TCI coding newsletters are generally monthly publications with eight pages of original, expertly sourced content geared toward a particular coding specialty or facet of healthcare delivery or business. While most TCI healthcare newsletters are monthly, there are some biweekly or weekly.
A coding newsletter is a publication that teaches coders how to code. The focus is on practices (as in, physicians working in offices and not hospitals). A coding newsletter is designed to educate the readers on coding issues, while not appearing like an instructional document. Through the use of quotes from live sources, examples of clinical coding scenarios, and writing style, we create a “newsy” type of publication that reads much more interestingly, and proves more effective and illuminating, than just writing about the codes in a more academic sense. You get real-world scenarios, applicable tips, and must-know insight in a conversational style.
Our non-coding healthcare newsletters offer detailed coverage of reimbursement, legal, and business issues. You’ll find topics about fraud and abuse, quality improvement, compliance, regulations, and so on. These are often news based and offer expert analysis deciphering these topics.
Coding newsletters are specialty specific (such as, cardiology, ob-gyn, orthopedics, etc.). Healthcare newsletters deal with compliance and practice management topics as well as post-acute care, including MDS, home health, and hospice.
