Does anyone have information on how to conduct a collection of data to create a bell-curve comparison with local same specialty physicians?

Ischaum,
The MGMA (Medical Group Management Association) publishes books titled, "Coding Profile Book." There is one for Primary Care and another one for other Medical Specialties.

I use these books all the time for stats. They provide a wealth of information which include the most used E/M codes, CPT codes, ICD-9 codes and a number of other items for each specialty.

The only drawback is these books are quite expensive and they are not as current. Usually they are 2 years behind because of the collection of the stats. Hope this helps?

I had heard in the past that Medicare will provide an office with a Provider Comparison report. I think there was a fee involved.

Jenny,
How do I do the calculation from the cms website you sited. I found the specialty codes, but how do I get the percentage?

Thanks
