Introducing CanopyCompliance: a one-hour professional development course to educate medical staff and students on the regulatory requirements governing language access in healthcare.
CanopyCompliance employs a scenario-based teaching method that mimics real-life encounters with limited English proficient (LEP) patients.
Specifically designed to assist healthcare facilities in meeting bilingual communication requirements such as Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act.
Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) stipulates that hospital staff who speak to patients in languages other than English must demonstrate that they are able to “effectively, accurately, and impartially communicate directly with individuals with limited English proficiency”.
