This research project focuses on differences that immigrants face when they encounter a foreign healthcare system, and superficially delves into different articles and psychology experiments that focus on these barriers and how to lessen their impact. From small exchanges to institutional organization, immigrants face many barriers, including a different doctor-patient interaction, health education, and health insurance issues, in addition to differences in daily life and environment, such as religion, language, and cultural traditions. Although the United States cannot change their healthcare system completely, these hurdles can be overcome with more culture-oriented education for healthcare providers, as well as development of patient navigation programs.
