Welcome

Welcome to the state of Oregon’s legislatively mandated Registry of qualified and certified Health Care Interpreter (HCIs)!

Oregon Revised Statute(ORS) 413.550 requires the use of certified and qualified HCIs. By law, qualified and certified HCIs have completed 60 hours of required training, demonstrated language proficiencies, applied for and received certification or qualification letters and identification numbers from the Oregon Health Authority. Interpreters who do not meet the above requirements are not approved by the Oregon Health Authority and therefore not listed on the mandated state Registry.
