I work from home for a local hospital as a coder. I have an office dedicated solely to my work which is necessary to insure confidentiality of PHI. I have a computer, shredder, printer, my cell phone and my coding references. I log in to the hospitals server and work as I would if I were on site. This can easily work for a physician's office as well IF the records are on EHR. I'm not sure how it would work for paper charts. I find that I am more productive from home because there are no distractions. I would suggest that you set a definite schedule for yourself so your family knows when you are at work and when not. Also, as least for me, this helps me to stay on task.
Hope this helps! Good luck!
