What can be achieved by redesigning stroke care for a value-based world? Expert review of pharmacoeconomics & outcomes research Tai, W., Kalanithi, L., Milstein, A. 2014: 1-3


Stroke results in significant healthcare costs and decreased quality of life. Thoughtful healthcare delivery redesign can help solve this problem through lower-cost, higher-quality care. The dominant fee-for-service reimbursement system may not incentivize delivery systems to invest in new cost-saving delivery innovations. Furthermore, lack of transparency hinder development of new systems of care. However, emerging payment models, including bundled payments and prospective payment, promote adoption of value-based stroke care methods. Both prevention and treatment of stroke offer opportunities to improve value-for-money via adoption of a package of emerging innovations. In order to encourage such adoption, alignment of incentives is crucial.
