Facility Auditing


Cape Coral, FL
Best answers
Our company has recently begun auditing outpatient hospital facility charges, and we are trying to get a handle on how labor intensive this is in comparison to outpatient pro-fee audits. On the pro-fee side, our reviewers typically audit anywhere from 7-10 charts per hour. On the facility side, the numbers are all over the place.

I realize that there are many intangibles which fall into play, but can anyone provide any ball park numbers on what the norm should be?
