Stroke is the fifth-highest cause of death and the primary cause of disability in the United States. Stroke kills about 140,000 Americans every year—that’s 1 out of every 20 deaths. Stroke costs the United States an estimated $34 billion each year. This total includes the cost of health care services, medicines to treat stroke, and missed days of work.
Even minor improvements in stroke care can increase economic savings from the long-term care most often required of stroke patients. Differences in best practices via clinical studies may take time to circulate and later, be deployed; however, stroke is an exciting arena. And, now with the advent of value-based care, the stroke patient experience has become pivotal. Value is measured by achieving successful outcomes and the role of clinical data analytics plays in this scenario is growing every day.
This is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Healthcare consulting for stroke can manage facilitated management agreements of co-management agreements. These agreement foster physician engagement and physician alignment to enhance care and reduce costs. The opportunities for improving care and financial performance are vast, but healthcare organizations won’t benefit if they don’t know what to ask.
