6 latest Mayo Clinic health IT moves

From launching a new hospital-at-home program to investing in health technology companies, Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic is using health technology to improve patient care and create breakthrough innovations. 

Here are six of Mayo Clinic's health tech moves as reported by Becker's since April. 

  1. Mayo Clinic launched a program called Monitoring at Charter House, which allows surgical patients to recover in an apartment near the system's flagship hospital. The program allows physicians to arrange for patients, who meet certain criteria, to recover overnight at an apartment rather than in the hospital. The apartments are equipped with remote monitoring technology, and patients can press a button to connect to their care team at any time by phone or video call.

  2. Mayo Clinic and healthcare IT company KLOC Health will create an app to match nurses for immediate, short- and long-term assignments by availability, location, certifications, skill sets and interests.

  3. Mayo Clinic partnered with South Korea-based AI company Vuno to develop AI and machine learning for more precise diagnosis, prognosis and treatment stratification in cancer.

  4. A Mayo Clinic and Janssen-backed venture has received FDA breakthrough designation for its AI-enhanced, ECG-based algorithm screening tool that provides early diagnosis of patients with pulmonary hypertension.

  5. Mayo Clinic has invested a minority stake in India-based Karkinos Healthcare, a tech-based oncology platform. Under the agreement, Mayo Clinic will invest a minority stake in the company and nominate a member to the board of directors of Karkinos.

  6. Mayo Clinic's Hack for Health Innovation event granted three winning healthcare innovations $30,000.
