3M has more than 30 years of experience in developing classification, grouping, edits and reimbursement calculation systems for inpatient, outpatient and professional settings. Whether you or your clients want to process claims for reimbursement or reporting, edit patient records in real time, or analyze patient data, 3M is the source for innovative, cost effective solutions and up-to-date regulatory and classification content.
Today, 3M is leveraging web services and cloud technology to provide this content to our clients securely, with significantly reduced maintenance and a seamless, straightforward implementation process.
In an increasingly complex and dynamic regulatory and payment environment, health care providers and their software vendors are challenged to implement and maintain current and comprehensive grouping, editing and reimbursement content. This content can change daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly or annually. Some changes may be minor. Other changes may be major. Staying up-to-date is critical for managing a business; however, the maintenance is labor intensive and requires specialized skills.
In addition, increased expectations and demands on IT departments are taking their toll. Measuring the resources and time required for implementation and ongoing maintenance is critical to understanding costs and meeting customer needs. Organizations are looking to newer technologies to allocate resources more effectively and efficiently.
For many years, third party software vendors, payers, consultants and analytics companies worldwide have embedded 3M regulatory content within their own applications. This approach gives clients integrated access to this valuable content and allows them to analyze and report on data for their own customers.
To help businesses faced with intense IT resource pressures and time constraints, 3M offers this same rich regulatory and 3M proprietary content delivered through web services, industry standard interfaces, and a cloud environment. 3M™ Grouper Plus Content Services leverages web technology to deliver content with improved timeliness and reduced maintenance. This solution provides up-to-date, secure access to grouping, reimbursement, editing and pay-for-outcomes classifications. The content can be viewed from many different workflows.
