Each state plan strategy is given an activity level category that considers the following factors:
- The amount of activity (projects, initiatives, policy work, etc.)
- The reach of the activities (local, regional, or statewide reach)
- The impact on decreasing cardiovascular disease risk, morbiditity and mortality
- Scope of the activity
- Quality of the activity (based on best-practice, promising practice)
Activity Level Categories
No/Limited Activity Moderate Activity High Activity

Objective 2.1: Provide consistent, evidence-based, and timely acute care for Minnesotans experiencing: Acute cardiac events (STEMI, SCA) and Stroke
Objective 2.2: Create an informed Minnesota population that recognizes acute signs and symptoms and understands the need for timely, evidence-based emergency response: Stroke and Acute cardiac events
Objective 3.1: Provide disease risk management interventions to prevent secondary cardiovascular and stroke events and progression of disease.
Objective 3.2: Prevent avoidable hospital readmissions within 30 days post-hospitalization for cardiovascular disease and stroke patients.
