3M Outpatient CDI is a documentation and workflow review that provides a comprehensive assessment of the organizations’ clinical documentation and coding practices that impact the outpatient revenue cycle. Normally a cumbersome process that few organization undertake, 3M is in a unique position to either manually review a set amount of data or leverage our NLP capabilities to assess 100 percent of physician documentation (over a set period of time) to uncover gaps and inconsistencies between clinical dictation, structured EHR data, and coding. A wrap-around 3M Outpatient CDI Program consulting service is available in which findings are used to educate physicians and staff on the dictation best practices needed to accurately code and charge for outpatient visits. CDI specialists review back-end charge entries to uncover the major causes of denials, physician queries and rework. Combined with our thorough workflow analysis, organizations can accelerate their revenue cycles and improve charge capture, coding, reimbursement and compliance whether coding for ICD-9 or ICD-10.
