Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) June 18, 2010
3M Health Information Systems will showcase new consulting services and advanced software tools at the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) Annual National Institute (ANI), June 20-23, in Las Vegas, NV. Healthcare finance professionals can take advantage of 3M’s expert resources to begin critical transition planning for the new ICD-10 code sets, scheduled to be implemented nationwide in 2013.
3M’s booth, #201 on the exhibit floor, will feature the 3M™ DRG Assurance™ Program, a clinical documentation improvement program that supports the complete and accurate capture of a patient’s severity of illness and risk of mortality in the patient record. 3M DRG Assurance clients typically see an increase in case mix index of 2-4%, with an average 4:1 financial return in the first year of the program.
3M DRG Assurance is enhanced with the 3M™ Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) System, a unique leave-behind software tool that provides clinical documentation guidelines and edits interactively during concurrent chart review, helping organizations sustain documentation improvements over time.
Conference attendees can learn more about ICD-10 and other topics, including computer-assisted coding and how to link quality and financial performance, by viewing expert presentations in the 3M booth theater. 3M also will be presenting two education sessions on the HFMA ANI conference agenda:
“ICD-10: A Roadmap for Success,” Wed., June 23, 7:30am, Caroline Piselli, 3M ICD-10 and Pay for Performance Manager
“Aligning Quality Outcomes with Financial Performance,” Mon., June 21, 10:30am, Garri Garrison, 3M Director of Acute Care Consulting, with Susan Belley, Coding Manager, Cleveland Clinic.
With more than 35,000 members, HFMA is the nation's leading membership organization for healthcare financial management professionals. The 2010 HFMA ANI will be held at the Las Vegas Sands Expo Center, June 20-23.
