3M Consulting Services

Accelerate clinical and operational progress

Hospitals know that success depends on constant improvement in one area or another. Call it what you will—surpassing benchmarks, bridging gaps, or optimizing results. The purpose is generally the same, to improve clinical and financial outcomes.

3M offers expertise to lead or supplement your efforts. Our consulting services address a variety of initiatives including clinical documentation improvement, ICD-10 education and preparation, quality improvement projects and regulatory compliance.

For some organizations, total outsourced coding is a viable option.
