Speech Understanding Technology

provided by M*Modal

Toward complete, interoperable and compliant medical records.

Everyone in the healthcare industry is talking about complete, interoperable and compliant medical records. M*Modal has a plan to deliver them. The first step is to let physicians document patient care as they choose.
Meaningful content. M*Modal’s state-of-the-art Speech Understanding technology translates physician dictation in real-time into a searchable, structured document. The physician’s reasoning for a course of care is preserved, and clinical facts – medications, allergies, measurements and more – are automatically encoded. 
Evolving use. The result is a meaningful clinical document that can be used by both people and systems in the care process. Moving forward with our partners—leading transcription service providers, platform providers and forward-thinking EMRs— WebChart and M*Modal aim to make these documents a permanent part of the patient’s electronic health record.

Medical meaning matters – at any style or speed

Clinical documentation uses a wide variety of terms with same meaning. There are terms that sound the same but have different meanings. Physicians have a wide variety of styles, accents and methods of dictation. And healthcare is an exceedingly dynamic field with new developments, treatments and medications. M*Modal's Speech Understanding solution –AnyModal CDS– masters all of it, with no compromise to clinical documentation accuracy or completeness.

M*Modal’s highly configurable, service-oriented architecture (SOA), paired with platform-independent, thin client user interface components, makes it easy for partners to incorporate Speech Understanding into their workflow.

From the physician’s dictation, M*Modal automatically structures and encodes clinical facts -- such as medications, dosages and allergies, as well as vital sign measurements. This real-time process results in accurate and complete healthcare documentation today – and an important step toward greater compliance and interoperability.

Learns continuously

I just wanted to take a moment and show my appreciation for one of your transcriptionists.  Of course I don’t know their names since the only way I can identify anyone is by their initials at the end of the transcribed note.  The person with the initials lh has done a terrific job with transcribing my dictations.  I realize that I dictate rather quickly and three words become one!  However; lh has been able to accurately transcribe and I simply wanted to say thank you very much.  I realize the same person can’t transcribe my dictations every time, nor would them to, but I am grateful for their work!  Maybe he or she is a northerner and they simply get my northern gibberish!

So often, we can find time to complain --but not often enough do we take the time to thank folks who make our lives easier in the simplest ways. Please share this note of gratitude with lh.
