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.
