Patients Benefit from Mayo Clinic Care Network
The exceptional care NorthBay Healthcare patients receive has been made even better thanks to a collaborative relationship with Mayo Clinic, launched in May 2016. NorthBay is a proud member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, helping our patients get answers to complex medical questions—and peace of mind—while staying close to home.
In the first 16 months of this remarkable collaboration, 25 NorthBay physicians across 14 specialties submitted 188 eConsults—a process that allows NorthBay doctors to connect electronically and directly with Mayo specialists for additional input on a patient’s care and at no cost to the patient.
The Mayo Clinic Care Network uses physician collaboration and technology to deliver a full spectrum of medical expertise, enhancing the care NorthBay can deliver on complex cases that might otherwise require a referral to a specialist outside of Solano County.
In addition to eConsults with Mayo Clinic, North-Bay doctors have access to additional services that include:
- AskMayoExpert, an online clinical resource that gives providers quick access to the latest Mayo-vetted information on the management, care and treatment of a variety of medical conditions.
- Health care consulting, which allows NorthBay to consult with Mayo Clinic as we work to set new standards in patient care as well as clinical, operational and administrative areas.
- eBoard conferences that invite NorthBay doctors to present and discuss complex cases, such as complex cancer diagnoses and treatments, with a multidisciplinary panel of Mayo Clinic specialists and other members of the care network.
NorthBay also has access to Mayo’s extensive library of patient education materials and, in addition to ongoing educational opportunities, our staff have access to Mayo Clinic grand rounds, regular presentations that feature Mayo Clinic physicians and scientists.
