Engineered specifically to seamlessly speech enable athenaClinicals so that physicians of any medical specialty can quickly create high quality clinical documentation directly in the electronic health record (EHR) to free up more time for patient care.

  • High performance and support

    With 3M™ M*Modal Fluency Direct, users can directly dictate into athenaClinicals with full voice navigation and edit capabilities. All medical specialty and subspecialty vocabularies are supported, as are the use of customized templates, macros and a robust library of voice commands to navigate the tabs and sections. With 3M, you can efficiently, accurately and immediately capture the complete patient story.


    • High accuracy
    • Any medical specialty
    • Customized templates and macros


  • Computer-assisted physician documentation (CAPD)

    3M Fluency Direct’s unique, embedded CAPD functionality is also available for real time improvement in documentation quality and patient care. This game-changing capability delivers interactive clinical intelligence to clinicians as they document electronically by continuously analyzing the note, suggesting improvements in quality and reporting on physician engagement with the system.


    • Improved quality of care
    • ICD-10 support
    • Clinical documentation integrity (CDI)


  • Optimized user experience

    To deliver an exemplary physician documentation experience with high out-of-the-gate accuracy and without prior training, 3M uses a patented approach of combining speech recognition technology with natural language understanding (NLU). This unique speech understanding technology enables better understanding of the meaning, intent and context of the clinician’s dictation.

  • Greater portability

    A single, cloud-hosted user speech profile can be used from any workstation for rapid adoption, greater productivity and improved physician satisfaction. Clinicians can now dictate from multiple locations as they move between exam rooms, office and home without the need to sign off from individual workstations. Also, no additional training of the speech profile is required and physicians benefit from a consistent experience.

  • Virtual deployment

    3M Fluency Direct is built to scale and its compatibility with athenaClinicals extends across Citrix® XenApp®, Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft® RemoteDesktop and Microsoft RemoteApp VMware® View deployments.
