M*Modal Fluency for Imaging Reporting Adds Speech Recognition Capabilities

New reporting abilities enhance quality reporting, support ACR Imaging 3.0 initiative

December 10, 2014 — M*Modal announced Computer-Assisted Physician Documentation (CAPD) real-time feedback capabilities for its M*Modal Fluency for Imaging Reporting software. CAPD integrates speech recognition, structured multimedia reporting and automated decision-support tools to help radiologists improve documentation quality and ensure accurate reimbursements.

Fluency for Imaging Reporting with CAPD automatically notifies radiologists of deficiencies in real time, requesting clarification or additional information as the report is being created.  These feedback categories include:

  • Actionable findings: Feedback loops automatically detect critical findings and initiate appropriate workflows. M*Modal’s solution provides alerts for over 20 critical findings. 
  • Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) measures: Radiologists can be notified of non-compliance with PQRS to ensure they provide the required information to receive incentive payments and adjustments.
  • Recommendations: Fluency for Imaging supports Fleischner Society recommendations for lung nodules, providing feedback and guidelines for pulmonary and sub-solid nodules detected by computed tomography (CT) imaging.
  • Document completeness:  New coding requirements in the forthcoming ICD-10 standard greatly increase the number of codes used for billing and reimbursement. With Fluency for Imaging, radiologists receive notifications within their workflow on gender and laterality inconsistencies, as well as reporting requirements for organs as part of an abdomen ultrasound.

The software can also auto-populate clinical content into the radiology report from multiple electronic health records, (EHRs), radiology information systems (RIS) and picture archive and communication systems (PACS), as well as provide radiologists automated feedback at the time of reporting, helping increase patient safety and improve productivity.

M*Modal demonstrated these reporting enhancements at the 2014 Radiology Society of North America’s (RSNA) annual meeting Nov. 30-Dec. 5 in Chicago.
