Company and Partners to Highlight Robust Platform that Transforms Speech into Meaningful Action, Helps Organizations Realize Full Promise of EHR

Pittsburgh, PA – February 15, 2011 (HIMSS Booth #1637) — M*Modal, the industry leader in advanced Speech Understanding™ technology, announced today that it will be showcasing its technology and Collaborative Intelligence platform, which permits the transformation of narrative documentation into structured information that can be shared by care givers, at the HIMSS11 Annual Conference and Exhibition. M*Modal will be demonstrating its solutions along with partner Precyse Solutions, and M*Modal will also be discussing significant customer news and additional partnerships. The HIMSS11 Annual Conference and Exhibition takes place from February 20-24, 2011 in Orlando, Florida.

M*Modal aims to close the gaps created by the constrained documentation modes of electronic health record (EHR) systems.  These gaps prevent the information-rich collaborative environments that match the way physicians think and work, and that can foster optimal clinical decisions and actions.  M*Modal will show how it produces Collaborative Intelligence using its Speech Understanding technology.  Unlike commonly used speech recognition tools, M*Modal’s Speech Understanding blends advanced speech and natural language processing (NLP) technologies natively in one unified platform.  The results of this approach are superior recognition and automatic output not simply of tagged data elements, but also of structured, meaningful content that becomes an integral and readily accessible part of the patient’s record.

The company will show how its solutions match the variety of workflow requirements in today’s organizations, including full integration with EHR software to permit documentation directly to the application  Also featured will be M*Modal’s approaches to clinical content solutions that leverage NLP to answer medical questions and drive informed actions as a result.

M*Modal works with a wide variety of clinical documentation, EHR, PACS, and other solutions partners. At its booth, M*Modal will showcase partner Precyse Solutions, which specializes in health information management. The company will be demonstrating PrecyseCode™, its computer-assisted coding product that utilizes M*Modal’s NLP platform to increase revenue cycle management efficiencies. M*Modal and Precyse recently announced a partnership with Geisinger Health System that leverages this PrecyseCode solution to redesign revenue cycle workflow and significantly enhance coding effectiveness.

M*Modal will also be discussing its partnership with Greenway Medical Technologies, a leading provider of EHR, ambulatory healthcare and clinical research business solutions and services. Greenway’s PrimeSPEECH™ solution leverages M*Modal’s Speech Understanding technology to enable physicians to dictate patient information directly within the EHR’s templates and produce structured, clinically encoded data.  In addition, M*Modal will be announcing a new partnership with iMedX, a leading healthcare software and services company.

“Consistent with our commitment to providing Collaborative Intelligence, we have designed our new booth to foster education and dialogue about how our technologies and partners’ solutions contribute to the industry’s demand for connecting all constituencies involved in a patient’s care,” said Don Fallati, Senior Vice President of Marketing. “”We look forward to sharing information with attendees about how our unique platform can promote their strategic objectives.”
