Michigan Study Finds Death Rates Aren’t the Best Way to Measure Stroke Care

A study from the University of Michigan Comprehensive Stroke Program and the University of Rochester Medical Center found that using death rates to measure quality of care provided by hospitals to stroke patients may not be the most effective method. The researchers, including Dr. Lewis Morgenstern, professor of epidemiology and director of the stroke program, published their results in the journal Stroke, and presented them at the International Stroke Conference in San Diego.
