May I suggest getting an average on each type of procedures or E/M coded in a given day, then subtract the percentage of the work day that is spent on the other duties you described (scrubbing, denials). Say you determine 100 E/M's should be your productivity number in an 8 hour day, and 30% of the day is spent on other duties, with 70% of the day spent entirely on coding, your productivity would then be 70 charts per day.
I have done this in past positions and it worked well.
Good luck in your process.
