Cultivating your team with innovative solutions

All so that you can grow, manage, and deploy your own multilingual workforce in a lasting and sustainable way with maximum impact.

Canopy is different

Canopy is different because we’re a team of healthcare workers and educators working to end the language barrier in healthcare with innovative, evidence-based solutions to support patients, clinicians, and health systems.

Canopy takes a unique approach by challenging healthcare organizations to turn limited language access dollars into investments in the professional development of their workforce.

With support from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), we’ve developed a full 360 language access solution that is transforming language access into an investment in your team and infrastructure.

Innovation with proven results

Part of our comprehensive 360 solution to language access involves conducting, understanding, and interpreting cutting edge research into new viable products to fit the unique needs of varying health systems and individuals.

Some of our innovations include the development of a unique pedagogical framework that employs a learning-by-speaking approach to prepare healthcare workers for real life patient-clinician scenarios and the invention of the only scenario-based medical language proficiency assessment that simulates actual patient-clinician interactions to identify Qualified Bilingual Staff (QBS).

Because of a lack of suitable alternatives, we created our own proprietary Learning Management System (LMS). Built specifically for audio playback and role-play exercises, the CanopyLearn LMS simulates authentic conversations with patients like no other language learning platform.

Case Study

One four-month study with Mt Sinai and Columbia University (2018) demonstrated the effectiveness of Canopy’s unique approach, where users’ medical Spanish capabilities improved by an estimated 132% after completing just 1 of 3 levels of CanopyLearn Medical Spanish, especially in the areas of listening and reading comprehension, medical terminology, cultural competency, and pronunciation.
