Productivity in IVR coding?

  1. Default Productivity in IVR coding?
    Medical Coding Books
    Hi all,


    Many of us are involved In IR coding, So I had a thought of asking this question.

    1. How many reports can be coded per day.

    2 Total productivity including vascular and non-vascular.

    3. Rate your performance based on your productivity per day.


    Hope I will get many answers

    I don't keep track of my vascular vs non vascular...too busy just trying to get them coded!!

    The number of reports per day really depends on the quantity and types of IR procedures your practice performs. Some practices, for example, don't have neuro-radiologists and those can be especially narly reports to code. As a Coding Supervisor, I also take into consideration the experience a coder has. It's a continuous learning experience but newer coders have much more to learn as they gain experience. I've seen productivity discussed on the RBMA forum but I really don't pay much attention to numbers without information as to type and quantity of reports.

    Other considerations are whether the coder is also entering the charges, whether they're abstract coding or using a charge sheet from the physician, what format they receive their reports in and any other associated duties they may have.

    Hi Ela,

    I can do around 125 to 150 reports per day in which nearly 15 to 180 reports per hour.

    If the reports are really complicated it takes time , in that situation I can code 5-10 reports per hour.

    For me it depends on how complex the note is. Also, most of my cases are vascular with the exception of some G tubes or T Tubes or Abscess drains.
    For those, I could do 10-15 per hour (depending on complexity)fairly easily.

    For vascular or neuro, an average of 10 per hour + or - 2/3.

    I don't really know how to rate my performance per day but I would say at least average to slightly above.
