History

The company was founded in 1970 by Walter R. Witschey, who was then an IBM computer researcher.[1]

CBS News used the company's services based on the programming language APL to provide analysis for the 1972 Democratic National Convention.[2]

In 1981, the state of Louisiana fined the company three times for failing to fulfill its contract to process Medicaid claims. Witschey said the firm's problems stemmed from a very high pend rate among Louisiana insurance claimants.[3]

In 1983, TCC was sold to the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association. Witschey remained chief executive officer (CEO) until 1984.[1]
