Mayo Clinic Platform_Connect
When de-identified clinical data are shared securely among health care providers, innovators, and researchers, it increases the possibilities of better care and better patient outcomes. Mayo Clinic Platform_Connect makes better care a reality.
What is Mayo Clinic Platform_Connect?
Mayo Clinic Platform_Connect is a distributed data network program that partners with health systems, payers, medical device companies, and academic medical centers to enable better ways to diagnose, treat, and even prevent disease. In this program, clinical data are connected in a federated, secure architecture to drive innovation in health care.
Each partner that is part of Mayo Clinic Platform_Connect is committed to transforming care with a network of connected data. They bring unmatched depth and breadth of clean, curated, de-identified data related to complex and rare health conditions; a wide range of treatments and therapies; and representation from diverse communities in urban and rural settings.
With a globally connected data network, the possibilities are endless. Mayo Clinic Platform_Connect links de-identified clinical data which will help create a more efficient system for diagnosis and treatment. It enables clinicians to deliver better patient care by learning from the data of past patients to guide the care journeys of patients in the future. Data from geographically and ethnically diverse patient populations will help create more tailored medicine, health care products, services, and solutions. That’s not all—large amounts of data will give scientists a wealth of information for research, including for rare, serious, and complex diseases.
