Mayo Clinic Care Network
Hancock Health is a member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, a carefully vetted group of independent health systems granted special access to Mayo Clinic’s knowledge, expertise, and resources. We were selected for our commitment to the highest quality patient-centered care.
About Our Partnership
As part of the network, Hancock Health physicians can quickly access Mayo Clinic’s research, diagnostic, and treatment resources. When doctors need to discuss a specific patient’s diagnosis or treatment, they are able to consult directly with Mayo Clinic specialists—at no extra cost to patients.
How was Hancock Health chosen?
Hancock Health is currently one of just four Indiana healthcare providers in the Mayo Clinic Care Network. We were selected for demonstrating a commitment to the highest quality, patient-centered care. We passed Mayo Clinic’s comprehensive evaluation process, which included an in-depth review of our organization, our clinical and business practices, and our quality, safety, and service efforts.
Ask a Mayo Expert
AskMayoExpert is an online medical database offering our providers quick access to disease management guidance, care guidelines, treatment recommendations, and education for a wide variety of conditions. Since 2022, Hancock Health physicians have visited AskMayoExpert 1,228 times to gather information to better care for our East Central Indiana patients.
Get a second opinion in a convenient and beneficial way for the provider and patient. If our physicians feel additional input would benefit a patient, they can request eConsults: secure, confidential electronic requests for advice from Mayo Clinic specialists on specific questions related to patient care. eConsults are ideal when you have a specific question that merits a specialist’s opinion but does not require the specialist to interview or examine the patient. Since 2022, Hancock Health has used 48 eConsults.
Inpatient Telephone eConsults
If a patient is hospitalized and in need of urgent intervention, Inpatient Telephone Consults enable Hancock Health physicians to speak with Mayo Clinic specialists over the phone for on-demand guidance.
These live, interactive video conferences enable Hancock Health’s medical team to virtually view, discuss, and present complex cases with a team of Mayo Clinic specialists, as well as doctors from other Mayo Clinic Care Network member organizations. Since 2022, Hancock Health providers have attended 17 eBoard sessions.
