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”.

The "Gray Area" of Language Access Compliance

Hospital administrators have a tough time translating complicated laws and regulations into everyday process for staff, especially when they already struggle to effectively communicate internal policies.

A lack of general regulatory awareness often forces staff to work in a gray area of compliance regulations, possibly putting their institution at risk. 

This customizable course covers federal regulations around language access as well as best practices to help organizations avoid those gray areas.
