  • eConsults: providers may contact Mayo Clinic specialists for second opinions on specific patient cases when they believe additional input will benefit their patients.

  • Healthcare consulting: access to Mayo's experience, knowledge and subspecialty expertise to achieve clinical, operational and business goals.

"This collaboration will provide our medical staff with access to the tools and services of the Mayo Clinic, enabling them to share medical knowledge and collaborate in ways that benefit our patients," says Dan Breece, D.O., vice president, Physician Services and chief medical officer, Memorial Health System.
