"M*Modal is a strategic and reliable partner in our forward journey into the electronic chart and integrated care," said Dr. Mark Guy, Allegheny Health Network. "The top ranking is well deserved as M*Modal's blend of speech and real-time natural language understanding technologies helps us move toward better use of the patient narrative to deliver value-based care while significantly relieving the documentation burden on providers."

Gaining unprecedented adoption in the market within 2 years of being launched, M*Modal Computer-Assisted Physician Documentation (CAPD) is a built-in quality check system that provides real-time, actionable insights to clinicians as they document in over 120 EHRs for continuous improvement in how doctors care for their patients. Using M*Modal CAPD, healthcare organizations have reported a 30% reduction in retrospective queries and later amendments to their documentation. Also, up to 70% of physicians using the system are reportedly interacting with the insights for meaningful engagement with technology.

"These awards and market traction can be attributed to several factors including our cognitive technology, ease of integration, lowest cost of ownership, in-house services, and the ambient documentation experience we deliver to physicians," said Scott MacKenzie, CEO of M*Modal. "We will continue being the first to bring greater innovation to market with our physician assistive solutions that support diverse goals such as virtual scribing, risk-adjustment documentation, predictive analytics, etc. so that we can pro-actively help resolve gaps in documentation and patient care."
