M*Modal has announced a medical dictation app for iPhone® mobile digital devices. The M*Modal Fluency Flex™ Mobile app lets doctors quickly and accurately record clinical notes during patient encounters for easy integration with electronic health record systems.
M*Modal’s Fluency Flex Mobile is a cloud-based application that captures high-quality audio which is converted to text using the M*Modal Fluency for Transcription™ speech engine for fast turnaround time and integration in provider workflows and clinical documentation systems.
The app is designed to run on the iPhone 4 and above, but is currently only in limited release. It will be submitted for iTunes App Store review in the fourth calendar quarter of 2013.
“M*Modal Fluency Flex Mobile lets our physicians work when and where they want to work,” said Dr. Michael Sanders, Medical Director at St. Dominic-Jackson Memorial Hospital in Jackson, Miss. “Physicians appreciate being able to use their own smartphones, especially when a dictation device is hard to find or not readily available. In addition, the app provides a secure platform that ensures patient information remains private. This flexible dictation platform provides mobility and freedom that our physicians need and appreciate.”
“M*Modal developed this new mobile app with the physician in mind, delivering accurate, high-quality medical transcription with the convenience of anytime, anywhere dictation,” said Duncan James, CEO of M*Modal. “Healthcare providers can streamline the clinical documentation process by using devices they already carry with them. The M*Modal Fluency Flex Mobile solution promotes higher satisfaction, improved productivity and stronger adoption of EHR systems by employing technology that physicians want.”
