Tampa Hospitals Face Recruiting Crisis for Medical Coders!
Tampa, FL– July 17, 2008 - “A $2 million, 30-day inpatient stay could net a hospital $400,000” says Cyndy Thomas, National Director of Tampa based COMFORCE HIM Coding Services. Coding medical charts for maximum reimbursement from private insurers and Medicare/Medicaid requires speed and absolute accuracy. However, the shortage of credentialed medical coders and the acceleration of demand and compliance requirements has created a crisis for local hospitals.
Coding mistakes are costly and the shortage of credentialed coders is serious. So, COMFORCE Him Coding Services is extending its national travel coding division to include recruiting services for local Tampa hospitals. “Our new service has been welcomed by local institutions. In addition, we are able to offer employment to local coders who are unable to accept our travel positions because of family or other commitments. It’s a win-win solution to the local coding crunch which we intend to expand to our national network of COMFORCE offices” says Ms Thomas.
