HEXAGON offers a clinical trial that is open for enrollment to participants who want to volunteer for a research study on hospital discharge. The study is exploring whether having a video visit with an advanced practice provider after being discharged from the hospital will increase patients' level of adherence to their doctors' recommendations for post-discharge care.
Part of Mayo Clinic's commitment to its patients involves conducting medical research that can help people live longer, healthier lives. Clinical trials are research studies that involve volunteer participants. These studies help physician-scientists better understand, diagnose, treat and prevent diseases and conditions.
Mayo Clinic also has thousands of other active clinical trials and research studies, and it coordinates national and international clinical trials with other medical institutions from around the world.
