)-- The American Academy of Urgent Care Medicine (AAUCM) has partnered with Canopy Apps to bring the Canopy Medical Translator app to AAUCM members. Canopy is the winner of awards from the NIH to create a next-generation medical translator app, enabling healthcare providers to communicate with patients quickly and accurately in Spanish, Chinese, Arabic, and more. With the Canopy translation app, AAUCM members have the ability to improve their medical Spanish skills and get bilingual certification by taking the National Certification for Bilingual Healthcare Providers exam.
Canopy provides access to information across language barriers to improve healthcare. Our technologies enable healthcare providers to communicate with patients who speak different languages. Canopy is the winner of awards from the National Institutes of Health. Our tools are used by institutions such as Memorial Sloan Kettering, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, and Visiting Nurse Service of New York. Improving patient-provider communication across language barriers is proven to improve health outcomes, including lowering misdiagnoses and defensive medicine practices, and increasing treatment adherence rates.
The American Academy of Urgent Care Medicine (AAUCM) is a national organization which represents thousands of physicians who practice urgent care medicine in various clinical settings throughout the United States. The purpose of the AAUCM is to contribute to the field of urgent care medicine in the areas of professional growth, scientific and medical research, and medical education, all to improve the overall quality of medical care. Our mission is to advance the profession of urgent care medicine by elevating its standards through education, basic and advanced training, and to encourage physicians to seek board certification in urgent care medicine.
