3M 360 Encompass MD boosts ICD-10 documentation accuracy, reduces “copy-paste” compliance risk
Recent studies suggest that 30 to 70 percent of physician notes1
are duplicated from prior documents, which can lead to potentially
dangerous copied forward or duplicate data in the patient record.
“Documentation-assist features in the EHR provide improved efficiencies
for physicians, but there are significant risks,” said
3M Health Information Systems will showcase the new 3M 360 Encompass MD
System at the HIMSS 15 Conference and Exhibition,
3M 360 Encompass MD integrates with all major EHR systems to analyze available patient data—including EHR templates and dictated documents—and then identifies unclear, unspecified or missing diagnoses and gaps in documentation. It helps physicians prepare for ICD-10 by prompting them for more specificity as they are documenting and only when more information is required to meet coding guidelines. The intelligent copy-paste analysis tool, scheduled for release in late summer 2015, differentiates between appropriately copied content from prior notes and content that is high-risk for compliance and should be reviewed by the physician.
3M 360 Encompass MD is an add-on module to the 3M 360 Encompass System, extending its natural language processing (NLP) benefits to physicians. Healthcare organizations using 3M 360 Encompass for computer-assisted coding (CAC), clinical documentation improvement (CDI), quality metrics and analytics can now take the next step to more efficiently connect physicians with CDI teams.
More information about the 3M 360 Encompass MD System is available online or by calling 800-367-2447.
