Five ways 3M is empowering professional fee coding.
3M understands there are multiple electronic health records (EHRs) in use today and that health care organizations often rely on diverse billing systems. To fit flexibly into such an environment, 3M’s powerful professional coding solutions can receive professional data from most EHR systems, assist the professional coding workflow and then send final codes back to a professional billing system—all in a synchronized manner.
3M has technology solutions based on artificial intelligence (AI) that fit the needs of all organization sizes and settings.
The 3M professional fee coding solutions feature alerts that help coders proactively address and comply with professional coding and billing rules. Built-in queries create open lines of communication between clinicians and coders.
In addition, evaluation and management (E/M) coding is appropriately tied to the documentation in a demonstrable way, resulting in more consistent and accurate E/M level assignment.
95% accuracy rate
Coders who use 3M may see their productivity increase up to 70 percent.
Thanks to 3M’s revolutionary professional coding workflow, coding teams can now simplify their efforts, reduce redundant work and unify their reporting.
35-70% increased productivity
With 3M, professional fee coders can rely on a coder-centric workflow that gathers all relevant information from the entire encounter to drive clean, accurate and compliant ICD-10 and CPT® coding. This approach, coupled with up-to-date clinical and regulatory updates, sophisticated alerts and query functionality, can help coders make accurate and compliant coding and billing decisions. The result? Confident coders.
For organizations where clinicians are doing most of the coding, 3M provides direct-to-bill functionality that allows for user-defined rules to automatically review and send appropriate claims directly to the billing system without additional clinician or coder intervention. This feature means you have a clean, compliant bill that significantly lowers your risk for denials and rework.
