Annotation. Improving approaches to the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of stroke is a priority, as this disease is not only a medical but also a social problem. The purpose of the work is to assess the dynamics of the indicators at the time of admission to the hospital, the functional result at the time of discharge and planning of the outpatient stage in stroke patients of hospitals in Vinnytsia for the period 2017–2019. The stroke register is formed on the basis of medical documentation of medical institutions, which are the most typical for this region of Ukraine. Statistical processing of the results was performed using the licensed statistical package “Statistica 5.5” using parametric evaluation methods. Significant differences in the indicators of the effectiveness of the organization of medical care for stroke at the pre-hospital and hospital stage between the two medical institutions of Vinnytsia, as well as in the dynamics of observation time. The positive and negative aspects of medical and diagnostic work of these hospitals are analyzed. A number of factors influencing the success of treatment outcome and comprehensive rehabilitation of stroke patients are analyzed. Modern views on the problem of analysis of clinical data using the method of register and medical statistics are presented.
