Type: Integrated, multi-specialty, non-profit
Annual admissions: 150,000+
As one of the first users of the 3M™ 360 Encompass™ System, this healthcare system created a committee to investigate the increases in patient safety indicators (PSIs) and hospital-acquired conditions (HACs) affecting quality. 3M 360 Encompass offered the automated system needed to better understand patient data through documentation. Better communication with CDI reviewers and coders ushered in a decrease in PSIs and HACs. Productivity also increased as a result of better clinical documentation.
Location: Washington state
Type: Multi-hospital, integrated, non-profit
Annual admissions: 40,000+
A crucial objective for this integrated health system was to maintain quality, rather than focus on quantity. With the 3M™ 360 Encompass™ System, the clinical documentation process improved significantly, as did the streamlined process between CDI reviewers, physicians, and coders.
Type: Rural, private, non-profit
Annual admissions: 6,000+
This rural community hospital just moved to a new EHR, with 95 percent electronic documents, when it implemented the 3M™ 360 Encompass™ System. The hospital aimed to increase productivity and create a more streamlined, automated system to enhance the workflow with 3M. As regulations exert new demands on rural hospitals and with limited staff and fewer resources, the hospital needed to find new and innovative ways to prepare for regulatory mandates.
Type: Children’s hospital, non-profit, private
Annual admissions: 25,000+
State initiatives changed the way this children’s facility operated and demanded new technology and a CDI program. With the 3M™ 360 Encompass™ System, this hospital created a new CDI program that made communication between caregivers far easier. The hospital also saw strong productivity and financial improvements. All together the change resulted in a reduction of five outsourced coders (equivalent to 30-percent productivity increase), an increased case mix index for two consecutive years, and a decrease in medical necessity denials.
Type: Multi-hospital, integrated, non-profit
Annual admissions: 50,000+
Recognizing the need to optimize its resources for both coding and CDI, this healthcare system improved its workflow by using the 3M™ 360 Encompass™ System. Now the organization is experiencing improved coding and DRG accuracy.
Type: State, academic, multi-specialty
Annual admissions: 22,000+
This innovative healthcare system used the 3M™ 360 Encompass™ System to improve productivity and documentation quality, but also realized additional benefits. Upon seeing a 15 percent increase in case mix index and and a 9.8 percent decrease in discharged not final billed (DNFB), the system expanded use to include the quality department. This allowed the CDI and quality teams to identify real-time patient data and assess key information before discharge, resulting in a 95 percent identification rate in patient safety indicators (PSIs) and hospital-acquired conditions (HACs).
Location: South Carolina
Type: General medical and surgical hospital
Annual admissions: 23,340+
Concerned with outpatient productivity, this healthcare organization implemented the 3M™ 360 Encompass™ System to enhance productivity and transform outpatient measures. The integrated platform is a one-stop solution for streamlining revenue cycles, improving clinician insights and generating accurate reimbursement. The organization abandoned initiatives to add outsourced coders after seeing an increase in productivity with 3M, and instead decreased the number of outsourced coders.
Type: Faith-based, non-profit healthcare organization
Annual admissions: 84,770+
To boost its outpatient measures, this faith-based organization implemented the 3M™ 360 Encompass™ System. Shortly after implementation, the organization reported significantly higher outpatient coder productivity and enhanced reporting capabilities. The strategic partnership with 3M set the stage for future growth and enabled maximum functionality across the organization.
A better bottom line.
More than 2,000 hospitals selected the 3M™ 360 Encompass™ System to provide computer-assisted coding (CAC), clinical documentation improvement (CDI) and an analytical advantage.
3M 360 Encompass is the only automated coding and documentation improvement system that leverages 3M-proprietary natural language processing (NLP) and rules. It seamlessly integrates CAC, CDI, quality indicators and analytics to capture, analyze and advance patient information. And now, the 3M 360 Encompass platform is growing with capabilities for professional fee coding and communication with providers.
