MDH launches framework to address asthma in Minnesota

Kaleida Health updates visitor guidelines for non-COVID patients

The 10-year plan will focus on closing health equity gaps related to asthma and reducing the burden of uncontrolled asthma, such as hospitalizations, emergency department visits, missed days of work or school and preventable health care costs. “Working through collaborative partnerships across the state, we can achieve these goals and improve the health and quality of life for Minnesotans with asthma,” said Minnesota Commissioner of Health Jan Malcolm.

The Minnesota Department of Health has released a 10-year strategic framework to improve the health care and quality of life for more than 422,700 Minnesotans who have asthma.

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease of the lungs and one of the most common lifelong health conditions in Minnesota. Genetics and the environment in which Minnesotans live, work, and play both contribute to the development of asthma and an individual’s ability to keep their asthma under control. While there is no cure for asthma, people who have asthma can live normal, healthy lives with proper treatment. In 2019, one in 20 Minnesota children (5.1%) and one in 12 (8.3%) Minnesota adults reported that they currently had asthma. This compares with 7.5% of children and 9.7% of adults nationwide.

Asthma in Minnesota: A Strategic Framework for Improving the Care and Quality of Life of Minnesotans with Asthma 2021-2030 focuses on seven goals, including advocating and building support for people with asthma; building statewide partnerships with health systems, local public health, schools, businesses, and others; collecting and analyzing trend data related to asthma; eliminating asthma health disparities; reducing environmental factors that trigger asthma episodes; increasing the number of people who have the information, skills, and tools to manage their asthma successfully; and developing and piloting new ways and policies to improve asthma management. The plan complements and shares many of the goals and strategies endorsed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Asthma Control Program.
