Every patient has a unique story. Even similar patient cases that appear to be similar often have significant differences. Speech-based narrative documentation is workflow-friendly and enables care providers to tell the full story, including the causes, opinions and rationale for conclusions, that matches the way doctors think and collaborate.

For many years, speech recognition has been identified as a vital and efficient tool to help alleviate lengthy backlogs and increase productivity within the NHS. M*Modal takes this to the next level by offering an innovative and unique solution specifically designed for the healthcare market.

Where conventional speech recognition merely turns a clinician’s dictation into text, M*Modal’s Speech Understanding solution automatically creates a highly structured and encoded meaningful document. This document represents clinical notes as they are dictated, thereby preserving the physician’s reasoning for a course of care, while automatically organising the content into sections according to the HL7 Clinical Documentation Architecture (CDA) standard. It also encodes clinical facts (such as medications, allergies and measurements) according to medical classification systems (LOINC, SNOMED), enabling true interoperability with the electronic health record, information-driven workflows, outcome analysis and clinical research.

BigHand powered by M*Modal is the ideal way to enable clinicians to automatically populate PAS or ERP systems with their voice and facilitate clinical documentation.

You can find out more at the BigHand for Healthcare user conference which is free to attend for both existing BigHand customers and any Healthcare organisations wishing to see how BigHand can work for them.

The annual BigHand Healthcare User Conference for digital dictation, speech recognition and clinical correspondence systems takes place Thursday 1st November 2012 at Wembley Stadium, London, HA9 0WS.
