National Averages for Pediatrics

  • 1.  National Averages for Pediatrics

    All -

    I have been tasked with doing a review of our pediatric practices codes and putting together a presentation that compares their coding practices against the national average.  I've done this for other clinics and used MGMA statistics or something similar.  However, most of these organizations use Medicare data.  Since most pediatric patients do not have Medicare, this is not a good comparison.  Does anyone have a solution to this issue?  What data would give me a good idea of national averages.

    Thank you in advance?
