    I code in radiology and have for the past 10+ years. My range is between 200 and 400 studies per day. But in addition to coding I also have transcription, billing, billing inquiries, receptionist and administrative assistant to 12 doctors. My day is pretty busy. I am lucky to get 250 in on a day when I am typing or making up the schedules.

    Sounds to me like a pretty busy day too...

    I think it's nice to get other duties besides coding too, you get a variety... so to speak, although I would like to be doing more coding I don't think I could sit and do just coding all day. I guess it's because of where I am coming from to.

    Have a good week,

    I don't understand how this is possible... It takes me all day to code anywhere between 50-75 surgeries from begining to end. Could it be because the length of the reports, or the speciality? I am coding Orthopedic Surgeries, and the reports are most often close to 2 full pages. Should I be worried that I am not up to speed?

    I'd like to clarify the numbers that have been mentioned in this thread. When the coding is strictly operative reports, what are the expected production amounts?
    I think this is a GREAT use of this community! This is a way we can use real-life examples of what other coders are doing with the same type of work.

    Thanks in advance!

    Our procedure coders are required 6/hour and our E/M coders are required 20 per hour.

    Question for dabroussard. Do you code surgical cases from the op note or E/M visits.

    I don't see anyone coding over 20 cases an hour if coding strictly from the operative reports.

    I agree with you. I only average the same as you and I have been coding general surgery for 15 years.

    These are my production standards for the facility I code at. 15 minutes for inpatient chart, 6 mintues for short stay, ambulatory surgery, 2 mintues per er encounter, 1 mintue per lab or xray encouter.

    My questions are: Will you please respond with the productvity standard (number of encounters that you are required to code - either by the hour, or 8 hour workday) for your clinic or facility? Also, what percentage of coding accuracy are you required to maintain?

    Thanks in advance!
