Remote Work process
You have very good questions which need to be asked of the potential employer.
From my experience, I've been paid per chart/Op note and with other employers I have had an hourly wage.
Production standards are usually AHIMA driven standards for the type of coding you will be doing. Some employers expect more or sometimes less.
Your work schedule again needs to be discussed with your employer.
Training--I've done both--but if the position is remote-most companies train you remotely--be adamant about your work training. Get printed screen shots sent to you, if possible, on how to move around in the faciilty's billing system as if you are working a different time zone, late at night or on weekends, you'll have no one to contact to ask a question at the facility.
Pay rate--check out AAPC salary survey's
or AHIMA's salary survey's to give you a ball park figure. Also, your experience counts too when negotiating a salary. Do you already have valid experience working a the hospital's system--if so they don't have to train you for that, etc.
What coding resources are going to be provided to you so that you can do your job? Do they provide the coding books, is there an encoder--do they use CAC software (computer assisted coding software)?
Create a list of questions to ask the potential employer, HR or recruiter--
You are interviewing them as much as they are interviewing you--
Best of Luck
