3M™ DRG Assurance™ Program is 3M's inpatient Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) program that helps customers realize full and appropriate reimbursement, which depends on complete and accurate documentation.
Healthcare management decisions today are driven by return on investment (ROI), and the 3M DRG Assurance Program delivers just that. 3M clients typically realize a 4:1 financial return in the first year of implementing the clinical documentation improvement (CDI) program. The 3M DRG Assurance Program recognizes that full and appropriate reimbursement depends on complete and accurate documentation. And the most specific documentation can be gathered when a physician can respond to clinically driven questions from well-trained staff before the patient is discharged. Guided by 3M consultants, the program involves caregivers, physicians and coding professionals to review current practices, improve communication, and produce better documentation.
