Who We Are

Canopy Innovations is an NYC-based digital health company that is transforming the way our healthcare system communicates with underserved patients. The language barrier undermines quality of care for the 27+ million patients who have limited-English proficiency, and creates enormous workflow and financial constraints to the health delivery organizations that serve them. With support from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Canopy has developed a suite of products to tackle these challenges.


Perspectives on the Language Barrier in Healthcare


What Users Are Saying about Our Technologies

“Canopy provides language assistance at the tips of your fingers. The days of looking for the language phone are over.”
— Dr. Niket Sonpal, Chief Medical Resident, Lenox Hill Hospital, NY
“Canopy Medical Translator allows me to communicate with my diverse patient population efficiently and effectively right off my phone!”
— Dr. Poonam Desai, Emergency Medicine Physician, New York Presbyterian
Canopy is a bit of an icebreaker, putting people at ease and respecting the fact that their language is not my first language. I can sense that patients feel much more confident answering questions.”
— Michael J Walz, MD, University of Minnesota
Canopy was great! The speaker phone quality was better than the hospital wireless phones, and the interpreter number works more reliably than our video translation system, by far.”
— Residency Program Director, UConn Health
