M*Modal Selected by United Hospital System
M*Modal, a provider of clinical documentation and speech understanding solutions, today announced that United Hospital System has selected the M*Modal Fluency family of cloud-based solutions to deliver advanced clinical documentation to its health system and physicians.
As part of the agreement, United Hospital System will roll out M*Modal Fluency Direct, M*Modal Fluency for Transcription, and M*Modal Fluency for Imaging to its facilities across Wisconsin and northern Illinois.
"We are proud to be selected by United Hospital System to deliver industry-leading clinical documentation solutions to two hospital campuses and all regional facilities," said Vern Davenport, chairman and CEO of M*Modal, in a statement. "Our cloud-based technology, combined with United Hospital System's reputation for providing superior and compassionate patient service in the clinical setting, will allow them to continue to be a preferred partner of physicians in its region."
United Hospital System had been using an aging voice capture and transcription platform and was seeking advanced technology that included speech recognition and understanding to improve productivity of in-house transcriptionists while boosting physician adoption and EHR usability. After conducting a diligent search, United Hospital System determined that M*Modal's Fluency for Transcription would help deliver an exceptional portfolio of technology solutions and transcription services that would help document optimal patient care, improve financial performance and meet the business objectives for all of its facilities.
"M*Modal Fluency Direct voice-enables our electronic health record, improving the accuracy of clinical outcomes documentation using the power of the physician's spoken word," said Toni Kuehl, director of United Hospital System, in the statement. "Because of its usability, the technology is able to complement physician workflow and give doctors time back in their day to focus on patients. The M*Modal Fluency Direct solution will assist our physicians in creating a higher quality clinical document with instant turnaround time."
In addition, the M*Modal Fluency for Imaging application will offer United's radiologists intuitive technology through speech-driven diagnostic reporting, allowing conversational speech for enhanced ease of use, improved accuracy, and greater user satisfaction. Structured reporting and integrated productivity tools allow faster creation and turnaround of diagnostic imaging interpretations. Physician dictation is transformed into electronic documents that are structured, clinically encoded, searchable, and shareable.
Announced in May, M*Modal Fluency is a line of cloud-based clinical solutions for dictation capture, speech recognition editing, and document distribution to optimize clinical information workflow, speed up the revenue cycle, help achieve HIPAA and regulatory compliance, as well as help meet meaningful use and electronic health record requirements.
