August 13, 2012

3M Health Information Systems has signed a strategic agreement with Healthland to license 3M coding, grouping, editing and reimbursement software products. Healthland will integrate the 3M solutions with its electronic health record (EHR) system and other applications to provide customers with actionable information that can be used to improve clinical outcomes, obtain appropriate reimbursement, facilitate quality reporting and prepare for ICD-10.

“Timely and accurate reimbursements are critical for our clients. We are dedicated to providing solutions to help meet the financial and regulatory demands of the rural healthcare market,” said Michael Karaman, Healthland senior vice president for product. “Our agreement with 3M will help our clients manage these types of challenges more efficiently, allowing them to focus on delivering quality patient care to the communities they serve.”

The agreement includes the 3M Coding and Reimbursement System, 3M’s coding software used by more than 5,000 hospitals worldwide and 3M Grouper Plus Content Services, which delivers regulatory and 3M-proprietary content from a 3M-hosted, cloud-computing environment. Healthland has licensed regulatory data and logic for CMS MS-DRGs, Ambulatory Payment Classifications (APCs). Long-term Care DRGs, and Medical Necessity edits.

“By offering data maintained in the cloud, 3M coding experts can make core regulatory changes as they occur,” said Ray Terrill, senior vice president, 3M Health Information Systems. “Immediate access to up-to-date prospective payment methodologies means that Healthland can quickly enhance its applications and help their clients keep pace with a dynamic regulatory environment.”
