3M Health Information Systems has enhanced its market-leading 3M Coding and Reimbursement System with advanced ICD-10 training tools to prepare coders for the new ICD-10 national coding standard. With a simple click of a button, coders can access interactive ICD-10 coding paths during a regular coding session, making it possible to practice ICD-10 code assignment. The software's expert logic trains coders in real-time ICD-10 coding, helping hospital Health Information Management (HIM) departments achieve a successful ICD-10 transition.
The new ICD-10 training tools are available at no additional cost to 3M coding clients in the United States as part of the product’s regular software upgrade. The 3M Coding and Reimbursement System is the industry’s leading encoding system, used in more than 5,000 healthcare settings worldwide by HIM departments to code and group patient data for decision support, quality measurement, and reimbursement.
