The Canopy & ACEP Partnership

Canopy Innovations, Inc. envisions a world without communication barriers; our mission is to improve the quality of care for language-minority patients and to support the clinicians who serve them. Through the establishment of an Affinity Partnership, ACEP and Canopywork together to raise awareness in the healthcare community about the communication barrier, to equip frontline clinicians and administrative professionals alike with highly effective tools, and to ultimately elevate the quality of care for the underserved communities.



Canopy’s medical Spanish course was developed with innovation grant awards from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The course teaches specialized medical concepts and terminology across a wide spectrum of commonly-encountered clinical scenarios. It enables providers to establish a rapport with their Spanish-speaking patients, utilizing essential conversation skills to eliminate communication friction with Spanish-speaking patients.  Clarity and mutual understanding in patient-provider communication are absolute imperatives in providing great patient care.
