3M helps State of Minnesota with data analytics

The State of Minnesota has selected 3M for its data analytics to improve the quality and value of the care provided to Minnesota citizens served by public health care.

The 3M Health Information Systems will support Minnesota’s Integrated Health Partnership (IHP) demonstration, initiative that tests new approaches to health care delivery and payment.

The company said Minnesota IHP organizations can analyze cost of care, utilization of services, and risk data by providing data management, analysis, and data access and reporting resource.

Additionally, 3M technology and analytics are used throughout health care in prospective payment systems, quality outcomes measurement, risk stratification and analysis, and population health management.

This apart, for comparative reporting of hospital quality, State Medicaid agencies, hospital associations, and payer-provider collaboratives in more than 30 states use 3M patient classification methodologies.


The federal Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) in 2013 awarded the Minnesota Departments of Human Services with $45 million State Innovation Model (SIM) cooperative agreement to implement the Minnesota Accountable Health Model.

“We look forward to supporting the state’s efforts with advanced analytic tools and meaningful data that can be used to encourage preventive care and reward healthy outcomes,” said William Kelly, senior vice president, Population and Payment Solutions for 3M Health Information Systems.

Last year in November, 3M Health Information Systems was awarded a contract to support Rhode Island’s recently launched Rhode Island All-Payer Claims Database (RI-APCD).
