*Okay, so maybe we didn’t actually poll doctors on this question, but we know doctors didn’t go to medical school for data entry. Physicians help piece together the story of your patients’ health, and no story can be fully told through check boxes and drop-down menus.

Our state of the art Natural Language Understanding technology is specifically designed to recognize medical language and cut out the time that you spend clicking. At M*Modal, we’re all about creating time for doctors to care for your patients, your family and for yourself! So, if you had an extra hour or two in your day, what would you do with it?
