Casemix-based funding has consequently been an important driver of change in clinical coding and has raised the profile of Health Information Managers and Clinical Coders whilst simultaneously imposing a very high degree of accountability for coding accuracy, and for increased levels of coder productivity and efficiency (Robinson & Shepheard 2003).
Ipera Pixel Xtream is a software batch transcoder that costs $3,995, which puts it in the same general price range as Rhozet Carbon Coder. Though Pixel Xtream is serviceable, with many high points in the review, Carbon Coder supports more relevant output formats (including VP6), has more usable presets, encodes faster, and produces quality similar to or better than Pixel Xtream.
