3M Health Information Systems has signed a strategic agreement with Healthland to license 3M coding, grouping, editing and reimbursement software products. Healthland will integrate the 3M solutions with its electronic health record (EHR) system and other applications to provide customers with actionable information that can be used to improve clinical outcomes, obtain appropriate reimbursement, facilitate quality reporting and prepare for ICD-10.
