How Mayo Clinic Is Simplifying Prenatal Care for Low-Risk Patients

Harvard Business

To address this problem, in 2011 a group at Mayo Clinic led by the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology launched an initiative to transform prenatal care from this medicalized model to an innovative wellness model. In 2016 it was added as a standard care option at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Pregnancy is not an illness. Rather, it is the ultimate expression of wellness — creating and carrying new life to fruition.

Using AI to Invent New Medical Tests

Harvard Business

AI and machine learning offered us the ability to leverage a massive amount of clinical data compiled at Mayo Clinic over time, which could then be used to generate an automated computer algorithm for the new testing method.

Why The Best Hospitals Are Managed by Doctors

Harvard Business

The Mayo Clinic is America’s best hospital, according to the 2016 US News and World Report (USNWR) ranking. The Mayo website notes that it is physician-led because, “This helps ensure a continued focus on our primary value, the needs of the patient come first.” The course culminates in a team-based innovation project presented to hospital leadership. 61% of the proposed innovation projects have had a positive institutional impact.

Integrating Maintenance of Board Certification and Health Systems’ Quality-Improvement Programs

Harvard Business Review

Most physicians complete quality-improvement projects individually by completing modules provided by the specialty certification boards to collect, analyze, and improve quality on subsets of 25 to 50 patients. To address this shortcoming, Mayo Clinic formed a partnership in 2009 with the American Board of Family Medicine, the American Board of Internal Medicine, and the American Board of Pediatrics to create a pilot program: the Multi-Specialty Portfolio Program for Part IV MOC.

Health Care Providers Can Use Design Thinking to Improve Patient Experiences

Harvard Business

For instance, the department of obstetrics and gynecology at Mayo Clinic used design thinking to reimagine prenatal care. For instance, coaches teach clinical staff how to reject a patient’s request when necessary (for example, when asked for more pain medication) while still projecting a caring message. A hospital administrator recently talked to us about an issue that is all too common for patients: missed medical appointments.

Someone once told me that most PowerPoint presentations have neither power nor a point.

Virtual Health Care Could Save the U.S. Billions Each Year

We believe uses of virtual health hold potential to boost the capacity of primary care doctors—without adding or training more professionals—at a time when the American Association of Medical Colleges projects a shortage of as many as 40,000 primary care physicians (PCPs) in the next decade.

What Health Care Leaders Need to Do to Improve Value for Patients

Dr. Uitti championed the initiative, helping to expand the program across the Mayo enterprise.

How RFID Technology Improves Hospital Care

Harvard Business Review

When redesigning the new and expanded emergency room at the Mayo Clinic’s Saint Marys Hospital in Rochester, Minnesota, Mayo leaders didn’t just want to add more rooms and square feet.

Why Leadership Development Has to Happen on the Job

Getting Rid of “Never Events” in Hospitals

Here are some ways that Mayo Clinic is trying to address these challenges. Like many institutions, Mayo Clinic critically analyzes its care outcomes to look for opportunities to improve.

Liberating Patients from Mechanical Ventilation Sooner

Harvard Business Review

At the Mayo Clinic, we implemented sedation-weaning and ventilator-weaning protocols and a color-coded communications scheme in the ICU in an effort to more quickly identify mechanically ventilated patients who were able to be awakened and breathe on their own. We should note that we did not collect patient outcomes data — this project was designed only to improve our compliance with the SAT and SBT protocols, which have been proven to be beneficial.

An Online Medical Database Is Reducing Doctor Error

Researchers at the Mayo Clinic showed that U.S. The Global Health Delivery (GHD) Project at Harvard University and Wolters Kluwer launched a partnership in 2009 to donate subscriptions to UpToDate to clinicians in resource-limited settings around the world.

The Cure for the Not-for-Profit Crisis

Harvard Business Review

Because these cuts don't distinguish between "good overhead" (used to build and maintain essential capabilities) and "bad overhead" (used on projects or activities unrelated to core purposes), they become a kind of pressure forcing the organization to avoid spending money on itself. The Mayo Foundation, tied closely to the Mayo Clinic, funds and oversees medical health care research with the capabilities needed to make that research most effective.
