Collom and Carney Clinic Association has entered into a collaboration agreement to implement M Modal's Fluency Direct to improve how patient information is captured and managed in electronic medical record (EMR) systems.

M Modal’s Fluency Direct, which uses natural language understanding (NLU) technology, is designed to provide a flexible speech recognition solution that enables clinical staff to document critical patient information in real-time and from multiple locations including while away from their offices.

M Modal CEO Vern Davenport said the company makes the process of capturing patient information as easy as possible.

"And for time-strapped physicians, having the freedom to dictate patient encounters at their own convenience and in a completely natural and conversational manner helps to capture much richer meaning from every patient-doctor encounter," Davenport added.

"At the end of the day, our solution is simplifying clinicians’ interactions with electronic medical records and other clinical systems and driving towards much better outcomes for their patients."

Collom and Carney Clinic CIO Robert Haley said the clinic’s physicians were impressed by the ease of use and the significant difference in accuracy of M Modal Fluency Direct.

"The implementation process went off without a hitch, and the ability to simply plug-and-play without losing time to get acquainted with technology has been invaluable," Haley added.
