"Volunteering is a chance for me to give back and hopefully make a difference. I am lucky to be able to put my organizational, and technological skills to good use. What I do for TCN affords me a chance to continue to develop new skills and build on existing knowledge while feeling involved with a wonderful, worthwhile cause and hopefully help make an impact."
Jan Scott became a volunteer at Four Seasons in the Human Resources Department in May of 2012 the same year Dottie Love was hired and the two have been working side by side together since. To give you some history, Jan was a staple in the Four Seasons Employee Solutions Department, until she transitioned fully to Teleios Collaborative Network’s (TCN) Credentialing Team in May of 2017. Currently, Jan volunteers with and is a valuable member of the TCN Credentialing Team, where her work positively impacts patient safety through effective provider credentialing and impacts the revenue chain with effectual payer enrollment.
“Jan is an important resource for TCN. She shares her time and talents without any compensation, typically donating over 80 hours per month. Her contribution is highly valued by all those who she has worked with over the last, almost 10 years” says TCN CEO Chris Comeaux. He goes on to say, “Jan pushes the bar of excellence higher for all who work with her.”
Over Jan’s tenure with Four Seasons and now TCN, Jan has always held herself to high standards as well as holding others accountable to those same high standards. She routinely checks, double checks, and sometimes triple checks her work and other’s work to be sure it is complete and accurate. She does not hesitate to ask questions and even point out possible ways that a job could potentially go sideways. Jan is admired by all for her focus on the tedious details. She pays great attention to detail, is organized, makes lists, sets herself a schedule and then works her plan. She is meticulous in all that she does, and that value is greatly appreciated by her fellow team members.
Jan shares “I have always seen my life as a journey with fulfillment. I have been very fortunate to have had a very rewarding and successful career and always appreciated what I have had in life. Once retired from a career in education, I looked forward to my next journey. To this end I have devoted my time to volunteering. This endeavor is very important to me. Volunteering is a chance for me to give back and hopefully make a difference. I am lucky to be able to put my organizational, and technological skills to good use. What I do for TCN affords me a chance to continue to develop new skills and build on existing knowledge while feeling involved with a wonderful, worthwhile cause and hopefully help make an impact. I feel that I am part of a team that helps provide services to those in need. I adhere to the mission and goals that TCN aspire to.”
For Jan, becoming part of TCN has broadened her horizons and afforded her the opportunity of working with so many creative, talented, and caring individuals with like values, vision, and commitment. Jan enjoys her work with TCN, and it shows. “Jan loves to learn and is always asking me and others to teach her new things.” She eagerly accepts new challenges. She is not afraid to take on more responsibility. “I have always valued her opinion and the way she looks at things, which is, frankly, quite different from mine. She is funny and can get me to laugh at just the right moment when I need it. Jan is an amazing lady who is such a giver. She reflects the true meaning of volunteerism which is serving others” shares supervisor Dottie Love.
In closing Jan stated, “I truly look forward to continuing to work with the TCN team and hope that my small contribution helps in the achievement of their goals.”
“I want to thank Jan for always being willing to give of herself. These words cannot fully express all that Jan has done for Four Seasons and for TCN nor can they fully express my gratitude,” says Dottie Love, CPCS, TCN Credentialing Specialist.
