Strategies 2.1.3:
Develop and implement a statewide acute stroke system.

Strategy from the 2011-2020 Minnesota Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Plan

Minnesota Stroke System
The Minnesota Stroke System is a statewide system of care that the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) is implementing in order to ensure that all people in the state have access to high quality acute stroke care. The first component of the system is the official designation of hospitals by MDH according to their level of stroke treatment capacity. Designation is voluntary. The stroke hospital designation process began in March 2014, with the first hospitals to be designated effective April 1.

Minnesota Stroke Registry

The Minnesota Stroke Registry program is part of a national effort to reduce the incidence of death and disability caused by stroke. This national effort is led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention through the Paul Coverdell National Acute Stroke Registry.

The Minnesota Stroke Registry assesses the use of best practice guidelines for acute stroke treatment by conducting real-time data collection on stroke treatment with Minnesota hospitals. Using these data, hospitals are able to measure and improve the quality of patient care.
