M*Modal’s Catalyst for Radiology™ platform leverages Natural Language Understanding, closed-loop feedback and in-cloud processing to enhance picture archive and communication systems (PACS) reporting and analysis
Franklin, Tenn. – March 19, 2013 – M*Modal, a leading provider of clinical documentation and Speech Understanding™ solutions, today announced that Canopy Partners, a healthcare management services organization based in Greensboro, N.C., has chosen M*Modal Catalyst for Radiology™ for creating complete, insightful and compliant imaging documentation. M*Modal’s technology platform gives radiologists the analytical tools and full historical view to make efficient and informed diagnostic interpretations.
M*Modal Catalyst for Radiology is a cloud-based workflow and reporting application that aggregates patient history and imaging records, uncovers insights and makes clinical information locked in narrative text quickly available and shareable. It allows radiologists to address and prevent documentation deficiencies at the point of care, structures documents with encoded clinical data, and gives immediate feedback to improve evidence-based decision making.
“Canopy Partners works with hospitals, imaging centers and medical practices to provide critical support in clinical and business workflow,” explained Worth Saunders, CEO of Canopy Partners. “M*Modal Catalyst for Radiology gives us the analytical capabilities to create meaningful and highly accurate imaging documentation, and complements our core expertise in delivering business intelligence to our clients.”
M*Modal Catalyst for Radiology helps understand the full meaning and context behind physician reports by applying Natural Language Understanding to narrative documentation. Unlike the rudimentary word spotting or tagging of most “natural language processing” products in use today, M*Modal’s technology goes far beyond keyword searches to provide insights that are not apparent when analyzing only structured data.
“For radiologists, delivering fast and accurate imaging interpretations is incredibly important in helping make referring physicians more productive,” said Vern Davenport, CEO of M*Modal. “M*Modal Catalyst products collect and synthesize all available clinical data to ensure reporting is compliant, comprehensive and accurate, which translates to better quality care and reimbursements.”
This solution is part of the M*Modal Catalyst™ portfolio of products and can be fully integrated with the M*Modal Fluency™ family of speech understanding solutions. This integration maximizes M*Modal’s cloud-based speech understanding technology for higher quality care and more accurate reimbursements.
