GE Transitions to Speech Understanding with M*Modal

May 16, 2008 – GE said at SIIM 2008, that the company will partner with M*Modal, incorporating M*Modal’s advanced speech technology, AnyModal Conversational Documentation Services (CDS), as part of GE’s Centricity RIS-IC Reporting module, aiming to transition the industry from speech recognition to speech understanding.

The solution will aim to benefit physicians and radiologists with higher process efficiency, more accurate clinical documentation and dictation without changes in workflow. In addition, the technology is designed to continually learn, so the more it is used, the more accurate it becomes.

The AnyModal CDS and Centricity RIS-IC combination will allow physicians to dictate without any change in workflow. The patented speech understanding services transform the spoken dictation into a draft report, automatically structured and encoded according to the healthcare provider's documentation rules. Documents are generated in a semantically interoperable HL7 CDA format to allow for streamlined report sharing between practitioners and facilities.

Centricity RIS-IC is a powerful Radiology workflow application that provides a broad spectrum of capabilities for managing the administrative and clinical requirements of a radiology department. Its rich feature set is designed to increase overall productivity while enhancing clinical staff’s ability to deliver excellence in patient care.

Features include rules-based multi-organizational scheduling, patient and image tracking, document management, an integrated mammography administration module, multiple diagnostic reporting options, outcome monitoring, and robust interface capabilities. Data analysis and reporting capabilities facilitate operational improvements and decision-making. Centricity RIS-IC is designed to deliver fast, secure access to information that can shorten the revenue cycle, reduce lost charges and denials, prevent underpayments, and optimize performance across the enterprise. The platform-independent web architecture provides an open gateway to multiple desktop operating systems.
