    3M "preventables" software identifies avoidable and unnecessary care. The focus on "potentially preventable" events gives organizations actionable information to make improvements where they can have the greatest impact.

    The full suite includes:

    • 3M™ Potentially Preventables Readmissions Software
    • 3M™ Potentially Preventable Complications Software
    • 3M™ Population-focused Preventables Software
    • 3M's suite is the broadest set of "preventables" quality metrics available. It addresses the full spectrum of potentially preventable events (PPEs) from admissions to ancillary services. The classification models focus on potentially preventable events, not all negative events. They produce actionable results identifying hospitalizations, complications, ED visits and ancillary services that are "impactable," meaning interventions can have a measurable effect. 3M Preventables are appropriate for all patient populations and payer types, unlike Medicare measures for readmissions and complications. Because they are based on the same risk-adjustment methodologies, they form a common, complementary measure set across disparate patient types and care setting.

      The 3M Preventables suite includes:
