Webinar to Focus on Culturally Responsive Health Care, CLAS Standards

HMA Information Services (HMAIS) will present the webinar, “Do the Right Thing: Culturally Responsive Health Care and the Federally Mandated CLAS Standards” at 1 p.m. EST Thursday, March 12.

The time for culturally responsive health care is now. Not only is it the right thing to do, but key elements are mandated by the federal CLAS standards (Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services). There is also a strong business case for culturally responsive health care; it drives patient satisfaction, helps improve outcomes, and brings a degree of economic viability to what is essentially an unfunded mandate. Unfortunately, many healthcare organizations find themselves either unfamiliar with the standards or lagging in the development and implementation of strategies for full compliance.

During this webinar, Health Management Associates Principal Dr. Jeff Ring will make the case for socially responsive health care and show your organization how to take the necessary steps to make it work for your patients and your organization.
