Cost Study Consultation
One-on-one appointments are available at no charge for investigators and study teams seeking guidance about sharing "cost" data with parties external to Mayo Clinic. This includes topics such as:
- Sources of cost data
- Adapting financial results from an existing project, such as a quality improvement initiative, for external use
- Starting a new cost study
- Appropriate usage of patients' insurance coverage
These appointments do not include data analysis. Mayo investigators in need of data analysis services should contact the Department of Health Sciences Research (must be logged in to the Mayo network).
Scheduling a consultation
Individual appointments with a cost study consultant from the Department of Health Sciences Research are available through the Mayo Clinic CTSA.
One-hour consultations are available on Mondays at 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. or by appointment. Schedule an appointment by calling the CTSA Service Center at 507-255-7101.
Consultations take place in the main CTSA offices in the Plummer Building, Third Floor. Consultations for investigators at a Mayo Clinic campus other than Rochester, Minn., can be handled by phone using the same scheduling process.
