How does NTAP Benefit You?

Case Study: Single Hospital Center

In a stand alone center with 500 suspected ischemic strokes per year, an estimated 131 cases will qualify for NTAP, receiving up to $1,040 per patient. Hence, resulting in a total projected impact of $136,240.

Case Study: Multi-Center System

In a hub and spoke model with 1,500 suspected ischemic strokes per year, an estimated 394 will qualify for NTAP, receiving up to $1,040 per patient. Hence, resulting in a total projected impact of $409,760.
