3M™ Advanced Analyzer Software
Deep analysis of your codes
Severity-adjusted payment models demand precise attention to the risk factors that affect your sickest patients. Gender, age, risk factors, conditions and symptoms impact MS-DRGs, severity of illness (SOI) and risk of mortality (ROM), which in turn can make a significant difference in reimbursement and quality reporting.
3M Advanced Analyzer Software, a module of the 3M™ Coding and Reimbursement System and the 3M™ 360 Encompass™ System, prompts users for specificity in the clinical documentation at the end of a coding session. Providing coding guidelines and nosology help, it assists coders and clinical documentation specialists in assigning the most precise ICD-9-CM and ICD-10 diagnosis codes to accurately reflect the patient’s SOI and ROM.
Features and benefits
More precise and comprehensive diagnosis codes
The software prompts users for specificity in the clinical documentation, such as complications and co-morbidities that could affect MS-DRG assignment. An optional feature can also alert users to potentially missing codes based on the medications administered to the patient.
Compares the effect of DRG assignments
When combined with the 3M™ APR DRG Software for grouping, the 3M Advanced Analyzer Software also calculates and compares the key differences between CMS DRG and MS-DRG assignment, hospital-acquired conditions (HACs), SOI and ROM.
Accurate quality reporting
Because the 3M Advanced Analyzer Software helps to define the patient mix, it allows healthcare providers to represent core measures and other metrics more accurately in quality reports, both internally and publicly.
Efficient coding workflow
The 3M Advanced Analyzer Software integrates seamlessly with the 3M Coding and Reimbursement System. The easy-to-use capabilities support staff education and documentation improvement.
