Unfortunately, every facility does have those physicians who are not, shall we say, quick on the dictation end. (We have one who I'm still waiting on OP reports from January). We do code them when we get that dictation. If it comes back for timely filing issues, that is documented in the chart. The medical records department does have a delinquency list they work with, I'm not sure how all that works as I don't work in that department. I also know that they call the physicians office regularly to see if they can get these reports taken care of, we (coders) also call regularly to see if we can get a dictation, we have our own lists we work from. We also look at the insurance to make sure of the time filing limits and mention these make in our calls to the physician. It doesn't always help, but we do it.
our delays are 99.5% physician related and not transcription.
