Coding Accuracy Issues in Cardiovascular Procedures Point to Significant Revenue Improvement Opportunities for Hospitals

Accurately coding complex cardiovascular procedures in the cath lab is incredibly difficult, but failing to do so can cost your organization thousands of dollars per case.

ZHealth audited 2,931 cardiovascular cases from 51 hospitals and healthcare systems over three years and found that only 55.1% of cases were coded correctly to the documentation provided. And for Medicare payments alone, under-coded cases had $8,051 average anticipated under-reimbursement per affected case.

In this report, you'll gain insights on:

  • The staggering financial impact of over-coding and under-coding
  • The legal and compliance risks beyond the reimbursement impact
  • And more!
