M*Modal and MEDITECH integration drives physician satisfaction up and transcription costs down at FHN (F.K.A. Freeport Health Network)

Nov. 10, 2017

M*Modal, a provider of clinical documentation and Speech Understanding solutions, announced that it has successfully supported FHN’s  migration to MEDITECH’s Web EHR with the Company’s advanced speech recognition solution, M*Modal Fluency Direct. Regardless of the MEDITECH platform, M*Modal Fluency Direct can be leveraged by healthcare organizations to transition to the MEDITECH Web EHR without incurring additional fees from M*Modal for existing configurations.

FHN is a healthcare system serving Illinois and Wisconsin, incorporating the FHN Memorial Hospital and several physician practices encompassing over 39 specialties. A long-time M*Modal transcription client, FHN has been using M*Modal Fluency Direct real-time speech recognition since 2013 for a speech-driven clinical documentation strategy that optimizes its MEDITECH EHR system. FHN has been a MEDITECH client for over 25 years.

After a vendor evaluation for a front-end speech recognition solution to take the health system forward through the MEDITECH migration, FHN decided to stay with M*Modal Fluency Direct, having used it advantageously for several years already. With M*Modal, FHN has significantly improved the speed, ease, and quality of clinical documentation, as also physician satisfaction and efficiency.

Benefits of using M*Modal Fluency Direct during the transition to MEDITECH’s Web EHR include:

  • Physicians do not have to retrain the M*Modal system as their previously-established, cloud-based speech profiles are immediately available in the Web EHR.
  • All customizations used in the legacy system, such as speech commands, templates, macros, etc. are also automatically carried over to the Web EHR.
  • A unique, speech-driven workflow enables physicians to dictate narrative in real-time into the patient record, edit the narrative using speech commands, and navigate fields using speech.
  • The secure cloud-based but not cloud-dependent M*Modal system is powered by advancements in artificial intelligence and machine learning.
