June 13, 2012 — M*Modal Inc., a leading provider of clinical documentation services and Speech Understanding solutions, announced the M*Modal Catalyst family of cloud-based applications, enabling healthcare decision-makers to extract actionable information from “unstructured” medical documentation, regardless of how that data was created, and combine it with structured data contained in electronic clinical systems. This new suite of solutions is designed to make full use of the untapped meaning contained within clinical documentation to improve the quality of patient care and better inform financial practices. Also announced today are the first two applications in the M*Modal Catalyst suite, M*Modal Catalyst for Quality and M*Modal Catalyst for Radiology, built on the company’s proprietary cloud-based speech understanding platform.
The majority of a healthcare organization’s data is captured in a traditional narrative or unstructured form, including dictated notes from the doctor-patient encounter and other sources. Until now, healthcare organizations have been severely limited in their ability to access, beyond searching for keywords, the real context and meaning behind a physician’s observations. This has hindered organizational efforts to uncover medical findings for more accurate reimbursements and improvements at the point of care. With M*Modal Catalyst, hospitals, physician practices and managed service organizations can quickly retrieve and assess this information in their unstructured data.
