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 Acute Stroke System Council
The Minnesota Department of Health and the American Heart Association have partnered to convene the Minnesota Acute Stroke System Council, a stakeholder planning group, to develop an acute stroke system for Minnesota. The charge for this group will be to:

  • Adopt standard protocols for emergency medical services to assess and triage stroke patients.
  • Identify hospitals that can treat stroke patients and meet criteria to participate in the system.
  • Create the parameters for data collection, performance improvement, and system coordination and monitoring.

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.
