Telestroke networks are increasingly recognized for addressing limited access to on‐​site stroke care specialists and the correspondingly low utilization of approved stroke treatments and protocols. However, little information is available regarding the value proposition for participating hospitals. Although similar to the manner in which on‐​site services are delivered, telestroke sites differ in the distribution of revenue and cost, making it difficult to calculate of return on investment (ROI).

Watch this recorded webinar with Ochsner Health System, which operates one of the nation’s most successful and fastest growing telemedicine networks. The Ochsner telestroke network is designed to maximize mutual program investment by sharing capital and operational costs between the hub and each spoke hospital partner. Our guest speakers from Ochsner will explain how they studied their network, correlating the growth and financial impact of stroke services, with the delivery of stroke interventions and alteration of transfer patterns, to determine the return on investment for hub and spoke hospitals.

Attendee Takeaways:

  • A working model for identifying ROI contributors for hubs and spokes in a telemedicine network
  • A methodology for measuring hub and spoke ROI
  • Actual case study examples from the Ochsner telestroke network that illustrate the concepts
  • Recommendations for reporting ROI results to hub executives and spoke partner hospitals

Who Should Watch:

  • Telemedicine and telestroke program directors, managers and coordinators
  • Hospital and health system financial officers and managers
  • Hospital and health system strategy officers and executives
  • Hospital and health system heads of Neurology and other service lines supported by telemedicine
