When de-identified clinical data is 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, med device companies, and academic medical centers to enable better ways to diagnose, treat, and even prevent disease. In this program, clinical data is 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.

Program details

With a globally connected data network, the possibilities are endless. Linking de-identified, clinical data will create a more efficient system for diagnosis and treatment. We are enabling clinicians to deliver better patient care by learning from the data of past patients to guide the care journeys of patients in the future. Geographically and ethnically diverse data will help create more tailored medicine, health care products, services, and solutions. That’s not all, large amounts of data will provide scientists a wealth of information for research, including for rare, serious, and complex diseases.

Privacy and security

Mayo Clinic Platform leads the charge in data privacy and security. We neither own nor want to own the data of our partners. As a result, de-identified clinical data from each partner in Mayo Clinic Platform_Connect never leaves the partner’s local environment, ensuring data is safe and secure.

Mayo Clinic Platform’s commitment to privacy means that not only do our partners have control over their de-identified clinical data, but each patient does, too. Every patient can consent to have their de-identified data integrated and at any time decide to have their data excluded. No other data integration program grants this level of control and peace of mind.
