– Today, Mayo Clinic and Verily, an Alphabet company announced a strategic two-year collaboration to develop clinical decision support solutions. This modular, evidence-based decision support solution, will provide contextualized and validated knowledge on disease management, care guidelines, and treatment to help clinicians make decisions.
– The clinical decision support tool will be developed based on a broad range of health-relevant data sources, including Mayo-vetted clinical knowledge and de-identified EHR data. The tool will use open standards to enable integration with multiple commercial electronic health records. As part of the strategic partnership, the solution will be rolled out at Mayo Clinic with the opportunity to extend the new solution to Verily’s health system partners and customers.
Mayo Clinic, Verily Partnership Details
The partnership will initially focus on a set of cardiovascular and cardiometabolic conditions, with the aim to help guide clinicians toward the highest-quality care. Mayo Clinic will provide Verily with curated clinical content rooted in its multidisciplinary and multispecialty practice. Verily will apply advanced clinical analytics and user-centered design to deliver care insights that are integrated into the health care provider workflow.
“The exponential growth in medical discovery and knowledge has reached the point where it is almost impossible for caregivers to keep up with the latest advances. This tool will make Mayo Clinic’s deep expertise available to care teams so that they can have concise, relevant and applicable answers to clinical questions, tailored to specific needs of each patient,” says Bradley Leibovich, M.D., medical director of Mayo Clinic’s Center for Digital Health. “We hope it can be used as a GPS for patient care.”
