Pittsburgh, PA and Shelton, CT — February 21, 2011 (HIMSS Booth #1637) — M*Modal and iMedX, Inc., a leading healthcare software and services company, today announced a partnership that has created a full integration of M*Modal’s leading Speech Understanding™ platform with the iMedX proprietary TurboFlow® system. TurboFlow is a robust, Internet-based platform that supports the rapidly growing iMedX customer base and workforce of transcriptionists. With Speech Understanding, iMedX drives substantial reductions in document turnaround times, and facilitates better clinical care, and revenue cycle management for its clients. In addition, the M*Modal technology supports iMedX’s strategy of rich integration with provider EMR systems by creating structured documents natively, consistent with the Clinical Document Architecture (CDA) standard, as well as text, adding informational value to what would otherwise be unstructured data.
Providing a unified platform that combines superior speech recognition with natural language processing, M*Modal’s industry-leading Speech Understanding™ technology transforms physician dictation into structured, encoded, and shareable data. This data can be used to generate alerts and other intelligence needed to drive medical actions. The technology adapts to physician workflow patterns and allows flexibility of use, supporting both self-editing and transcription-assisted completion of recognized documents.
“We have invested heavily in our software and systems and are always seeking to distinguish ourselves and add value to our clients by using the very best technology available,” said Venkat Sharma, iMedX CEO. “M*Modal’s Speech Understanding was the clear choice for us because it provides superior speech recognition that is cost-effective and very easy to integrate. M*Modal knows how to work with partners.”
“iMedX’s strong growth is due in no small part to its commitment to technology innovation,” added Michael Finke, CEO, M*Modal. “They join a range of companies who are engaging with us to produce meaningful clinical documentation that influences real actions for their clients.”
