  • What’s with the tree?
    The 3M™ Coding and Reimbursement System (CRS) has been trusted by medical facilities for more than three decades to provide accurate, complete and compliant medical record coding. Rather than re-create coding books in a software package, 3M CRS applies sophisticated decision trees created by veteran nosologists to help coders find accurate codes more efficiently. Each time, every time.
  • Need accurate reimbursement?
    3M CRS has a dynamic user interface that seamlessly displays multiple Diagnosis-Related Groups (DRGs) and other associated data in a constantly computed state. When appropriate, 3M CRS prompts coders to consider potentially necessary modifiers that could impact reimbursement.
  • Want to increase productivity?
    An innovative, patent-protected coder workflow combines 3M’s exclusive logic-based coding paths with an enhanced ICD-10-PCS table-driven design—all of which can help simplify coding and improve coder productivity.
