3M™ CAC System for Small Hospitals

Computer-assisted coding technology that’s sized just right

Hospitals and integrated delivery networks (IDNs) look to computer-assisted coding (CAC) technology to meet their daily coding challenges. Often, this technology comes at a large cost—not just for the tools that provide the technology, but also for extensive implementation cycles, increased coding and IT staffs, hardware costs, and complex interface requirements.

Small hospitals have daily coding challenges on a different scale, but they can also benefit from a CAC solution that’s sized for their needs and resources. The 3M CAC System for Small Hospitals brings all the advantages of CAC technology within reach of small hospitals. It delivers 3M’s advanced computer-assisted coding in an affordable solution that’s fast to install, easy to use and convenient to maintain.

Features and benefits

Built on advanced CAC technology

Just because it’s designed from the ground up for small hospitals doesn’t mean the 3M CAC System for Small Hospitals is diluted technology: It uses the same robust, continually-updated natural language processing (NLP) engine developed by expert 3M clinicians and nosologists and deployed in all our CAC solutions.

Quality coding drives financial performance

Incomplete and inconsistent coding means unrealized reimbursement. The 3M CAC System for Small Hospitals delivers complete, consistent, quality coding that can help improve your hospital’s case mix index (CMI).

Fewer IT needs

The 3M CAC System for Small Hospitals is designed with IT staffing realities in mind:

  • No additional hardware needs
  • No additional interfaces required
  • Simple update process streamlines maintenance

Helping small hospitals

3M understands that small hospitals have an important role in providing healthcare in communities all across the U.S. We also understand that a lack of resources can be an obstacle to adding the technology you need. That’s why we developed a full spectrum of products and services that are designed and priced for small hospitals.
