Center for Innovation sneak peek

ROCHESTER, MN (FOX 47) -- With the cost of healthcare rising and our population aging, Mayo Clinic plans to implement new ways to deliver better healthcare through their Center for Innovation.

On Monday, Mayo Clinic Employees got a sneak peek at the center, which opened just last year to transform the way patient care is experienced and delivered.

The Center for Innovation is taking a unique approach to the challenges facing the healthcare system today, by focusing on the needs of the patient.

Matt Maleska, with the Center for Innovation, says, "Often times when you talk about healthcare innovation, it's often approached through the perspective of the provider, perspective of the payer system. What we've really done is changed that around and what is the desirability and what do patients want out of their healthcare system and that's what we're doing."

This Center for Innovation is truly one of a kind - no other medical practice in the world has an innovation center focused on improving the delivery of healthcare.
