Orlando, Florida (June 11, 2009) – CollaborateMD has signed an agreement with 3M Health Information Systems to offer 3M’s medical necessity coding content integrated with the CollaborateMD medical billing software application. 3M’s content combined with the CollaborateMD application will help healthcare providers reduce claim denials, shorten A/R cycles, and enhance workflow efficiency.
With the agreement, CollaborateMD customers will gain access to the 3M Medical Necessity and Compliance content, which allows users to access current and historic Medicare and selected Medicaid data sets, as well as national and local coverage determinations. 3M’s industry-leading medical necessity content is created and maintained by a skilled team of healthcare policy and coding specialists.
