Modeling Optimal Cost Distribution for Telestroke Services in Germany
One of the growing trends for healthcare is the rate of innovation. Telestroke, a cost- effective, new innovation, is one of those innovations but its implementation in Germany is hampered due to a lack of long-term financial support. Currently, the parties involved in the investment are not the parties that save money in the aftercare process. Using a Stackelberg model, this paper introduces an alternative model for determining how much each participant contributes to the cost of implementing the innovation using a value-based, rather than cost-based, decision- making process. We conclude with discussion regarding how to generalize the model to other innovations.
