Manual vs. Computer Assisted Coding

Does using the 3M 360 Encompass System mean an improved case mix index? Yes, it does.

  • How sure are we?

    The statistics speak for themselves. A blind study shows with 95 percent certainty that a hospital on board with 3M 360 Encompass will have a positive shift between 0.0102 and 0.2069 in its CMI. 1

CMI shift
  • Annual impact

    What does that mean to a bottom line?

    That kind of CMI shift would mean an annual impact between $378K and $7.7M.

  • And how does 3M’s CAC (computer-assisted coding) compare with manual methods?

    The clients working with our CAC the majority of the time are more likely to see a CMI increase than those relying on manual coding methods. 2, 3
