Health system business development
To get to a specific place or location, you have to know where you want to end up. Business development is no different. You have to have a vision and mission as to where you want your organization to go. Then you have to have a roadmap, or strategic plan, as to how to get to your desired location from where you are starting from. And yet all the planning in the world will not get you to your desired location without proper implementation, project management.
TCGA has the group of Associates that have the knowledge, experience and talent to help your organization determine its focused vision/mission, develop strategies on how to get there, and be able to operationalize the strategic plan. Independently our resumes demonstrate that. Collectively, we are a formidable, synergistic team.

Healthcare Billing in University Athletics
- Do we follow HIPPA or FERPA regulations?
- Under what provider number do we bill?
- Where does the revenue flow once collected?
- Who negotiates contracts with insurance carriers?
- What system do we use to track care, and bill insurance with?
- What guidelines do we use to bill student athletes insurance – when do we bill, for what injury?
- Is the return on investment high enough to justify the resources and change in culture this will cause?
TCGA’s Principle and Partners have experience in this unique environment and in this type of healthcare billing. This experience provides for professional resources and problem solving strengths to work with colleges and universities to answer the above questions, and determine the return on investment and financial feasibility. If the answers meet administration goals and expectations, then TCGA can assist in the creation of a process for the university to walk through the complexities of medical coding/billing, and if desired, assist in implementation through project management. TCGA is not in business to sell a proprietary process, methodology or particular system. We bring our experience, expertise and resources to find the right solution for your organization.
Outsourced Administrative/Executive Leadership
There are times in the life of a company or organization that interim or part-time leadership is needed. There can be many reasons for this:
- An executive leader has left abruptly, and there is a need for interim leadership while the recruiting/search process takes place to fill the position permanently.
- The company or association is growing rapidly and is in need of specific leadership or operational leadership to fill a gap while the company grows to point of being able to hire full time.
- An entrepreneur needs specific leadership skills to balance their own, allowing the company to continue on a growth curve.
- Need for executive talent to lead a specific project, and more cost effective to contract than to hire.
