Expand coding efficiency to professional coding teams.
3M 360 Encompass Professional is the encounter-based professional services coding solution within the powerful 3M™ 360 Encompass™ System platform that brings forward auto-suggested codes for improved productivity, accuracy and compliance to your professional services coding teams.
Channeling the power of 3M’s proprietary natural language understanding (NLU) technology, 3M 360 Encompass Professional surfaces auto-suggested CPT® and ICD-10-CM codes for professional services coding. With sophisticated query capabilities, smart code linking, custom edits and more, 3M’s professional fee coding solution has the flexibility to support coding teams across multiple specialties, facilities and departments. Current clinical and regulatory updates are at the coder’s fingertips, and a feature-rich set of coding alerts and functions help coders make accurate coding and billing decisions.
Single path coding allows both outpatient facility and professional coding to occur within the same system and workflow, during one session, by one coder. With one click of a code, it is possible to populate both facility and professional codes, and display 3M™ Coding and Reimbursement System (CRS) edits, as well as medical necessity edits where applicable, to both outpatient facility and professional codes.
Cassi Birnbaum � Unifying coding workflows with single path (DESCRIBED VIDEO) Text appears on screen that reads: Unifying coding workflows with single path (CASSI BIRNBAUM) It was really, really important to focus on single path as well, to really bridge the gap between facility and professional fee coding. (DESCRIBED VIDEO) Cassi Birnbaum, who is seated in a beautiful outdoor courtyard, begins speaking and title text appears on screen over video: Cassi Birnbaum Former senior enterprise director of HIM, coding and CDI PeaceHealth (CASSI BIRNBAUM) So we were very excited about that opportunity to enable one workflow, to satisfy capturing coding. I think one of the biggest wins that we were able to experience is really unifying the coding opportunity with single path. Again, bringing together professional fee coders and facility HIM coders into one workflow. And there, there was training that was required both on the ProFee coder side, where they needed to learn the nuances of HIM coding and charge capture as well as some of the abstraction rules and vice versa, the workflow was different. So that was an adjustment, but there was just a lot of synergy and opportunity for the two groups to come together. And, the exciting thing for me in contrast to my previous experience is that we really widen the scope of single path. So anytime where we needed to do a hundred percent coding in a specialty we took advantage of that and also applied it to some of the ancillary departments as well. So with radiology, cardiology, diagnostic, and therapeutic areas. So it was an exciting opportunity for us.
