Production Analysis Report - Production by Procedure Category

The Production by Procedure Category report shows information for charges posted during the selected time period, broken down by procedure category.

As with many other reports, this report can be run with a variety of filters. For this report, all filters are based on the information listed in the charge window.

  • Filter Providers/Offices: Filters the report based on the provider/office listed in the charge window.


  • Filter Procedures: Filters the report to show only information for the selected procedure code(s).


  • Filter Fee Schedules: Filters the report based on the fee schedule associated with the procedure.


  • Filter Facilities: Filters the report based on the Facility entered in the charge window.


  • Procedure Start Date/End Date: Filters the report based on the entered date range. By default, it will use the Procedure date listed on the charge (see point H for additional information).
  • Show Charge Category: Displays the Category results as assigned by the Procedure Category added to the New Charge menu. Where this checkbox is not checked, the Procedure Category results will be based on the Procedure Category added to the fee within the Fee Schedule from which the charge is pulled.
  • Include $0.00 Charges: If checked, includes charges with a fee amount of 0.00 in the report.
  • Use Posted Date: If checked, causes the Start and End date fields to filter by the posted date rather than the procedure date.
  • Show In Procedure Break Down: Allows you to select whether you will see the procedure code or short description in the "Detail" column of the expanded results.

After you have set your filters, click the Apply button to see your results.
