3M™ PFS Document Management Software
Streamline your patient financial services
Patient Financial Services (PFS) departments maintain large quantities of documentation related to patient billing and collection efforts that are critical to your financial viability. This documentation can be specific to the patient, visit, insurer and/or a policy and procedure. In addition to their own document management, storage, retention and retrieval needs, PFS departments also require access to clinical data and documentation to support the billing and collection processes. In most cases, timely access to information facilitates timely and accurate reimbursement.
Traditional paper storage and retrieval processes are costly, require staff and are burdened by slow retrieval times and lost or missing documentation. Requests from other departments take even longer and access is limited to one official paper copy of clinical documentation.
The 3M Patient Financial Services (PFS) Document Management Software is a cost-effective document capture and storage solution that allows you to create electronic versions of patient accounting records and then store them in one location for easy referral and retrieval.
Features and benefits
Accurate and thorough
The 3M PFS Document Management Software integrates data from dictation, registration and order entry systems to help departments compile complete patient billing information.
The 3M PFS Document Management Software saves time, making documents immediately available once scanned. Documents are easily retrievable when needed, such as when requested by payers to support claim payment, and easily accessed by user-configurable information views. All external patient accounting documents can reside in one location, too, boosting efficiency and reducing the operational cost of document storage and retrieval.
Secure and compliant
The software supports compliance with HIPAA requirements and regulatory rules to protect personal health information. It can restrict access to sensitive document types according to user profiles.
3M PFS Document Management Software and other 3M applications for document management are compatible with industry-standard PC and networking technology, such as Microsoft® Windows® XP and Windows® 7.
