Sharp HealthCare to automate medical records with 3M 360 Encompass System

San Diego-based Sharp HealthCare has selected the 3M 360 Encompass System to integrate and automate medical records coding, clinical documentation improvement and performance monitoring across all Sharp facilities.

Sharp will implement the 3M 360 Encompass System with its Cerner electronic health medical record (EMR) to address the inefficiencies of multiple coding and documentation workflows and the added costs of unconnected systems.

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, the new national health care coding standard.

Sharp says the technology from 3M Health Information Systems will help the health care provider achieve “greater coding productivity, complete documentation for better coded data, more accurate reimbursement and actionable data to improve patient care processes.”
