M*Modal Inc., a leading provider of clinical documentation and Speech Understanding™ solutions, today announced that Collom and Carney Clinic Association, one of the largest multi-specialty physician group practices serving the East Texas area, has chosen M*Modal Fluency Direct™ to improve how patient information is captured and managed in electronic medical record (EMR) systems.
Collom and Carney Clinic selected M*Modal to provide a flexible speech recognition solution that enables clinical staff to quickly and easily document critical patient information in real-time and from multiple locations, including while away from their offices. The solution allows clinicians to plug into any workstation to instantly capture and store information leveraging the versatility of the Cloud and M*Modal’s advanced Natural Language Understanding (NLU) technology, eliminating errors in speech recognition for a faster documentation and a more satisfying physician experience.
“Our physicians were immediately impressed by the ease of use and the significant difference in accuracy once we upgraded our system from our previous speech recognition provider and began using M*Modal Fluency Direct,” said Robert Haley, CIO, Collom and Carney Clinic. “The implementation process went off without a hitch, and the ability to simply plug-and-play without losing time to get acquainted with technology has been invaluable.”
M*Modal’s leading Speech Understanding solution was designed with the physician in mind and created specifically for healthcare professionals, so it can understand the physician language with extreme precision. M*Modal Fluency Direct's speech understanding capabilities have been refined during the past 10 years with the combined learning from more than 200,000 physicians. Its unique approach to combining both speech recognition and NLU processing in a single step associates the meaning behind each spoken word when the electronic text is created, making a physician's words instantly actionable by electronic systems to drive a clinical workflow process and more.
“We make the process of capturing patient information as easy as possible. And for time-strapped physicians, having the freedom to dictate patient encounters at their own convenience and in a completely natural and conversational manner helps to capture much richer meaning from every patient-doctor encounter,” said Vern Davenport, CEO, M*Modal. “At the end of the day, our solution is simplifying clinicians' interactions with electronic medical records and other clinical systems and driving towards much better outcomes for their patients."
M*Modal Fluency Direct is part of a comprehensive line of M*Modal Fluency™ clinical solutions. Introduced in May 2012, these products are built on M*Modal’s proprietary cloud-based Speech Understanding platform and designed to orchestrate information-enabled dynamic workflows that improve the quality, completeness and compliance of clinical documentation.
