Johns Hopkins Medicine, a large integrated healthcare provider based in Baltimore, has extended its agreement with the Franklin, Tenn.-based clinical documentation provider, M*Modal, announcing it will implement M*Modal’s Natural Language Understanding (NLU) technology across all of its health facilities, while also bringing on new transcription services.

The NLU technology, according to M*Modal, will help Johns Hopkins manage transcription workloads, maximize throughput, and maintain consistent standards for quality across all sources of each provider's captured narrative. Meanwhile, the transcription services, which are already present at the Johns Hopkins Hospital and Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, will expand to other Johns Hopkins facilities.
