3M's New Coding Solution for Hospitals
MMM ITT CODI
3M Health Information Systems, a division of
3M Company ( MMM - Analyst Report) , recently introduced a simple to install and easy-to-use Computer Assisted Coding (CAC) solution for rural and community-based hospitals. The full CAC software application, which is an add-on module to the 3M Coding and Reimbursement System used in over 5,000 healthcare organizations across the globe, is expected to be released by fourth quarter 2013.
