Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast: Mayo Clinic Platform to reach patients where they are
Transforming health care and health care delivery are priorities for the Mayo Clinic Platform, according to Dr. John Halamka, president of the Mayo Clinic Platform.
"If we are going to deliver advice, let’s make sure it’s customized to the person, their geography, the time of year, all those other variables," says Dr. Halamka. He adds that the COVID-19 pandemic has revealed how well that can work.
"COVID-19 has taught us, culturally, that it’s actually OK to do things at a distance," says Dr. Halamka. "We’ve been able to do remote infusions of things like remdesivir. We’ve been able to enhance the patient’s experience of getting COVID-19 treatment without them having to leave their homes."

For the safety of our patients, staff and visitors, Mayo Clinic has strict masking policies in place. Anyone shown without a mask was either recorded prior to COVID-19 or recorded in a non-patient care area where social distancing and other safety protocols were followed.
