Mayo Clinic taps Google for analytics, innovation, cloud computing

Mayo Clinic announced a 10-year strategic partnership with Google, which will provide the Rochester, Minn.-based health system with technological support to advance digital healthcare innovation.

Through the partnership, Mayo Clinic will utilize advanced cloud computing, data analytics and storage, machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies to expand its virtual care, data-driven research and precision health initiatives. These solutions will come from the combination of Mayo Clinic's clinical expertise with Google's IT and data security abilities, Google CEO Sundar Pichai said in a statement.

Gianrico Farrugia, MD, president and CEO of Mayo Clinic, noted that the partnership "will empower us to solve some of the most complex medical problems; better anticipate the needs of people we serve; and meet them when, where and how they need us. We will share our knowledge and expertise globally while caring for people locally and always do it with a human touch."
