Building and Sharing the Evidence Base

Health care delivery research conducted by the Florida team of the Mayo Clinic Robert D. and Patricia E. Kern Center for the Science of Health Care Delivery has impacted clinical practice in a number of ways across Mayo Clinic. However, stopping there is not an option.

The needs of the patient drive research at Mayo Clinic. Rather than conducting research simply to gain more knowledge, Mayo Clinic collaborative research teams unravel and solve complex research questions with another end goal. They strive to quickly bring proven diagnostics, therapeutics and improved care delivery models to patients. This includes the critical step of sharing this knowledge with the current and next generations of doctors and scientists.

Florida health care delivery researchers spread the word regarding advances in health care delivery through publications, presentations and external collaborations. Below are some recent accomplishments:

  • Invited keynote presentation: "Pivoting from volume to value," American Medical Group Association 2016 regional-targeted meeting in North Carolina and Texas
  • Invited keynote presentation: "Conducting health services research in clinical practice: Experiences from the Center for the Science of Healthcare Delivery at Mayo Clinic Florida," 40th anniversary celebration for the Arnold School of Public Health, University of South Carolina, Columbia, South Carolina
  • Ongoing international academic and medical research collaboration with the Karolinksa Institute, Stockholm
  • Collaborations with the High Value Healthcare Collaborative
  • Multiple presentations during the International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurement 2016 annual conference, London
