This is a most difficult question to answer. It depends on what type of records you are coding. Are they dictationed, ERM, etc. How many pages are your records. Is it a group with good knowledge of what to document and how to document so that you are not wasting time going over parts of the record you do not need to go over, etc, etc, etc.
Some coders can read faster then others. Some have been in the medical field of perhaps nursing and undertand the charts just as if they are standing next to the physician and taking the physicians orders.
Some computer work-stations are user friendly and then others are not. So........
as you can see threre are many things that can vary.
I know of a billing service that requires 230 charts per day. I know of one that requires 200 per day. But I know lots of coders and if you want a good days work from them .....150-175 per day is a good amount of charts without errors.
