Advancing Patient Care

Putting the Needs of the Patient First
Mayo Clinic’s laboratories view testing as an integrated part of each patient’s episode of care. Our assays and algorithms are jointly developed by Mayo Clinic laboratory experts and Mayo Clinic physicians around each patient’s medical diagnosis and treatment. This algorithmic approach ensures that you receive the right test for the right patient at the right time.

Sharing our Knowledge
For more than 150 years, Mayo Clinic has collaborated with health care organizations around the world to advance medical knowledge and support the local delivery of health care services. To ensure success in a value-based payment environment, our laboratory physicians and scientists regularly interact with their clinical peers to ensure that the right tests are developed, validated, and implemented for the clinical practice.

To build on this legacy, Mayo Clinic subject-matter experts provide on-site guidance, consultative services, on-demand educational opportunities, and utilization management tools. These tools will enable your organization to continually evolve with the changes of health care reform.

Connecting You with World-Class Support

Partnering to Achieve Your Operational and Strategic Goals

Every Mayo Clinic Laboratories customer is served by a dedicated team of professionals comprised of a regional manager, regional service representative, clinical specialty representatives, and a laboratory technologist resource coordinator.

Achieving Operational Excellence
Efficient transportation and processing of specimens equate to faster results. Our approach to operations focuses on one goal—to produce the best outcomes for patients. Our partners receive personalized support including specimen collection, shipping supplies, and comprehensive shipping instructions. Our integrated courier network ensures that your specimens are delivered to our laboratories quickly and safely.

Strengthening Your Practice

Positioning You as a Center of Excellence
Whenever possible, patients should receive testing within their local communities. We work closely with our laboratory partners to build and sustain outreach activities, provide esoteric and specialty testing, and position your community laboratories as centers of excellence. You will not face competition from Mayo Clinic, but instead, you will partner with us to decrease costs and grow your revenue by performing cost-appropriate tests locally.

Promoting Practice-Based Utilization
Our utilization management support is based on the ordering practices of our clinical practice. This approach prevents unnecessary testing and considers implications of the total cost of care. Through comprehensive reporting and algorithms, our clinical specialists will help determine which tests at your laboratory drive growth, they will help eliminate waste, and they will also help you optimize your test ordering.

Achieving Efficiencies with Your Esoteric Testing
By sending esoteric testing to one laboratory, you are able to more effectively monitor utilization among your physicians, which often results in a reduction in operational expenditures. As the global reference laboratory for one of the largest hospitals in the world, we perform more specialty testing at one facility than any other reference laboratory.

Supporting Your Practice through Specialized Testing

Mayo Clinic is the most robust laboratory and pathology practice in the world. This enables us to offer more than 3,000 screening, diagnostic, theranostic, and prognostic testing approaches to support the following clinical specialties:

Cardiology Drug and Toxicology Endocrinology
Gastroenterology Genetics Hematology
Infectious Diseases Neurology Oncology

While your laboratory conducts most of its own inpatient and outpatient testing, the affiliation with Mayo Clinic Laboratories offers you access to more advanced diagnostic and newly developed tests. Instead of outsourcing certain proprietary or specialized tests to many different laboratories, you can now consolidate testing services with Mayo Clinic, saving time and money.

Also, through Mayo Clinic Laboratories, you have direct access to Mayo Clinic physicians and scientists to review patient test orders or interpret results together. This collaboration helps with optimizing your test orders, launching new tests in your health care organization, and applying new analytics technologies.

Expanding Your Test Menu through Global Logistics

For more than 100 years, Mayo Clinic has opened its doors to others by providing care to patients from around the world and by collaborating with other health care organizations to advance medical knowledge and support the local delivery of health care services. We continue that tradition by providing state-of-the-art reference laboratory services to clients around the world.

Our dedicated international support includes world-class logistics and fast turnaround times, easy ordering options to help you get started, multilingual agents who answer your questions, and dedicated support teams to quickly respond to your needs.
