Hire a Coder or Use The Coding Network?

Trying to build your own coding operation is difficult, expensive and often results in suboptimal performance.  With TCN’s network of coders, we offer the following advantages in-house coding teams simply cannot match:

  • TCN’s network of coders is spread across the United States
    • Whereas most in-house coding departments are limited to attracting coding talent located in close proximity to their office, TCN has built a network of coders comprised of the best talent in the U.S. irrespective of location
  • All coders are specialized, experienced and vetted
    • Each TCN coder is focused on a singular specialty, has a minimum of 3 years’ experience in their specialty, has passed a rigorous coding screening test in their specialty, and is subject to ongoing Q/A
  • TCN charges for most of its coding services on a per case/encounter/operation basis
    • Only pay for the exact amount of work you need performed
  • Never worry about your coder being out, turning over or a backlog building up
    • TCN automatically connects you with the requisite number of coders to ensure that vacations, sick-leave, turnover or underperformance never impacts your turnaround times
