3M's expert team of clinical and coding experts are equipped to guide hospitals in their clinical documentation improvement journey. Great clinical documentation improvement programs are built on the goal of ensuring every record accurately and fully captures the complete picture of the episode of patient care while the patient is still admitted. Aside from more accurate reimbursement, another important benefit is better patient care since all those involved with treating the patient are fully informed.
The DDD App encourages clinicians to use more diagnoses terms in the documentation. This helps with the clinical coding process and performance reporting. It also prompts clinicians to document Hospital Acquired Complications (HACs) in the appropriate situations so that the hospital has an accurate measure of their quality and safety metrics.
