Projects – Minnesota Stroke Registry

We operate the statewide registry of stroke patient quality of care data, capturing nearly all stroke patient visits in the state. This data helps hospitals identify areas for improvement and demonstrate their progress in stroke care. We capture issues we need to provide more education on and where resources are needed to help improve care.

The Minnesota Department of Health encourages voluntary participation by hospitals in the Minnesota Stroke Registry Program.

Participating Hospitals

63 hospitals participate in the Minnesota Stroke Registry Program. (08/2015)

Benefits of Participation

Hospitals in the Minnesota Stroke Registry Program consistently improve their care after they join the program. We've seen that performance on core measures and quality indicators improves after just one year, and continues to improve after each year of participation.


To participate in the registry, email Please note that hospitals can participate in the American Heart Association’s Get With The Guidelines–Stroke® program to meet requirements for the Minnesota Stroke Registry or The Minnesota Statewide Quality Reporting and Measurement System (SQRMS) reporting.
