The adjusted costs were $24 566 (95% confidence interval 19 364–29 769) lower for patients who received 75–100% of the relevant processes of care compared with patients receiving 0–24%. All processes of care were associated with potential cost savings, except for early catheterization and early thromboembolism prophylaxis.CONCLUSIONS: Early care in agreement with key guidelines recommendations for the management of patients with stroke may be associated with hospital savings.
