New software, called Computer Assisted Physician Documentation (CAPD) with M*Modal Fluency Direct tool, will be available for clinicians March 1.

CAPD is a documentation tool that provides instant feedback on clinical documentation entry using the Natural Language Understanding (NLU) platform. The tool identifies providers’ documentation entries and initiates a way to provide more details on the diagnosis, such as cause, acuity, or etiology. For example, if a physician documents pneumonia, the software will ask if there was a specific agent or organism that caused the pneumonia.

The software tool runs simultaneously with Fluency Direct.

Tip sheets and site specific guides are available on the Health Information Management (HIM) department website, under the Documentation Digest Tab, CDI Engage.
