Did you miss the ICHOM conference 2020? Are you interested to hear about a unique national pathway pilot?

Better quality of life for stroke patients

A unique national stroke patient pathway pilot puts patient at the centre and tries out various incentives to make the pathway better.

The Estonian Health Insurance Fund (EHIF) took a big leap towards value-based healthcare as they started a national stroke patient pathway pilot involving 4 out of 6 hospitals in Estonia providing acute stroke care. How did this project get started? What has been successful so far? And most important, what are the lessons learned?

The recording of the presentation “Measuring Outcomes and Stroke Patient Pathway Pilot in Estonia” by the Estonian Health Insurance Fund’s Rõõt Palmiste and NHG’s Vesa Komssi is now available on the ICHOM & NHG blog.
