AAEM & AAEM/RSA Announce New Benefit for Members: Canopy Medical Translator App

Posted Monday, March 31st, 2014

FREE Medical Translator app for AAEM and AAEM/RSA members!

Canopy Apps is the winner of multiple awards from the National Institutes of Health. As part of AAEM’s and AAEM/RSA’s partnership with Canopy, members will receive exclusive free access to the popular Canopy Medical Translator app for iOS (and coming soon for Android) through AAEM. The app enables instant communication with patients in Spanish, Chinese, Arabic, Hindi, Korean, and more.

This new benefit will complement the additional professional resources already available to AAEM and AAEM/RSA members.

AAEM secretary-treasurer, Joel Schofer, MD RDMS FAAEM noted, “This new, free member benefit will not only improve patient-physician communication with non-English speaking patients, but will be useful to all of our members who utilize their significant skills and expertise in the international community."

AAEM/RSA president, Meaghan Mercer, DO, added, “This app is a great addition to our member benefits! The ability to communicate easily and effectively is so important and the Canopy Translator will facilitate a positive clinical experience for both physicians and patients."

AAEM members interested in downloading the app for free should visit the newly redesigned AAEM Member’s Center at www.aaem.org/member-center for the access code.
