Palmetto Health, the largest health care system in the Midlands of South Carolina, has selected the 3M 360 Encompass System to integrate and automate medical records coding, clinical documentation improvement (CDI), and performance monitoring across its four acute-care hospitals.

Palmetto Health will integrate the 3M 360 Encompass with its Cerner electronic health record system to provide a common view of patient information across all coding and CDI processes. The advanced technology from 3M will help Palmetto increase coder productivity and achieve complete physician documentation, both critical components of the organization’s transition plan for ICD 10.

Palmetto Health also uses 3M’s Coding and Reimbursement System, Health Record Management Software for clinical abstracting, and the 3M Ambulatory Revenue Management System.
