FRANKLIN, Tenn.--(M*Modal, a leading provider of clinical documentation and Speech Understanding™ solutions, today announced that the University of California, Irvine Medical Center, named among U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospitals for 12 consecutive years, will deploy M*Modal Fluency Direct™ and M*Modal Catalyst™ to deliver advanced cloud-based clinical documentation technology solutions to its world-class physicians, surgeons and clinical staff. These applications will be integrated with Allscripts Sunrise Clinical Manager™, UC Irvine’s existing electronic health record (EHR) system.)--
“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.”
Using conversational documentation, M*Modal’s solutions enable physicians to generate truly useable information that drives actions within an EHR, such as order entry or reconciling lists of symptoms and treatments. These benefits are not possible without direct access to an EHR's data model, and enable a truly integrated workflow. In addition, users have tremendous flexibility in capturing information (via telephony, mobile devices and more) as well as editing.
“With this technology, we have the ability to input medical data directly into our EHR at the point of capture, which can really improve the efficiency and productivity of our staff,” said Jim Murry, chief information officer, UC Irvine Healthcare, Information Services. “This system will allow UC Irvine to streamline our clinical documentation processes and further advance how we deliver care to our patients.”
M*Modal Fluency Direct speech-enables EHRs and other clinical systems using any workstation, anywhere in the enterprise to create high-quality clinical documentation. The application also eliminates the manual click-point-type method of creating structured notes, and elevates the overall quality and totality of digital clinical information. With M*Modal Catalyst, users can 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.
“Our cloud-based technology surpasses traditional speech recognition solutions, allowing UCI to create high-quality clinical documentation in EHRs in a conversational manner – anytime, anywhere, on any workstation,” said Vern Davenport, CEO, M*Modal. “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.”
UC Irvine was seeking a technology solution that could conversationally update patient narratives – while interpreting and understanding the physician’s statements – to automatically populate EHR templates in real-time, as well as drive actions that improve patient outcomes. UC Irvine selected M*Modal to enhance its clinical documentation process, based on the technology’s seamless integration with the Allscripts™ EHR system, and to bridge the gap between structured data and language, capturing the full patient story and making it immediately useable, actionable and shareable with providers across the organization.
In addition to these products, UC Irvine will upgrade its documentation system by implementing M*Modal Fluency for Transcription™, which enables physicians to incorporate voice input and structured text through a single application.
M*Modal is a Platinum Plus Partner of Allscripts.
