Heartland and by its breast cancer care has seen a quick return on its membership in the Mayo Care Clinic Network since announcing the partnership in May. "This allows us to have one more opportunity to increase our knowledge in managing breast cancer," says Dr. Robert C. Johnson, who specializes in oncology and radiation at Heartland Health. Heartland utilizes the network's E-Consult system to complement its care of all cancer patients, including those diagnosed with breast cancer. The process, Dr. Johnson says, allows Heartland's specialists to request additional evaluation by the Mayo Clinic's physician experts when unique issues call for further analysis.
