M*Modal, a leading provider of clinical documentation and Speech Understanding™ solutions, today announced it will provide Cornerstone Health Group with integrated documentation services and technology, including transcription, iPhone-based mobile dictation, workflow management and Document Insights. M*Modal’s solutions will support Cornerstone in its efforts to deliver improved clinical documentation and better patient care.
Cornerstone Healthcare Group offers care for medically complex patients in six states – Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, Arizona and West Virginia. As part of this full-service agreement, M*Modal will provide exclusive transcription services across the company’s 19 hospitals while delivering the superior quality Cornerstone demands.
“Patients we treat at Cornerstone typically suffer from medically complex ailments and require extended recovery time, which means our physicians and staff need flexibility in how they capture and manage clinical documentation,” said David Smith, President of Cornerstone Health Group. “We were very impressed with M*Modal’s ability to deliver a single-source platform for creating accurate patient records and driving clinical documentation improvements.”
M*Modal’s expertise and leadership in transcription – as well as its ability to scale services quickly based on client need – will enable Cornerstone to enhance workflows, free up hospital resources and streamline the process of capturing patient information. In addition, Cornerstone will be using M*Modal Fluency for Transcription™ workflow management software, a cloud-based platform that supports dictation of narrative through any source – PCs, traditional phones, mobile phones, dictation stations, and real-time speech recognition methods.
Cornerstone will also leverage M*Modal’s speech and analytic tools. With M*Modal’s Fluency Flex Mobile app, physicians can dictate straight to their iPhone or iPad without the worry of a lost wireless signal. And M*Modal’s Document Insights natural language understanding functionality will enable the Clinical Documentation Improvement teams to proactively identify documentation gaps and shorten the billing cycle.
“M*Modal is enabling organizations like Cornerstone to deliver quality patient care through fast, high-quality transcription services, mobile dictation and analytic tools,” said Scott MacKenzie, CEO of M*Modal. “Best of all, we integrate these services using a single technology platform to help physicians and staff provide timely, efficient clinical documentation.”
