Mayo Clinic partners with kiosk maker in virtual visits pilot
Mayo Clinic is partnering with Columbus, Ohio-based HealthSpot to extend its virtual reach. Mayo plans a pilot, beginning in the middle of October and lasting for a year, using HealthSpot walk-in kiosks for patient visits. Mayo will initially target the employees at its Austin and Albert Lea campuses in Minnesota.
The kiosk features a 32-inch video screen and several medical devices to gather data and uses UV light to sanitize itself.
In the pilot, data gathered during a kiosk visit will be sent to that patient’s electronic health record if the patient is with the Mayo Clinic. If a patient’s primary-care provider is outside the clinic’s network, the patient can send his or her records to a doctor.
