I suppose there is nothing wrong with getting a "head start" on the coding as long as you wait for the op note to finalize your codes before billing the claim. Seems like extra work though. Why do it twice, ya know?
In my office, we have an EMR that links with the billing software. The physician codes their own claims and I review them before the charges are sent out, so this is similar to the scenario you are presenting. Ideal? no. Workable? yes.
