The kiosks offer Mayo Clinic Health Connection — a new telemedicine delivery system through the HealthSpot platform, which combines cloud-based software and a private walk-in kiosk that offers medical treatment at the workplace.

Mayo Clinic has been a leader in the field of stroke telemedicine, which uses audiovisual technology to connect patients in rural areas with stroke specialists at hub hospitals. Starting at Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Ariz., stroke telemedicine subsequently expanded to Mayo’s campus in Jacksonville, Fla. Now, Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., is a stroke telemedicine hub serving 18 hospitals in the Mayo Clinic Health System in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

“We’re expanding the Mayo Clinic Model of Care for stroke telemedicine to the Upper Midwest. The goal is to bring Mayo Clinic stroke expertise to each of the sites in our health system, through collaboration with physicians and other providers at those sites, and then expand later this year to non-Mayo sites as well,” says Robert D. Brown Jr., M.D., a neurologist at Mayo in Minnesota.
