High-Value Care Outcomes of Meningiomas

Neurosurg Clin N Am. 2023 Jul;34(3):493-504. doi: 10.1016/j.nec.2023.02.016. Epub 2023 Apr 5.


High-value health care has become a widely researched topic within neurosurgery. The concept of "high-value" care involves optimizing resource expenditures relative to patient outcomes, and therefore, high-value care research within neurosurgery has involved identifying prognostic factors for outcomes such as hospital length of stay, discharge disposition, monetary charges/costs incurred during hospitalization, and hospital readmission. The following article will discuss the motivation of high-value health-care research for optimizing the surgical treatment of intracranial meningiomas, highlight recent research investigating high-value care outcomes in patients with intracranial meningioma, and explore future avenues for high-value care research in this patient population.

Keywords: High-value care; Meningioma; Neuro-oncology.
