November 21, 2007 – Viztek and M*Modal announced an agreement for the integration of M*Modal’s speech understanding solution, AnyModal CDS, into Viztek’s Web-based Opal-RAD PACS, reportedly allowing AnyModal CDS to advance EHR integration without changing workflow.
Viztek’s Opal-RAD PACS allows radiologists dictate reports directly to exam files, while AnyModal CDS captures and comprehends clinical information from dictation, transforming it directly into accessible, retrievable and shareable electronic files. The technology utilizes speech understanding to reportedly deliver highly accurate, complete documents with meaning and context. Audio files are available for review locally or by any authorized user anywhere over the Internet.
M*Modal automatically generates reports from narrative dictation without formatting commands. The company’s technology uses context-based understanding versus standard single-word recognition, permitting the system to understand phrases instead of simple audio, which is frequently affected by background noise. By following mandated reporting standards, the technology supports streamlined report sharing across multi-vendor healthcare practitioners and facilities.
