M*Modal, the Franklin, Tenn.-based provider of clinical documentation and medical transcription software, has named Scott MacKenzie its new chief executive officer.

MacKenzie replaces former CEO Duncan James, who resigned from the top position in August of this year after a tumultuous financial year which saw the company file and emerge from Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
