Cornerstone Health Group Selects M*Modal for Transcription Services
M*Modal, a provider of clinical documentation and Speech Understanding solutions, announced that it will provide Cornerstone Health Group with integrated documentation services and technology, including transcription, iPhone-based mobile dictation, workflow management and Document Insights. M*Modal's solutions will support Cornerstone in its efforts to deliver improved clinical documentation and better patient care.
Cornerstone Healthcare Group offers care for medically complex patients in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, Arizona, and West Virginia. As part of this full-service agreement, M*Modal will provide exclusive transcription services across the company's 19 hospitals.
"Patients we treat at Cornerstone typically suffer from medically complex ailments and require extended recovery time, which means our physicians and staff need flexibility in how they capture and manage clinical documentation," said David Smith, president of Cornerstone Health Group, in a statement. "We were very impressed with M*Modal's ability to deliver a single-source platform for creating accurate patient records and driving clinical documentation improvements."
Cornerstone expects that with the M*Modal technology, it will be able to enhance workflows, free up hospital resources, and streamline the process of capturing patient information. In addition, Cornerstone will be using M*Modal Fluency for Transcription workflow management software, a cloud-based platform that supports dictation through any source, including PCs, traditional phones, mobile phones, dictation stations, and real-time speech recognition methods.
Cornerstone will also leverage M*Modal's speech and analytic tools. With M*Modal's Fluency Flex Mobile app, physicians can dictate straight to their iPhones or iPads without the worry of a lost wireless signal. And M*Modal's Document Insights natural language understanding functionality will enable the clinical documentation improvement teams to proactively identify documentation gaps and shorten the billing cycle.
"M*Modal is enabling organizations like Cornerstone to deliver quality patient care through fast, high-quality transcription services, mobile dictation, and analytic tools," said Scott MacKenzie, CEO of M*Modal, in a statement. "Best of all, we integrate these services using a single technology platform to help physicians and staff provide timely, efficient clinical documentation."
Adventist Health System selects M*Modal as its transcription and front-end speech recognition platform provider.
