Mayo Clinic and Southeast Minnesota Beacon Community Collaborators will Showcase Work at Conference

Posted on February 22nd, 2012 by

Medical records are an invaluable tool in treating patients. When a caregiver has ample information regarding a person’s medical history, treatments are more effective and efficient. Unfortunately, few people have complete medical records — due, in large part, to a lack of any universal repository tools for keeping those records. Mayo Clinic, along with its partners in a program called the Southeast Minnesota Beacon Community, is working on solutions to this problem. They are showcasing their work through demonstrations at the 12th annual Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society Conference & Exhibition (HiMSS), from Feb. 20 to 24 in Las Vegas.
