Four Mayo Clinic investigators have received grants from the Naober Foundation – seed money to research projects on connected care delivery models.
“Esophagostomy Patient Remote Monitoring and Management System”
Dr. Blackmon’s team will study the effect of a digital patient remote monitoring and management system on patients on emergency department visits within six months after an esophagostomy.
“Accessing the Usability and Workflow Impact of a Mobile-Based Breast Cancer Survivorship Care Plan in the Oncology Practice”
Dr. Stan and her team will study the use of an interactive care plan in the long-term management of breast cancer survivors.
“Telemedicine Care for Bariatric Patients: What Do Patients Prefer?”
A barrier to expanding the bariatric surgery patient population at Mayo Clinic is the frequent need for in-person follow-up care, which has been associated with better long-term outcomes. Dr. Sada and her team will compare video telemedicine post follow-ups to standard postoperative visits through a randomized clinical trial that will assess patient satisfaction and perception of telemedicine visits as well as the costs of both.
“Synchronous, Remote Obstetrics Services for Rural Health Facilities: Implementation and Outcomes in Mayo Clinic Health System”
Dr. Theiler and her team will study the use of real-time, remote obstetrics video telemedicine services at Mayo Clinic Health System community hospitals and the impact on the outcomes of maternal emergencies and staff safety attitudes at the hospitals.
