Acute Emergency Care and Outcomes for Stroke, Myocardial Infarction, and Surgery During the COVID-19 Pandemic in Kaiser Permanente Northern California: Implications for Care Delivery During COVID-19 Recovery Phase and Future Surges

The decreased trend in patients seeking care for acute stroke, acute MI, and acute surgical presentations during the COVID-19 pandemic is concerning for potential long-term morbidity, mortality, rehabilitation costs, and preventable downstream health care utilization. We aim to assess the effects of the shelter-in-place order on acute stroke, AMI, and surgical care and outcomes and downstream consequences on the health care system.
