Mayo Clinic unveils new mobile health service
Mayo Clinic Health System unveiled its new mobile health clinic on June 28th as a way to improve health care access for those in rural communities. The mobile clinic includes two exam rooms and an onsite laboratory bringing health care directly to patients, for in-person care or virtual care via the onsite telehealth equipment. Mayo says the unit will travel to communities across southern Minnesota and provide a variety of services including vaccinations, pediatrics, preventative services and more along with a variety of virtual options. The mobile health clinic will also be offering high-speed internet connections so that patients can come and access their patient online service account, do express care online, and even conduct their own video visits with their provider or other providers within the Mayo Health System. Additionally, the mobile clinic will add more stops when need is identified in rural communities.
