TCB Consulting And SOAP Team To Offer Coding Services And CDI/CAC Systems

SOAP and TCB Consulting have looked closely at ways to help with the transition to ICD-10, to help with “doing more with less” in HIM including  better approaches to data capture, deficiencies, coding, clinical documentation improvement and HIM operations overall. Working together, TCB and SOAP bring unique products and services to healthcare to enable providers and payers to have high quality clinical documentation with actionable data to enable efficiencies within various departments and functional areas.

  • Since training and the transition to ICD-10 will take coders away from maintaining your Medical Record Days in AR, TCB can provide support and keep your revenue flowing without the expense of overtime and coder burnout.  They can provide back up ICD-9 coding allowing your staff to focus on ICD-10 and not have to dual code.   This approach is very helpful during a transition to ICD-10. 
  • “As the HIM Manager at Pennock Health Services, I have been acquainted with TCB Consulting for the past seven years.  We have used TCB to provide contract coding services for backlog and vacation coverage.  TCB’s staff is well-trained, professional and personal.  Along with their coding services we have used their consulting services for coder training and coding audits, and will be using TCB for ICD-10 training.  We are happy to recommend TCB Consulting to anyone who is looking for contract coders, training or auditing services.”- Robyn Todd, CCS, HIM Manager, Pennock Health Services
  • “One of the biggest problems in the coding process is assuring the quality of clinical documentation and the interaction with physicians.  Good qualified coders are not only concerned with the speed and accuracy of the codes they are also concerned about the accuracy behind the clinical documentation that supports the codes and patient care”, says Tracy Rowland, President of TCB Consulting.
  • “With the implementations of ICD-10, Affordable Care Act, and Value-Based Purchasing, many executives are concerned about how they can do more with fewer people.  And since patient care is under scrutiny from a wide variety of sources and the impact on costs and revenue is dramatic, healthcare providers and payers alike are looking at ways to eliminate any gaps – cultural, financial, operational, etc.” states Dave LeBoeuf, VP of Business Development at SOAP.
