The Mayo Clinic OB Nest team created 14 experiments where patients were exposed to new experiences and environments, allowing the team to better understand the impact on the patient and provider experience. Experiments included themes of in-home monitoring, opening access, patient-driven appointments, a custom-tailored experience, online communities for patients and appointments from a distance.
The Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology is planning on introducing several of the new ideas to their practice.
