Outpatient CDI Productivity

Does anyone have a defined standard, such as what exists for inpatient CDI, on productivity.  This being defined as the number of records a CDI can review each day.  I have a ballpark guess of 20-50 depending on level of experience but am curious if anyone has something more concrete.

Thank you.

    While the inpatient standard is around 16-24, I have not yet found a definitive standard for outpatient.  I think it would vary depending on the focus of the program, the settings included, and the experience level of the CDI.
