Epic and M*Modal are collaborating to bring artificial intelligence capabilities to Epic’s platform and electronic health records systems.

M*Modal’s artificial intelligence powered portfolio of solutions will be enhanced to support the Epic NoteReader CDI module. Along with the embedded M*Modal Computer-Assisted Physician Documentation (CAPD) technology, Epic NoteReader CDI also utilizes the M*Modal CAPD infrastructure and rigorous reporting capabilities to deliver automated physician feedback.

The initiative is intended to assist physicians with the documentation process and also looks toward the future when this automated approach will support workflows for next-generation EHRs, the companies say.

The M*Modal CAPD technology continuously analyzes documentation and applies machine learning and clinical reasoning across the entire patient record to deliver insights and suggest improvements in quality and compliance as the physician note is being created.

The new initiative extends M*Modal’s collaboration with Epic on the company’s cloud-based speech recognition and natural language understanding technologies. Already used by several joint clients, these advanced workflows enable the M*Modal technology platform to analyze clinical notes and deliver real-time physician feedback on gaps and variance in problem, medication and allergy lists.

“Building on top of Epic’s platform, M*Modal’s innovative speech and AI tools give physicians great options for capturing narrative and structured data,” said Carl Dvorak, President of Epic.
