M*Modal Catalyst for Quality Now Available
Clinical documentation services and Speech Understanding provider M*Modal has announced the availability of M*Modal Catalyst for Quality.
Using M*Modal's advanced natural language understanding, M*Modal Catalyst for Quality represents a step forward in enabling health information managers and clinical documentation improvement (CDI) specialists to quickly and easily access data buried in remotely stored electronic health records (EHRs), dictated notes, and other medical documentation.
"M*Modal Catalyst for Quality is all about capturing the entire patient story, combining transcription and front-end speech recognition with EHR data and making it immediately usable for driving quality improvements," said Mike Raymer, M*Modal's senior vice president of Solutions Management, in a statement. "By building a complete, more insightful patient record, M*Modal's solution readily identifies CDI measures, summarizes all evidence, and creates workflows to target and address deficiencies early in the process."
The majority of many healthcare organizations' data is captured in a traditional narrative or unstructured form. Until now, providers have been extremely limited in their ability to identify, beyond simple keyword searches, the deeper context and meaning within notes documenting the physician-patient encounter. M*Modal Catalyst for Quality uncovers that information, allowing users to easily identify and implement quality measures for better productivity, control costs, patient care, and outcomes.
M*Modal Catalyst for Quality comes preloaded with industry-standard CDI rules, and provides a highly flexible platform for medical coders and quality managers to address other measures without costly software upgrades. This enables hospitals, clinics, and practices to more easily transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 and tackle a wide variety of information management needs.
The solution is part of the M*Modal Catalyst portfolio of products and can be fully integrated with the M*Modal Fluency family of speech understanding solutions. This integration maximizes M*Modal's cloud-based speech understanding technology. More applications within the M*Modal Catalyst product family are expected to be announced in the coming months.
