Mayo Clinic launches advanced care at home model
Through a new care model, patient at Mayo Clinic with conditions usually maned in a hospital setting, will have the option to transition to a home setting and receive care through virtual and in-person services, announced Mayo Clinic.
Services in the advanced care at home program will include:
- skilled nursing
- laboratory and imaging services
- behavioral health
- rehabilitation services
“As a physician, I have always believed that patients should receive the right care, at the right time, in the right setting to restore wellness rapidly…We’ve learned that patients expect more virtual and remote care than ever. The Mayo Clinic Platform, in collaboration with Medically Home, has assembled the technology and expertise to deliver high quality, acute care in non-traditional settings like the home. Offering patients this new option is part of Mayo Clinic’s Cure. Connect. Transform strategy,” said John Halamka, MD, president, Mayo Clinic Platform, in a statement.
