M*Modal Integrates its Speech Understanding Technology with Greenway Medical Technologies’ EHR
M*Modal has entered into a strategic partnership with Greenway Medical Technologies to provide its Speech Understanding technology as part of Greenway’s electronic health record (EHR), practice management, and interoperability solution, PrimeSUITE 2011.
PrimeSPEECH, the first product developed as a result of this partnership, enables physicians to dictate patient information directly within the EHR’s templates and produce structured, encoded and validated clinical content as a direct outcome of their natural workflow.
“We chose M*Modal’s solution because it allows us to go well beyond simple and basic integration of speech recognition as found in most EHR systems,” said James Ingram, MD, chief medical officer at Greenway. “M*Modal shares our conviction that for many providers, speech will be an efficient and effective way to get complete and accurate patient information into the EHR. Together, we can dramatically impact the ability of practices to achieve not just meaningful use, but also real improvements to the quality and continuity of care through meaningful information.”
M*Modal’s Speech Understanding blends advanced speech and natural language processing technologies in one unified platform. M*Modal works with a wide variety of clinical documentation, RIS/PACS, EHR, and other solutions partners who leverage the unique Speech Understanding platform.
“We are seeing tremendous interest in our unique platform right now from leaders like Greenway that are continually advancing clinical solutions to match physician needs and broaden the implementation of EHRs,” said Michael Finke, M*Modal's CEO. “Greenway’s integrated solution is out front in overcoming these challenges and optimizing benefits for its 27,000 healthcare provider users.”
