The University of California, Irvine Medical Center in Irvine, California, US, has selected M*Modal for advanced speech understanding solutions to improve clinical documentation technology and outcomes.
The medical centre will deploy M*Modal Fluency Direct and M*Modal Catalyst applications that can be integrated with Allscripts Sunrise Clinical Manager, UC Irvine’s electronic health record (EHR) system.
UC Irvine Healthcare information services chief information officer Jim Murry said the technology helps in incorporating the medical data directly into the medical centre’s EHR at the point of capture, which can improve staff efficiency and productivity.
"This system will allow UC Irvine to streamline our clinical documentation processes and further advance how we deliver care to our patients," Murry added.
The M*Modal’s platforms use conversational documentation to produce information that drives processes such as order entry or reconciling lists of symptoms and treatments.
M*Modal Fluency Direct eliminates the manual click-point-type method of generating structured notes and allows EHRs and other clinical systems to produce quality clinical documentation.
M*Modal Catalyst aids in extracting the actionable information from unstructured medical documentation and integrating it with structured data enclosed in electronic clinical systems, according to M*Modal.
M*Modal CEO Vern Davenport said the company’s cloud-based technology will allow UCI to create high-quality clinical documentation in EHRs in a conversational manner.
"Our partnerships with Allscripts and other EHR providers ensure a seamless integration, saving healthcare professionals valuable time and effort while lowering the overall cost of care," Davenport added.
The medical centre will also implement M*Modal Fluency for Transcription, which is designed to include voice input and structured text through a single application.
