July 24, 2012 — M*Modal, a provider of clinical documentation and speech understanding solutions, announced United Hospital System has selected the M*Modal Fluency family of cloud-based solutions to deliver advanced clinical documentation to its health system and physicians. As part of the agreement, United Hospital System will roll out M*Modal Fluency Direct, M*Modal Fluency for Transcription and M*Modal Fluency for Imaging to its facilities across Wisconsin and northern Illinois.
United Hospital System had been using an aging voice capture and transcription platform and was seeking advanced technology that included speech recognition and understanding to improve productivity of in-house transcriptionists while boosting physician adoption and electronic health record (EHR) usability. After conducting a diligent search, United Hospital System determined that M*Modal’s Fluency for Transcription would help deliver a portfolio of technology solutions and transcription services that would help document optimal patient care, improve financial performance and meet the business objectives for all of its facilities.
In addition, the M*Modal Fluency for Imaging application will offer United’s radiologists intuitive technology through speech-driven diagnostic reporting allowing conversational speech for enhanced ease of use, improved accuracy and greater user satisfaction. Structured reporting and integrated productivity tools allow faster creation and turnaround of diagnostic imaging interpretations. Physician dictation is transformed into electronic documents that are structured, clinically encoded, searchable and shareable.
Announced in May, M*Modal Fluency is a line of cloud-based clinical solutions for dictation capture, speech recognition editing and document distribution to optimize clinical information workflow, speed up the revenue cycle, help achieve HIPAA and regulatory compliance, as well as help meet meaningful use and EHR requirements.
