Fluency Flex Mobile Solution lets physicians document patient encounters at the point of care

October 17, 2013 — M*Modal, a provider of clinical documentation services and Speech Understanding solutions, announced a medical dictation application for iPhone mobile digital devices, expanding the company’s mobility solutions.  The M*Modal Fluency Flex Mobile application lets doctors quickly and accurately record clinical notes during patient encounters for easy integration with electronic health record systems (EHRs), increasing physician productivity and documentation quality.

M*Modal will be demonstrating its iPhone application at the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) conference on Oct. 26-30 in Atlanta.

M*Modal Fluency Flex Mobile is a cloud-based application that connects doctors with hospital information systems to access patient data and dictate notes on the go. The application captures high-quality audio which is converted to text using the M*Modal Fluency for Transcription speech engine for fast turnaround time and integration in provider workflows and clinical documentation systems.

“M*Modal Fluency Flex Mobile lets our physicians work when and where they want to work,” said Michael Sanders, M.D. and medical director, St. Dominic-Jackson Memorial Hospital in Jackson, Miss. “Physicians appreciate being able to use their own smartphones, especially when a dictation device is hard to find or not readily available. In addition, the app provides a secure platform that ensures patient information remains private. This flexible dictation platform provides mobility and freedom that our physicians need and appreciate.”

M*Modal’s iPhone application addresses the growing preference of physicians to use smartphones in the workplace. According to a 2013 Wolters Kluwer study, eight in 10 physicians use mobile devices in their daily practice.

The M*Modal Fluency family of products give healthcare providers the freedom to choose workflow options — mobile, front- and back-end speech recognition, traditional transcription — that best meet their needs. These products leverage a single, cloud-based architecture that constantly improves its language understanding through the 200,000 voices processed every day. Using speech instead of a keyboard, many physicians are able to document faster and tend to expand on the patient narrative. This captures richer information, resulting in better documentation and therefore better reimbursement, continuity and outcomes.

The application is designed to run on the iPhone 4 and above. The M*Modal Fluency Flex solution is available now in limited release and will be submitted for iTunes App Store review in the fourth calendar quarter of 2013.
