Government healthcare initiatives are mandating a value based payment model. There are multiple quality measures required by clinical reporting programs such as Meaningful Use (MU), Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) and Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). Managing the numerous standard terminologies and value sets to calculate these measures can be daunting.
The 3M HDD maintains terminologies and value sets that enable users to report on measures, analyze outcomes and improve quality. The 3M HDD also enables hospitals to use clinically relevant information from Certified EHR Technology (CEHRT) to identify patient-specific education resources and provide those resources to the patient. Users can also add their own terminologies, custom map sets and value sets, supporting their organizations to reach value based goals.
Use Case: Identification of Patient-Specific Education Resources
A 3M customer provides healthcare education information to medical facilities and applications. Its patient education library contains over 15,000 brochures, articles, videos and other types of materials. 3M associated (mapped) each informational material with the relevant standard terminology codes from SNOMED CT, LOINC, RxNorm, ICD-9-CM, ICD-10-CM, ICD-10-PCS, CPT, and HCPCS, so these codes in a patient record can “trigger” the offering of the appropriate informational material, using the mappings in the 3M HDD implemented in the customer system.
