3M grouping software for potentially preventable events
Reduce preventable, avoidable events
Health complications and unexpected hospital visits are more than clinical setbacks. They can impose significant costs on patients and providers. With the trend toward quality report cards, bundled payments and accountable care, payers and providers need tools to identify and reduce preventable hospitalizations, ED visits and unnecessary tests within their patient population. The end results—improved quality and reduced costs.
3M offers software to manage the full spectrum of potentially preventable events (PPEs), from admissions to ancillary services, and across all payers and patient populations. Our solutions allow you to identify hospitalizations, hospital-acquired complications (HACs), ED visits and ancillary services that may be preventable and thus help you avoid their associated costs. These solutions include:
3M™ Potentially Preventable Readmissions (PPR) Grouping Software
3M™ Potentially Preventable Complications (PPC) Grouping Software
3M™ Population-focused Preventables Software for identifying preventable hospital admissions, ED visits and ancillary services
Features and benefits
Our grouping software is based on the 3M™ APR DRG Classification System, 3M™ Enhanced Ambulatory Payment Grouping System and 3M™ Clinical Risk Grouping Software, three well-established methodologies used by over 30 state agencies for quality reporting and payment.
The software risk adjusts patient data for severity of illness and risk of mortality to correctly represent the true clinical burden of patients within a population. This creates a common measurement across disparate patient types.
Promote cost-effective care
As part of a quality improvement program, 3M grouping software can be used to identify and predict potential quality problems and target areas for improvement of preventive services, care coordination and patient safety.
