3M™ Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) System
Taking clinical documentation to the next level
Hospitals that have completed the 3M™ DRG Assurance™ Program are already well on their way to more accurate measurement of patient severity of illness and risk of mortality, with the improvement in case mix index and reimbursement that accompanies it.
To sustain the momentum of hospital documentation improvement programs, the 3M Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) System offers a new automated concurrent review tool.
This leave-behind software is like having a 3M consultant at your side to help you stay up to date, maintain the improvements realized during your consulting engagement, and educate your staff and clinicians on the complexities of ICD-10.
With years of ICD-10 expertise on four continents, 3M has built the 3M CDI System on the power of the 3M™ Coding and Reimbursement System. Its new clinical documentation guidelines and embedded edits allow instant access to the information needed to support documentation decisions, including easy access to the clinical documentation improvement resources that are used most frequently.
The best opportunity to collect pertinent documentation is prior to patient discharge. And more specific information is captured when a physician can respond to inquiries from a well-trained review staff. The 3M CDI System is designed to support this interaction by providing your staff with concepts to create clinically driven questions.
3M CDI System and ICD-10
The 3M CDI System reflects 3M leadership with ICD-10 and guides clinicians and HIM professionals in capturing the more specific documentation required to support ICD-10 coding.
The 3M CDI System helps hospitals better document the care they provide and increase the accuracy of their case mix index. The result is full, appropriate reimbursement for services provided.
Accurate outcomes metrics
The 3M CDI System helps improve the accuracy of hospital and physician outcomes profiling, reflecting more appropriately your patient population’s severity of illness and risk of mortality.
Complete clinical documentation
The 3M CDI System provides guidelines and edits during concurrent chart review and facilitates clinical queries. The results are fewer chart deficiencies and more complete documentation.
Confidence in compliance
The 3M CDI System helps specialists identify potential compliance risks and frequently missed concepts. With its regular updates, 3M CDI System can help hospitals adapt to changes in Medicare and Medicaid regulations.
