in the emergency room (approximately 30 minutes) and stay 4 days longer in hospitals than the average patient.
Patients with limited language proficiency have 60% higher inclination to seek emergency care than the average patient. They are at 50% higher risk of being hospitalized and 20% more likely to seek care within 72 hours after discharge.
All of the above increase costs for healthcare providers. In addition, healthcare professionals are likely to take more samples and do more research on patients who do not master the language.
The goal is to make healthcare better for all: Care to Translate, earlier ‘Språk i vården’, was founded as a non-profit in the fall of 2015 by medical students from Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, and today it has become one of the most used translation tools in the Swedish healthcare sector.
However, the issue that ‘Språk i vården’ was addressing affects people all over the world, and to be able to work on it with full devotion, the company Care to translate AB was formed in 2018. The Company has received grants for the Swedish innovation authority Vinnova and been accepted to Sweden’s number one incubator Sting Accelerate.
Care to Translate can be tailored for all types of departments. Download our app CTT Clinic and contact us for more information: email@example.com
