3M™ Quality Services
A hospital quality director knows it is her job to protect her organization’s reputation and reduce financial risk. She now operates in a world focused on outcomes. Hospital quality scores are public on the Internet. It has never been more important for her hospital’s public-facing report cards to accurately reflect her hospital's actual performance.

||Quality data vs quantity of data
The EHR brings more data but no necessarily better data. Our goal is to make sure the detail needed for ICD-10 is there."

Accurate clinical documentation drives quality
A hospital quality director also knows her organization’s clinical documentation—the data captured by physicians, refined by CDI specialists, coded for reimbursement, and analyzed for reporting—must be accurate and complete to give a true picture of a hospital’s performance.
3M™ Quality Services helps quality leaders and CDI managers identify the root causes of quality issues by first determining the accuracy of documentation. Once root causes are uncovered, 3M consultants can work closely with hospital teams to develop a customer-specific workflow and training program focused on sustaining improvements.
