"I can see this exercise is a means of demonstrating at least some of the performance criteria, but it’s a very small seemingly diverse sample, so I hope the data sampling criteria covers some basic stats principles – wondering if there was a specific purpose to the 5 basic and 10 mod complex (would expect to be complete in about 2-3 days) and 5 highly complex (which could take 5-10 days to do) sample or whether the student / hospital would get more from a larger sample of basic and mod complex? ‘Industry accepted timeframes’ has been referenced a few times - wondering where this has come from? I wasn’t aware of any specifically (there are a lot of variables) but also do not recommend expecting a student to come close to them because the student is beginner level and reaching proficiency is likely to take some time and it would be likely that established auditors would have a higher output on average (but coding highly complex charts is often quite variable in itself) "

"Agree enrollment should not be accepted without 3-4 years hospital complex coding experience."

"More information required as to how this unit might be assessed? Likely to be many differences amongst experienced Coders purely due to missing info due to volume/writing and because they are complex episodes there are lots of ways of seeing events. I would think right DRG, procedures under GA, material COF 1 codes and flags would be important."
