Mayo Clinic Health Care has announced a new online service, Mayo Clinic Nurse Health, that will offer free consultations with doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals in an effort to improve the healthcare experience for patients.
The new service, called Mayo Clinic Nurses Health Care, will provide doctors, nurse practitioners and other professionals in the U.S. with access to the Mayo Clinic’s online network of health professionals.
“Nurses have long provided the best care in the hospital, but many are not familiar with the many benefits that nurse practitioners provide,” said Dr. Julie J. Mowbray, medical director of Mayo Clinic Medical Center and a member of the team that developed the new online resource.
“As part of our mission to improve health care access, we are introducing Mayo Clinic nurses to a wide range of health care professionals through a network of experts, trained to provide high-quality, accessible, collaborative care.”
The online service will also provide information on the Mayo Clinics network of healthcare professionals, including patient access to care, treatment plans and more.
“We are excited to offer the Mayo Nurse Health service to all our nurses in the United States, including the United Kingdom and Australia,” said Jill D. Smith, medical vice president for health care for Mayo Clinic.
“We believe this service will help our nurse practitioners connect with our health care team to learn more about our patients, provide valuable clinical insights, and develop a better relationship with their patients,” said Mowbry.
“This service will be of benefit to all healthcare professionals who work in Mayo Clinic health care, whether they are new to the practice, or have years of experience.
Our goal is to make our healthcare workforce a more diverse and inclusive workforce.”
