Wouldn't it be great if you could speak your order into your mobile device? Well, the folks at Intermountain Healthcare will have that luxury soon . Here's a snippet from a press release that came out last week:
Franklin, TN – February 22, 2013 – M*Modal, a leading provider of clinical documentation and Speech Understanding™ solutions, today announced an agreement with Intermountain Healthcare to jointly develop innovative mobile technology for speech-enabled Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE), enabling physicians and hospital staff to conversationally order patient medication and other medical functions using iOS® devices, including iPhone® and iPad® mobile digital devices. This mobile application (app) will benefit healthcare providers by allowing physicians to quickly, easily and securely place orders at the point of care.
M*Modal (booth #6647) and Intermountain (booth #1810) will be demonstrating the order entry app for medications at the 2013 HIMSS Conference, being held March 3-7 in New Orleans. Intermountain is an internationally recognized healthcare provider network of 22 hospitals, 185 clinics and an affiliated health insurance company, SelectHealth.
