3 Elements for Changing Care Models

The Mayo Clinic’s Center for Innovation will be holding its 2014 Transform Symposium Sept. 7-9. The event offers both in-person and online opportunities to participate.

Virtual care will be a primary focus during the conference, so we recently caught up with Dr. David J. Cook, professor of anesthesiology at Mayo Clinic who also has an appointment in the engineering section for the Center of the Science of Healthcare Delivery.

Dr. Cook built MC Health Connection, a cloud-based architecture designed to alter care models and improve the patient experience. Using a tablet, patients, family members and physicians can track their progress with recovery following surgery.

Watch the above clip to hear his thoughts on the future of virtual care, and be sure to register for the event.
