CodeRyte inks 3M deal
3M Health Information Systems and CodeRyte have signed an agreement to integrate CodeRyte's outpatient computer-assisted coding technology with the 3M Codefinder Software to produce the 3M Codefinder Auto Edition, powered by CodeRyte technology.

The new tool uses clinical language processing to automate the outpatient coding process, allowing coders to focus on coding accuracy and compliance, according to 3M and the Bethesda, Md.-based CodeRyte.

The Salt Lake City-based 3M said the 3M Codefinder Auto Edition for outpatient coding complements its 3M Codefinder Computer-Assisted Edition for inpatient coding. Both software products are add-on modules of the 3M Coding and Reimbursement System, so healthcare facilities can work with a single vendor for an integrated inpatient and outpatient medical coding solution, according to 3M.
