Reducing Post-CEA Hospital Stays Saves Big

A small, medium, and large piggy bank filled with progressively more coins.

The BMC2 VS goal, "Less than 8% of asymptomatic carotid endarterectomy patients NOT discharged by postoperative day 2", results in big cost savings for the healthcare system.  In 2017, the collaborative average was 9.8%, and by 2020Q3 was 4.5%, a 54% improvement. Based on 1400 discharges, we estimate an annual reduction of 209 inpatient days per year. This translates to an annual cost savings of $480,000. Thanks for your hard work on this goal!
