Every year the scope of clinical documentation integrity (CDI) and coding roles continues to expand. What started as specific responsibility for improving the accuracy, clarity and specificity of documentation for financial reimbursement has evolved to include quality impacts such as hospital acquired conditions (HACs), patient safety indicators (PSIs), preventable events, hierarchical condition categories (HCCs) and quality risk methodologies. CDI and coding teams need to continually expand their knowledge of both reimbursement and quality and how they intersect. Time is of the essence.
How do you prioritize cases for expanded and accurate impact? Consider South Shore Health’s experience.
South Shore Health, the leading provider of emergency, acute and outpatient care south of Boston, had limited personnel and ever growing cases.
This not-for-profit organization went from struggling with coding related denials to doubling productivity with one tool. The prioritization feature in the 3M™ 360 Encompass™ System helps CDI teams focus on top priority cases with flexibility and customization. Less than two years after implementing priority worklists, South Shore Health captured an additional $7.4M annually. See full results and download here.
More than tripled revenue from CDI reviews each month
Achieved a 98% response rate from ICU providers
Increased monthly query percentage by 106%
Decreased sepsis denials by 6%
3M’s new priority worklist feature is designed to address the expanding scope of CDI. Get started out of the box with 3M default priority scoring backed by data insights from more than 2,500 hospitals. You can also modify scoring to meet your specific organizational goals.
Your team has a clinical picture before touching a case with our auto suggested content enabled. Auto suggested content is part of prioritization scoring as well as worklist filter criteria.
Key quality indicators are infused throughout the 3M 360 Encompass platform and built into prioritization factors and reporting. Identify potential quality flags concurrently. Know details of inclusion/exclusion criteria, methodology and reason for inclusion.
Your prioritized worklist updates in real time with new patient information or team actions. Lastly, your team will always know why cases are prioritized with full details in the expander row.
