You may also know us by the name Unicor Medical, Inc We offer innovative coding tools that make the coding process easier, more efficient, and more accurate. By increasing coding accuracy, our products help increase compliance and optimize reimbursement. UnicorMed was founded by Paul K. Tanaka, M.D., the Vice-President and Medical Director of one of the largest physician groups in the Southeast. In the 1980s Dr. Tanaka became increasingly aware of how complex coding is and how important it is for physicians and hospitals. He began researching the role of coding in reimbursement and the factors that commonly cause confusion and error. He devoted some 35, 000 hours to developing and refining a more efficient ICD-9 format, as is seen now in the Easy Coder books and Alpha II software programs. In 1990, Dr. Tanaka founded UnicorMed and brought together an expert coding team which produces and updates current products and works to develop new products. In fact, one-third of the members of our entire staff are certified coders. Moreover, UnicorMed is staffed from top to bottom with physicians, nurses, coders, office managers, compliance experts, record administrators, coding instructors, and others with years of healthcare and coding experience.
