FRANKLIN, Tenn., Jan. 31, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- M*Modal, a leading provider of clinical documentation and Speech Understanding™ solutions, today announced that its conversational AI (artificial intelligence) platform has been once again recognized for delivering the broadest clinical, financial and operational impact on healthcare organizations. M*Modal has earned the top spot in three separate categories in the annual Best in KLAS: Software and Services report published today, which ranks vendors based solely on client evaluations.

The M*Modal top-ranked platform can be seen at work at the 2019 HIMSS Conference (booth #2079) from February 11 through 14.

#1 Speech Recognition — Front End EMR

For the third consecutive year, M*Modal has been ranked #1 in Speech Recognition Front End EMR, consistently surpassing two other vendors in this segment. Leveraging M*Modal’s long history of delivering industry-trusted, cloud-based conversational solutions, M*Modal Fluency Direct® is integrated with over 200 EHRs, including Epic®, Cerner®, MEDITECH®, athenahealth®, eClinicalWorks®, Allscripts® and more. This top ranking validates M*Modal’s unique approach of delivering differentiating value with an extensible platform that helps clinicians progress from naturally capturing the complete patient narrative in the EHR, to effectively engaging with proactive nudges using market-leading Computer-Assisted Physician Documentation (CAPD), and to completing routine tasks like order entry with a virtual assistant.

“In my 12 years in informatics, the single most helpful tool I have encountered to diminish physician frustration and burnout related to the EHR and improve provider satisfaction is M*Modal Fluency Direct,” said Peter Lundeen, M.D., Hospitalist at Spectrum Health Medical Group and Spectrum Health. “M*Modal enables clinicians to create more detailed, timely and specific documentation in the EHR with improved productivity. There are few if any other tools for providers that have been so universally appreciated.” 

#1 Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) Software

M*Modal’s leading position in this competitive category in the KLAS report underscores how much clients value and rely on the M*Modal AI technology to improve clinical documentation integrity.

Taking CDI to the next level, M*Modal CDI Collaborate™ streamlines the workflows of CDI Specialists (CDIS) and gives them instant visibility into the quality and financial impact of the technology. Minimizing manual chart reviews, this solution automatically prioritizes patient records, expands coverage to all payers and charts, and summarizes clinical evidence to support diagnoses in payer claims.
