3M Launches 3M M*Modal Virtual Assistant for Hey Epic!
3M Health Information Systems has launched the 3M M*Modal virtual assistant with the Hey Epic! Voice Assistant in Epic Hyperspace.
3M virtual assistant technology, which currently is offered on Epic's Haiku and Rover mobile platforms, lets clinicians conversationally complete documentation tasks. When powered by 3M virtual assistant technology, clinicians can take Hey Epic! anywhere they go, across multiple devices.
3M virtual assistant technology is built on the cloud-based 3M M*Modal conversational artificial intelligence (AI) platform and leverages advanced artificial intelligence and speech understanding. When 3M virtual assistant technology is used with Hey Epic!, physicians will be able to capture notes through free-form speech and conversationally look up information in the patient chart.
"3M and Epic share a common goal to develop innovative technology that promotes high-quality patient care while improving the day-to-day work life of clinicians," said Garri Garrison, vice president of 3M Health Information Systems, in a statement. "With today's announcement, 3M is able to offer the latest AI-enabled virtual assistant technology to Epic customers to make the documentation process more efficient and further enhance patient-physician interactions."
