Ingenix, a health information company, has released its fourth annual report on the "Top 200 Coding Hospitals in the U.S."

According to Ingenix (Eden Prairie, Minn.), the report ranks hospitals by the completeness and accuracy of their medical coding practices used to bill Medicare for inpatient medical services.

To compile the Top 200 report and determine the rankings, Ingenix used its solution to analyze the recently released 2006 Medicare Provider Analysis and Review (MedPAR) file, says the company.

According to the report, the four categories and the top-ranking hospital in each category are:

· Rural, Non-Teaching: Springfield Hospital, Springfield, Vt.

· Urban, Non-Teaching: Kaiser Foundation Hospital, Fresno, Calif.

· Minor Teaching: Kaiser Foundation Hospital, Panorama, Calif.

· Major Teaching: John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital, Chicago, Ill.
