Does anyone have comments on the pros v cons of hiring & managing the remote coder? Currently seeking a (probable) FT radiology coder - open to the possibility of making this a remote position but curious to know if other smaller practices have ventured into this territory successfully (by 'smaller' I mean specialty-specific, single-company employers). Specifically questioning challenges such as working in different time zones, providing equipment v requiring the employee to provde, providing remote training & coaching, and IT issues such as providing access to applications/programs maintained on local servers (as opposed to internet-based). Appreciate any feedback or links to articles or publications that discuss this topic. Thanks!
