Medicare shortchanges hospitals on strokes,


Medicare may be shortchanging U.S. hospitals for the cost of treating stroke, researchers at the Mayo Clinic find. Dr. Waleed Brinjikji, Dr. Alejandro A. Rabinstein and Dr. Harry J. Cloft of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., used data from the the National Inpatient Sample to evaluate hospitalization costs for patients treated with intravenous thrombolysis for acute ischemic stroke in the United States from 2001 to 2008.
