One school of medicine powers past status quo
With more than 30 years of coding expertise, 3M combines the right coding tools with the right processes to enable coding teams to become professional coding experts. Many of the nation’s top physician practices, billing companies and multi-specialty clinics rely on 3M as the centerpiece of their facility (inpatient, outpatient, ambulatory) and professional coding operations.
Our solutions streamline the coding process by auto-suggesting correct billing codes and empowering improved coding workflow processes. The integrated technology—powered by 3M-proprietary natural language understanding (NLU)—imports reports directly from operational information systems and exports billing codes back into the organization’s billing system.
Let’s see how we can empower coding change together.
Decades of coding experience, hundreds of clients, and a top-notch team of professional, certified coding experts are available to help ensure your team’s success.
3M helps organizations achieve dramatic productivity improvements. Our technology quickly helps eliminate backlogs and any associated overtime, as well as reduce turnaround time, denials and A/R days. Automated, front-end integrity checks also help coders resolve issues before codes enter the billing system, where corrections or denial management become more time-consuming and cost prohibitive.
Be certain both sides of your worlds are unified. To thrive in an increasingly cohesive and fast-moving environment, healthcare delivery networks and large hospitals need to bridge clinical documentation and all coding workflows. 3M™ 360 Encompass™ Professional System does just that.
360 Encompass Professional breaks down the barriers between professional services and facility coding by allowing you to reconcile professional coding with the outpatient facility version. Yes, that means one platform for all coders! Physicians can respond to queries right in their electronic health record (EHR) workflow, resulting in better documentation.
3M℠ CodeAssist℠ System is an easy-to-use, web-based application that automates the coding process by identifying billing codes and streamlining the coding workflow process. Rooted in NLU, the integrated technology imports physician documentation from the clinical reports and exports billing codes back into the organization’s billing system. With new power search functionality, high-speed searches can be done for a specific word or phrase within 3M CodeAssist in order to find potential data problems. 3M technology searches words and phrases in the coded medical record and metadata to find out the physician who coded it, to find a specific code or what a coder approved.
3M℠ CodeComplete℠ Services is a fully outsourced service that offers clients a 48-hour turnaround time for coded medical records. 3M’s team of certified coders provide medical and surgical coding for technical and professional services, delivering CPT® coding, ICDs, DRGs, APCs and associated modifiers, as well as PQRS codes and modifiers. Clients who leverage this offering – either periodically for backlogs or regularly as part of a comprehensive approach – experience reductions in turnaround times, denials and A/R days.
