Stroke Mortality

The stroke mortality measure includes Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) beneficiaries aged 65 or older and assesses the occurrence of death from any cause within 30 days after the date of hospital admission for stroke. CMS began publicly reporting the stroke mortality measure in 2014.

Stroke mortality measure results are updated annually. As part of ongoing measure surveillance, analyses that provide a comprehensive overview of national performance on the measure or investigate select hospital practices that may impact hospital performance are conducted.
