To control the irrational increase of medical costs, and improve the rational use of health resources. 2,218 medical records of cerebral infraction patients between 2007 and 2008 was collected from a tertiary hospital in Tangshan city, and univariate and multiple linear regression analysis was conducted for risk factors of hospital charges. The average hospital cost of cerebral patients was 8,371.22 yuan, univariate analysis results show that: gender, rescue, payment methods, hospital stay and treatment outcomes were important factors that has impact on hospital cost.
