St. Lukes University Health Network to Deploy M*Modal
St. Luke's University Health Network in central Pennsylvania has selected M*Modal's artificial intelligence-powered, cloud-based speech recognition and Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) solutions. St. Luke's will deploy the technology across seven hospitals and more than 200 outpatient facilities serving patients in nine counties in two states.
M*Modal Fluency Direct will help St. Luke's standardize clinical documentation workflows across the enterprise and enable its more than 1,300 clinicians to document directly and accurately in their electronic health record systems from any location, using any device. Adopting a single-vendor approach, St. Luke's University Health Network will consolidate EHR systems and migrate its ambulatory practices to Epic by 2018. During this transition, physicians will be able to continue creating complete and compliant notes using the M*Modal documentation system for improved EHR adoption and physician productivity.
"We are pleased to partner with M*Modal to revitalize our documentation processes and maximize our Epic EHR investment," said Dr. James Balshi, chief medical information officer at St. Luke's University Health Network, in a statement. "M*Modal's cloud-based but not cloud-dependent platform with flexible deployment options can support multiple departments and specialties for a cohesive documentation strategy."
In addition to M*Modal Fluency Direct, St. Luke's will also deploy M*Modal CDI Engage to improve clinical and financial outcomes. M*Modal CDI Engage automates the identification and correction of common specificity deficiencies.
"We look forward to providing our artificial intelligence-driven solutions to St. Luke's University Health Network to improve the quality and efficiency of their clinical documentation and deliver a tangible return on investment," said Scott MacKenzie, CEO of M*Modal, in a statement. "As we continue our work with such premier healthcare organizations, our goal is to help ensure that their clinical documentation more accurately and consistently reflects the high-quality patient care their physicians deliver every day."
