Healthcare pay for performance
Achieve cost-effective patient care
Quality management is a rapid-response, fast-action service. On a case-by-case basis, decisions have to be made quickly to coordinate resources for appropriate patient care. At stake are the patient’s clinical outcomes and the hospital’s standards for regulatory compliance, length of stay, reimbursement, core measures and reporting practices.
3M solutions support quality management in the shift toward pay-for-performance and accountable care with tools to:
- Evaluate quality indicators
- Identify and control adverse events and outcomes
- Coordinate cost-effective care
- Manage resource utilization
- Reduce avoidable delays in patient care
- Automate workflow across departments
- Comply with corrective action improvement plans
- Supply required quality reports
Modules for care planning and quality management combine case management, utilization review, social services, discharge planning, patient financial services, and quality reporting into a single-streamlined system—equipping decision makers with real-time communications and up-to-the minute patient data.
This comprehensive assessment solution helps to minimize risk and improve patient safety. It can track unanticipated, undesirable healthcare events or “near misses” as well as accidents, theft, loss, complaints and assault, helping facilities identify exposure to risk early and respond promptly to maintain overall patient safety.
3M grouping software can be used to identify and avoid potentially preventable events, from admissions and hospital-acquired conditions to ancillary services, helping organizations improve care delivery, quality metrics, and financial results.
The only end-to-end coding and documentation improvement system built on the 3M logic for grouping and reimbursement. The 3M 360 Encompass System helps hospitals identify present-on-admissions conditions, manage length of stay and better represent risk of mortality and severity of illness.
