3M Teams With MedPartners HIM To Offer Outsourced Staffing Services For Clinical Documentation Improvement

Stocks in this article: MMM

3M Health Information Systems has signed an agreement with MedPartners HIM to offer the company’s credentialed clinical documentation improvement (CDI) staffing resources with 3M’s complete suite of ICD-10 and CDI consulting services and software. The integrated outsourcing service will help hospitals and health systems manage both interim and long-term CDI staffing required for organizational CDI initiatives and to prepare for ICD-10 implementation in October 2014.

CDI staffing from MedPartners HIM supports 3M’s extensive program of ICD-10 consulting services and 3M DRG Assurance, the healthcare industry’s leading CDI consulting program, which has been used by 1,500 U.S. healthcare organizations to achieve more precise clinical documentation, accurate quality outcomes data and reimbursement, and to maintain regulatory compliance.

Terri McCubbin Graves, RN, director of Consulting Services for 3M Health Information Systems, said the outsourcing agreement with MedPartners HIM extends 3M consulting programs to address the healthcare industry’s shortage of qualified CDI specialists. “Many healthcare facilities have asked us for help in obtaining on-demand CDI staff during this critical preparation time leading up to ICD-10,” McCubbin Graves said. “Working with MedPartners allows us to offer experienced CDI specialists as part of a comprehensive consulting program that is customized to our clients’ needs and documentation quality goals.”

“We are excited about partnering with 3M, a major force in the healthcare industry and a leading CDI solutions provider,” said George Klimis, vice president, CDI and Acute Care Case Management Services for MedPartners HIM. “Both of our organizations are invested in providing the highest quality services and best talent available to our clients.”
