LanguageMate, the leader in developing innovations for patient-provider communication, will be unveiling the next-generation of its Canopy Medical Language Platform at the American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC) Annual Meeting from November 4th through 9th in Denver, CO. Last year, LanguageMate announced the launch of Canopy Medical Spanish, an e-learning program designed to help medical professionals deliver care that is linguistically competent and culturally sensitive to their diverse patient populations.
Canopy Medical Spanish is an NIH-funded e-learning platform developed specifically to meet the needs of busy medical students, residents and practicing professionals. Using the highly effective Authentic Context Tutoring (ACT) methodology, Canopy‘s multi-level curriculum offers more than 40 hours of interactive learning experience and guides users through the acquisition, retention and application phases of the communicative skills development process in medical Spanish.
At the upcoming AAMC conference, LanguageMate is very pleased to be unveiling the mobile app extension to the Canopy platform. The Canopy Mobile app offers several exciting new features, including:
1. Learning on-the-go, bringing a highly interactive learning experience to your mobile device for access anywhere
2. Clinical Phrasebook, offering a dynamic, audio-enabled set of clinical modules to help you interact with your patients in 10 languages including Spanish, Chinese, and Russian
“The Canopy Mobile App has been developed in response to the strong demand from our users for on-the-go access to the web-based medical Spanish course,” said Bill Z Tan, Founder and CEO of LanguageMate. “In addition, the Clinical Translator feature is a great tool for improving the quality of care in a wide variety of patient-provider interactions.”
LanguageMate will be exhibiting at booth #305 at the AAMC Conference, where visitors can see a live demo of the Canopy platform and sign up for a free trial of the system for their medical schools, hospitals and health centers.

With an increasingly high Spanish-speaking patient population in the greater Kansas City area, and the need to accommodate more students per course, KUMC needed a turnkey solution that was not only affordable, but also accessible. Students and staff members alike will have access to the institution-wide license.
Patricia A. Thomas, MD, KUMC’s Associate Dean for Cultural Enhancement and Diversity, anticipates positive results from the course. “It will allow wide-spread access to students, faculty and staff on all of our campuses to have the opportunity to learn medical Spanish at their own pace and on their own time,” Thomas said.
In addition to providing a flexible option for learning medical Spanish, Canopy® provides busy students with in-depth personalized feedback and a robust set of exercises. LanguageMate® Director of Product Management, Brian Yarnell, speaks to the benefits of the Canopy® platform relative to KUMC’s needs, stating, “The administration wanted a course that could accommodate more students, offer more material, and be easier on the students’ schedules. Through the bite-size chunks of on-demand lessons, Canopy® was the solution for both students and faculty at the institution.”
