Let’s talk.

The 3M Let’s Talk Webinar Series offers in-depth sessions with 3M experts about patient classification methodologies. The webinars focus on 3M methodologies and how it creates a common language for defining and measuring risk adjustment, payment, reporting and quality improvement to assist both payers and providers, clinical and financial managers.

    Let’s talk: Creating a common inpatient language for value

    How can you create a common language between clinicians and managers, to enable behavioral change? Start with an approach that is categorical and clinically credible like 3M™ All Patient Refined DRGs (APR DRGs).

    During this webinar 3M experts described key features of the 3M APR DRGs, how they are commonly used by payers and providers and the impact they have on creating value.

    Let’s talk: Creating a common outpatient language for value

    How can you create a common language to enable behavior change for clinical and financial managers, and payers and providers? Start with an approach that captures the current changes in clinical practice and resources used to provide a broader, more inclusive classification of outpatient care like 3M™ Enhanced Ambulatory Patient Groups (EAPGs).

    Let’s talk: Creating a common language for population health

    How can you create a common language between payers and providers to understand individual health status and health care cost? Start with the 3M™ Clinical Risk Groups (CRGs), a patient classification methodology that uses inpatient and ambulatory diagnosis and procedure codes to categorize every person in a patient population to a single, clinically meaningful risk group.

    During this webinar 3M experts described key features of 3M CRGs, how they are used to manage patient care and how they have an impact on population health management.

    Let’s talk: Creating a common language for outcome measurement using 3M PPEs

    To measure and improve key health outcomes, approximately two dozen government agencies, payers, providers and researchers rely on the 3M™ Potentially Preventable Events methodologies. Each methodology – hospital admissions, readmissions, emergency department visits, inpatient complications and ancillary services – identifies costly services that would be unnecessary if effective care had been delivered from the outset. Each methodology includes detailed logic to exclude non-preventable events and adjust for differences in patient case mix.
