The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System Awards Contract to 3M for 3M 360 Encompass System
The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System, one of the world's premier academic medical centers, has selected the 3M 360 Encompass System to integrate and automate coding, clinical documentation improvement (CDI), and performance monitoring in a single workflow. The advanced technology from 3M Health Information Systems will help the organization capture complete documentation, improve coding accuracy, speed time to billing, and report outcomes data that truly reflects the care provided.
The 3M 360 Encompass System addresses the inefficiencies of multiple coding and documentation processes and the added costs of unconnected systems, offering a breakthrough answer to the challenges of healthcare reform and ICD-10. The 3M solution promotes complete capture of patient severity in physician documentation to improve case mix and significantly reduces the time and resources needed to prepare physicians for ICD-10.
Healthcare industry adoption of the 3M 360 Encompass System is well underway. The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System joins more than 40 leading healthcare organizations that have awarded contracts to 3M for the new integrated solution.
With the 3M Coding and Reimbursement System as its foundation, the 3M 360 Encompass System incorporates complete ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS coding content. The application natively codes in ICD-10 and enables coding in ICD-9 while viewing the ICD-10 equivalent. 3M is an international leader in coding and patient classification systems with more than 5,000 hospitals worldwide using 3M coding solutions to code and group patient data for decision support, quality measurement, and reimbursement.
