About Us – Coding Network, LLC
Our Vision and Mission
The Coding Network, L.L.C. was established in 1995 on the concept that accurate professional and facility coding is mission-critical in today’s healthcare providers’ revenue cycle. Accurate coding is pivotal to improving reimbursement and is an essential component of compliance. The company’s founders and owners, Mark Babst and Neal Green, have a combined 70+ years of experience in the medical coding and billing environment. After very successful careers in academic and private medical practice and hospital management experience and 19 years of successfully providing coding and billing services to prestigious university medical centers via their prior company, they created The Coding Network to respond to the expanding demand for the accurate subspecialty coding required by Federal and state compliance regulations.
Our vision when creating The Coding Network was to be the most respected medical coding company in the nation. With so many of our competitors off-shoring their coding to third-world countries, that vision has expanded to be the best in the world.
Our talented coders and their work is pivotal for the accurate reimbursement of the patient-care services provided by our physician-clients. Each member of The Coding Network’s team has the responsibility to put our clients’ interests first, to provide accuracy in coding, superior service, and to always act with the highest level of personal and professional integrity.
We know we operate in a world of choice. Clients demand more of a company and have the power to choose and change; we further empower this by not requiring any minimums or exclusive arrangements. This gives our physician-clients total control and keeps us laser-focused on accuracy.
Consistent delivery of coding accuracy in a timely manner is crucial to earning and keeping our physician-clients’ respect and business. The Coding Network has the skills and experience to help our physician and hospital clients meet the challenges of an increasingly complex reporting-and-reimbursement environment. Key to turning this vision into reality is putting the client at the center of our solar system. By effectively aligning people, skills, processes, finance, and an entire organization to focus on the client, we can grow to understand their needs at a molecular level, offer greater value, and ultimately exceed expectations at every touchpoint.
