Make Change Possible: Thriving in an Ecosystem for Health

Join us September 14 – 16 at Transform 2016 in Rochester, MN!

Engage with the world’s top thinkers to boldly envision a sustainable future for health.


What We Do

We start with big ideas around people’s needs, frame them as opportunities, define and refine the concept and move fast to validate tangible models that can be scaled.


Design Thinking

The Center for Innovation’s role is to transform the experience and delivery of health and health care with a patient-centered focus. It offers a multidisciplinary team to turn innovative ideas for medical practice into practical solutions that change how patients receive health care — a medical transformation.


What We Do

Today, business evolves at a rapid pace. Innovation is more critical than ever, and health care is no exception. During the past 60 years, there have been significant advances in medicine. There is clearly an opportunity to do more — and Mayo Clinic’s Center for Innovation is doing it.


Connect With Us

Mayo Clinic takes innovation out of the clinic, on the road and into other medical practices and learning environments.

Collectively, our team has spent over 10,000 hours with patients in the context of over 270 projects. We accompany patients on their health care journeys from the moment they consider connecting with Mayo Clinic. Using human-centered design, we look for gaps and challenges to transform their experiences with health and health care.
