HIM Consulting Firms Merge

TrustHCS, an HIM, coding, compliance, and revenue cycle consultancy firm for healthcare providers, proudly announces a merger with Legacy Coding, LLC, a boutique clinical coding and auditing firm headquartered in Poncha Springs, Colorado. Together the two companies offer a profusion of talented subject matter experts for coding, auditing, clinical documentation improvement, and revenue cycle integrity across all fifty states. The announcement was made by Torrey Barnhouse, president of TrustHCS.

“With a long-standing reputation for solid relationships and impeccable service, Legacy Coding’s culture, customer focus, and ethics were a perfect fit for TrustHCS,” says Barnhouse.  

“The companies are synergistically on the same path and our union guarantees solid growth precisely when healthcare providers need us most,” says Kelli Fosick, chief operating officer of Legacy Coding.

All Legacy Coding employees will transition to TrustHCS over the coming weeks, each bringing with them AHIMA ICD-10 Trainer Certification and 20 years of HIM experience on average. Legacy’s very talented staff is an excellent addition to TrustHCS’s existing team of coding, CDI and revenue cycle professionals. Fosick will remain involved to assure that Legacy clients and employees experience a smooth changeover.

“Legacy Coding customers can expect to receive the same high level of coding and auditing service quality and integrity from TrustHCS, but with an expanded breadth and depth of services,” concludes Fosick. TrustHCS’s technology expertise was another key decision factor in Legacy Coding’s decision.
