    what was the criteria on the mistakes ?. Can you tell me what the check points are on the quality. What is the mistakes on a 95% quality review. I work at a Radiology billing service and missing 1 out of 10 mistakes is a 90% quality review. Do they mark you off on diagnosis,cpt,modifiers and auditing.

    Default E & M Coding for Internal Medicine and Family Practice

    I was a bit confused with all the different productivity standards members posted. Of course standards would vary depending upon how each coder came up with their CPT's and ICD-9's. Our coders abstract from the providers clinic notes. We have just switched to EMR and some providers are using templates and some are dictating and some are doing a little of both. I think 12-20 completed encounter forms per hour is reasonable for E & M codes.
    Some of the standards that were mentioned made me wonder if some of the coders were simply just using the codes the providers wrote down and not actually abstracting the encounter's themselves.

    Default Radiology production...

    Hi All,

    I am from INDIA, I used to code around 500-600 radiology charts per day. When I mean charts it includes the cpt/cpt's, Dx/Dx's, Modifier/Modifier's. And add to this I would be auditing the files done by my team members.It is Hard But I love my job and I do it pretty easily.

    I am the manager of the coding unit at a multi-specialty clinic. We code hospital/ASC claims for over 200 providers - surgery, readings, E/M. Currently, I have 3 certified supervisors, 7 certified coders, and 10 noncertified coders. The coders are expected to put out at least 425 claims a month within an 8 hour, 5 day work week. This may seem low; however, we (not the physicians) are coding from documentation.

    We estimate approx 10 -13 min per encounter for qual esp coder for ultimate result

    We are required to code 150 charts a day (EMR) and then enter all charges into the billing system. Most companies that hire you to work from home require 200 - 225 a day (8 hours), with a 90% accuracy rate, and they check it monthly ..... I think that 200 is a little over the top, we are coding the physician side of ER, but that is what we have set for now.

    I code 150 ER visits per day (eight hour shift)

    I was coding 175 cases of Surgical Pathology per day. For cytopathology 300 charts can be coded per day.

    For E/M office visits, our target is 250-300 per day.
