Providence Health Care (PHC) in British Columbia, Canada, has chosen M*Modal’s Fluency for Transcription speech platform to improve physician productivity, quality and enable cost savings.
Lower Mainland Health Authorities will implement the technology across 38 hospitals and health centres for speech-enabled transcription services that improve the quality of documentation and productivity.
Providence Health Care integrated health information management executive director Yoel Robens-Paradise said the health system is focused on developing a clinical documentation model that provides the highest quality care with efficiency and turnaround times.
"We’ve partnered with M*Modal to deliver on that promise with a common platform that works seamlessly across all of our facilities and improves physician productivity," Robens-Paradise added.
M*Modal’s Fluency for Transcription service enables single document management and workflow technology that integrates voice capture with speech recognition, editing and electronic signature tools.
Physicians can use the technology to create comprehensive electronic health records, according to M*Modal.
Cloud-based technology allows quality assurance and HIM personnel to check quality and transcription workflows, and enable physicians to dictate and edit their own speech recognised reports, increasing speed and the entire transcription process.
M*Modal CEO Vern Davenport said: "Our cloud-based technology surpasses traditional transcription solutions, giving physicians reliable, accurate records that will allow them to provide better care to their patients and improve the workflow of the entire health facility."
