3M™ APCfinder™ Software

Industry-leading OPPS software*

Outpatient services are a fast-growing revenue stream. With so many market and regulatory payment pressures, it is critical for healthcare providers to accurately code outpatient records and model reimbursement. And they prefer 3M over all other vendors to help them.*

3M APCfinder Software, a module of the 3M™ Coding and Reimbursement System (CRS), incorporates the most up-to-date outpatient prospective payment system (OPPS) regulations. It enables coders to code and group individual outpatient records and also provides estimated payment information for Ambulatory Payment Classifications (APCs), fee schedules, and beneficiary co-payments. 3M APCfinder Software provides APC data not just for Medicare patients, but for your entire outpatient population. The software gives you precise grouping capabilities that can help you track resource usage, refine financial models, and sharpen your competitive edge.

3M APCfinder Software can help:

  • Improve outpatient coding accuracy and completeness
  • Submit accurate claims
  • Resolve coding and claims issues that may impact claims processing by the fiscal intermediary (FI) or the Medicare administrative contractor (MAC), which can in turn affect cash flow and hospital revenues
  • Estimate reimbursement
  • Manage denials
  • Forecast revenue

As with all 3M coding and grouping applications, the 3M APCfinder Software is routinely updated to comply with changing regulatory standards.
