3M™ Coding and Reimbursement System

More accurate medical coding and improved case mix

As ICD-10 approaches, medical coding will require increased precision. That's why most hospitals in the U.S. already depend on the functionality and reliability of the 3M Coding and Reimbursement System (CRS) for accurate, compliant coding.

Top-rated software for proven resultsIn fact, 3M™ Codefinder™ Software consistently ranks as the top coding software by an industry researcher.* Plus, hospitals using 3M CRS see greater year-to-year improvement in their case mix index than non-3M hospitals.

3M CRS is a sophisticated yet easy-to-use suite of tools that generates accurate, complete, and compliant coding and grouping. It supports coders with powerful coding logic, giving them the confidence of knowing their judgments are backed by 3M experts and nosologists.

The 3M CRS is a complete product line, with modular components designed to work together according to your needs:

  • 3M™ Codefinder™ Software: Helps you manage the complex rules and terminology of ICD-9-CM and ICD-10 coding, following mandated rules, principles, and guidelines.
  • 3M™ Advanced Analyzer Software: Prompts for specificity in the clinical documentation at the end of a coding session to help coders and CDI specialists assign the most precise ICD-9-CM and ICD-10 diagnosis codes. Using the clinical logic of the 3M™ APR DRG Classification System, 3M Advanced Analyzer accurately captures the patient’s severity of illness and risk of mortality.
  • 3M™ DRGfinder™ Software: With MCE and proprietary 3M edits, 3M DRGfinder Software provides accurate MS-DRG grouping capabilities for Medicare and identifies complications and co-morbidities.
