The control of health expenditure has become one of the main axes of health policy.

Cost studies are an indispensable tool for determining the economic impact of disease and for assigning the material and human resources required for the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of patients with different diseases. Cost studies in stroke are necessary due to the increasing incidence of this disease which represents a significant cause of death and invalidity in adults and produces important hospital and social spending, and for which patients must be treated in specialized units (stroke units).

The principal cost-determining factors in most studies are those generated by hospital admission (principally hospital stay). Other cost-determining factors include severity, stroke subtype or the fate of patients on discharge.

Future health policies aimed at optimizing economic resources must be directed towards reducing hospital stay and minimizing patient disability.
