Mayo Clinic’s Medical Records Database Growing

By Logan Lafferty

Since 1966, Mayo has collected as many records as possible from Olmsted County and used them to generate important studies that help save lives…Jennifer St. Sauver, scientific manager of the project, says having access to a large and growing pool of medical records gives researchers many more study options. "The great thing about the Rochester Epidemiology Project is that it's not confined just to one particular disease area or one particular condition," she said. "Instead, since it's just capturing all of the health care received by this local population, you can do studies of virtually any condition you can think of."
