ICD-10 offers increased specificity and requires more complete and precise documentation. To avoid legal and financial risk, healthcare organizations face the challenge of transitioning systems and processes and educating their teams on the broad impact of ICD-10.
As you prepare for ICD-10, you can leverage 30 years of 3M clinical coding experience and the know-how of more than 100 credentialed 3M coding experts, plus a decade of ICD-10 implementation experience in five countries.
An established thought leader in ICD-10 classification, 3M provides comprehensive tools and services to identify areas of risk, improve documentation, increase coding efficiency, translate codes, map and convert your systems, and educate your staff—solutions for a successful ICD-10 implementation.
How 3M became the ICD-10 leader
Under contract with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), 3M designed and developed the ICD-10 Procedure Coding System (ICD-10 PCS) and the General Equivalence Mappings (GEMs). 3M also completed the initial conversion of the CMS MS-DRGs to ICD-10.
Coders need a deeper understanding of anatomy and physiology to code as thoroughly as possible in ICD-10 to reflect the patient's severity of illness, support accurate reimbursement, and relay outcomes.
3M experts can help you understand where to focus your energy for the ICD-10 transition. 3M offers in-depth ICD-10 training and services to help you identify areas of risk, map workflows, and convert your systems.
To avoid costly legal and financial risks once ICD-10 is implemented, 3M offers software tools and services for both providers and payers to help translate the ICD-9 codes embedded in an organization’s systems and documents.
Built on the 3M logic for grouping and reimbursement, this breakthrough automated intelligence solution includes clinical documentation improvement for clinicians, auto-coding for HIM professionals, and monitoring and reporting tools for administrators.
Millions of dollars are lost annually due to staffing shortages, coding backlogs, delays and inaccuracies. 3M offers LexiCode’s qualified, credentialed coding and CDI resources to help healthcare facilities maintain current CDI initiatives, coding workflow, reduce backlogs and keep your ICD-10 conversion on schedule.
