How long have you been servicing the Medical Coding Industry?
PDN opened its first office in 1995 and has been growing ever since. We are now a full-service medical coding company providing quality Health Information Services for clients all around the country.

How experienced are your medical coders and do they have all the certifications?
All of us at PDN know there is no substitute for experience. We go to great lengths to ensure each one of our coders is certified by the state, but what we really look for is prior medical experience and above all attention to detail. Medical coders go through stringent training so we like to cultivate that training by giving them the foundation of proper methodology so they will gain confidence and perform their job competently. They also participate in continuing education to stay ahead of all the changes that take place in the medical industry.

How secure is your data network?
Data security is something we take extremely seriously at our remote coding lab and we have invested all our resources into the most advanced e-coding software on the market. In addition to Legacy systems to all new servers we also utilize Citrix for security and monitoring. We also train our staff routinely on the importance of data security as well as the latest security threats. We also screen them thoroughly upon employment with PDN.

We are also are compliant in HIPAA as well as all national regulations including secure government services that meet US Navy requirements.

Where is your remote coding being performed? Will we be able to communicate effectively with medical coders handling our account?
This is a question that is asked quite frequently. The term “outsourcing” is a hot topic these days and can sometimes bring up thoughts of the dreaded overseas call center with scripted language that does not come close to the English language. PDN recognizes when dealing with patients and their medical records, clear and concise communication is vital to a successful partnership. That is why we built two state of the art remote coding labs right here in Chicago to best serve our nationwide network of clients. PDN employs a superior team of medical coders locally and provides continuous training to stay abreast of the constant changes that are occurring in the medical industry today.
