The 3M™ Ambulatory Revenue Management Software (ARMS) is a comprehensive solution that moves coding edits and charge detail from the back-end up to the point of coding. Its single outpatient database consolidates the information needed to manage and improve ambulatory reimbursement, performance and compliance, as well as evaluate and continuously improve your organization’s revenue cycle process.
Unlike many revenue cycle solutions, 3M ARMS provides a central repository for viewing the major data sources that impact outpatient revenue: HIM, chargemaster, billing department for the billing codes, and remittance advice. More importantly, 3M ARMS moves edits from the back-end of the revenue cycle process to the point of coding, which helps you improve cash flow and compliance while also reducing re-work and denials. The software comes with tools to measure and analyze data accuracy, validate medical necessity claims, and audit for compliance purposes throughout your APC revenue cycle.
