The US is like a microcosm of the wider world with so many ethnic and cultural diversity; more than 50 million US population speak languages other than English and more than 22.3 million people believe they have limited English proficiency.
We have so many highly qualified healthcare professionals who are bilingual and are trained extensively to provide quality healthcare but they are not always at the right places for the patients in need and underutilized in our current system. Minorities and the populations with English as their second language have a wider disparity in overall health and access to healthcare than English speaking patients.
Through a web community of diverse bilingual healthcare professionals by languages and virtual training programs for native languages for these bilingual healthcare professionals, and letting them allow to see patients virtually when possible, we can break down communication barriers and connect to the patients through methods such as video conferencing.
Notice that this should not be limited to just doctors because the issue isn't just limited to what doctors can provide; all qualified healthcare professionals are needed just as much for these patients, just like English speaking patients. If this can be successfully implemented in the United States, it can serve as a model for wider application around the world.
