CanopySpeak App was designed to overcome logistical difficulties inherent in accessing current language assistance tools. It enables clinicians to communicate with minority patients who have limited proficiency in English for common, straightforward, routine clinical communication. It includes
a one-touch call button to connect the provider directly to the facility’s
over-the-phone interpreter (OPI) line.
Speak to your LEP Patients in Their Native Languages
Basic medical information exchange occurs daily on a massive scale and there are many low-risk situations in which obtaining a medical interpreter is either unnecessary or or not possible. Despite everyone’s best intention, many providers — like the nurse who needs to regularly check-in on pain level or the OR anesthesiologist who wishes to tell a troubled patient post-op that the surgery went well — find themselves without needed language assistance. Meaningful communication in these scenarios is often absent for the patient, complicating the care.
CanopySpeak contains the largest corpus of pre-translated medical phrases ever developed,
organized by frequently encountered procedures and medical specialties, and available in both text and audio in 15 languages. Tap one of the phrases on CanopySpeak to break the ice with a patient before the interpreter arrives or to clarify basic instructions before drawing blood or doing an exam.
We have heard again and again about the difficulties in reaching over-the-phone interpreters (OPI) and we have made the process less cumbersome. The “Call Interpreter” button provides a seamless channel directly to your facility’s over-the-phone interpreter line. The days of searching for the dual handset phone are over!
