Mayo currently has a single integrated hospital practice divided between two hospital licenses and two legal entities. Regulations require separate reporting of quality, financial and operating data to organizations such as the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, The Joint Commission and The Leapfrog Group. "Separate hospital reporting has increasingly resulted in an incomplete and incorrect picture of Mayo Clinic's care," the release said. Merging will make it easier for government and non-government entities to get financial data and for patients to have a more accurate picture of care at Mayo.
