ANNAPOLIS, Md., Jan. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- CBaySystems and Services, Inc., a leading provider of transcription and BPO services, and M*Modal, providers of the industry's most advanced speech understanding service, today announced that they have formed a strategic partnership.
"Our mission is to increase the speed, quality and efficiency of medical transcription," said Chris Foley, President, CBaySystems and Services, Inc. "Integrating M*Modal's AnyModal CDS into our platform meets all three of those objectives, providing our customers with new productivity gains on a global scale."
AnyModal CDS (Conversational Documentation Services) offers a unique combination of speech recognition and natural language understanding that captures a physician's meaning, transforming spoken dictation into accurate, complete, and meaningful healthcare documentation. Physicians dictate the way they always have, and M*Modal's patented speech understanding services transform the spoken dictation into a draft transcript, automatically structured and encoded according to the healthcare provider's documentation rules. What's more, the system continually learns from corrected documents to improve the accuracy of words, structure and meaning.
"Our relationship with CBay gives physicians and hospitals an incredible advantage," said Michael Finke, Chairman and CEO of M*Modal. "Our ability to quickly capture highly accurate, structured, encoded clinical documents combined with the speed and quality of CBay transcription, routing, document management and archiving makes this a premier solution in the industry."
CBaySystems provides full-serve medical transcription and document management services to thousands of leading hospitals, healthcare networks, medical clinics, and physician practices, including some of the most prestigious institutions in the world.
"We invested a lot of time evaluating speech recognition systems, and M*Modal surpassed them all" says Foley. "By continually integrating best-of-breed technologies into our technology platform, we'll continue to improve the quality and speed of medical transcription, while saving hospitals and physician practices time and money."
