Advice in changing to 3M product for Clinical Documentation Specialists

  1. 0
    Does your hospital use 3M's CDIS software? We are a 450 bed hospital with a 3+ year documentation program using software that takes too much "clerical" time, has no encoder nor grouper, and does not link with the coding staff, so we are considering a change. Am asking for opinions from experienced CDIS users of the pros and cons of 3Ms CDIS system. In particular am looking for
    automating, as much as possible, the CDS workflow as well as the reconciliation process with the coding staff.
    overall pros and cons
    pros and cons of standard reports and/or capability of development of reports
    best feature / worse feature

    Thanks for any input provided.

    i haven't used the 3m product but i recently purchased chartwise to address the same concerns you have had. i have been more than pleased. we have been able to move from doing only medicare reviews to now reviewing all patients due to the decreased manual/clerical workload. i would be more than happy to talk to you about how chartwise is working for us. in case you're interested....
