M*Modal, a leader in advanced Speech Understanding technology, today announced the launch of AnyModal™ CDS Mobile on the Apple App Store. AnyModal CDS Mobile makes real-time Speech Understanding services available on the iPhone so physicians will be able to improve patient care from anywhere at anytime.
PITTSBURGH (Business Wire EON) November 19, 2008 -- "Pairing our innovative technology with the revolutionary iPhone seemed like a natural next step as we expand our technology portfolio," said Michael Finke, CEO of M*Modal. "By incorporating vital patient data into highly accurate clinical documentation, more reports will be made available faster resulting in better patient care."
"The AnyModal CDS Mobile offers a true advance in capability by making it possible to capture real time validated clinical information using the clinicians' voice processed by powerful, highly accurate server based Speech Understanding technology. Combining the breakthrough of the iPhone Multi-Touch user interface for command/control with the efficiency and convenience of speech is a superb example that is truly multi-modal." said Walt Tetschner of Voice Information Associates, Inc.
While clinical dictation was possible before via telephone or PDA devices, the resulting report was not available for hours. AnyModal CDS Mobile delivers documents in real time to the physician's iPhone, making it the first device to capture, understand and transcribe dictation in real-time. Physicians can now immediately review and sign off on a clinical document.
The company's core product, AnyModal™ CDS (Conversational Documentation Services), based on a unique combination of proprietary speech recognition and natural language understanding technologies, turns clinical dictation directly into structured and encoded clinical documents.
The highly configurable, service-oriented architecture (SOA), paired with the platform independent set of thin client user interface components, enables M*Modal partners to incorporate AnyModal CDS into their workflow solutions.
M*Modal uses the software as a service (SaaS) application delivery model, independently hosting, operating and maintaining its software application in an off-site data center for customer use over the Internet. This structure allows for the pervasive use of the most advanced, highly accurate Speech Understanding service, whether physicians are relying on medical transcriptionists or editing documents themselves. Access is available from any PC connected to the internet via a secure connection. There is no need for on-site hardware and IT maintenance and support or timely upgrades.
M*Modal, based in Pittsburgh, PA, offers on-demand conversational documentation services that help healthcare providers capture discrete clinical information from dictation to generate complete and timely electronic medical records. The company's unique Speech Understanding technology platform, AnyModal CDS, is a vital tool that empowers physicians to capture clinical facts and orders from dictation without requiring any change to their normal dictation routine. M*Modal's focus is on providing hospitals, healthcare IT vendors, and medical transcription service providers with the industry's most comprehensive yet most adaptable solution for creating highly accurate, structured, encoded, and shareable medical documents to increase patient safety, promote continuity of patient care, and reduce cost.
