Nuance Cardiovascular CAPD, powered by ZHealth, improves interventional cardiology case reporting speed and accuracy with a single documentation‑to‑coding system that enables physicians to create fully‑specified reports completed with codes generated automatically.
A recent study of 51 U.S. hospital systems revealed 45 percent of interventional cardiovascular cases were coded incorrectly, and each under‑coded case averaged $8,000 in missed reimbursement. Learn where opportunities exist.
Discover how Nuance Cardiovascular CAPD improves the documentation‑to‑coding process and automates coding with near 100% accuracy.
Cardiac catheterization lab procedures are among the most complex areas of the hospital to accurately document, code, and bill. Variations in clinical presentations, methods, communication, and documentation styles affect the downstream workflow and coding, and even the most advanced hospitals struggle to capture the right information and revenue.

Nuance Cardiovascular CAPD helps hospitals and providers recognize the full value of every interventional cardiology procedure. By consolidating multiple steps into a single documentation‑to‑coding system, physicians create fully-specified reports with codes generated automatically.
In a single solution, Nuance Cardiovascular CAPD marries powerful user interfaces to a state‑of‑the‑art coding engine, harnessing ZHealth’s unique insights to improve coding accuracy resulting in a streamlined process.
With near-100% coding accuracy, the patented algorithm is built on ZHealth’s industry-leading expertise in interventional coding:
nearly two decades focused on complex coding
hospital coding references used nationwide
cases reviewed for the country’s leading hospitals
