Comprehensive Collaborative Team Approach to Care

Posted by mpflood7 @mpflood7, Oct 10 12:39pm

I have been trying to navigate the Mayo system and understand that in the general Internal Medicine department there is a program where a patient is given a General Medical Exam by an Internist who then plays quarterback and brings in Specialists who for a Comprehensive “Multi-Specialty, Integrated, Collaborative and Team”, which I’ll call MICT. However, I don’t see it described on the Mayo website. Meanwhile, per the below, I did see almost “exactly” the same on Cleveland Clinic’s website. I’d prefer to go to the Mayo Clinic – but don’t want to travel 1000s of miles (from Florida) only to find out the Mayo program I was wrong and Mayo’s program is not the same, and be disappointed. I also have only one chance financially to get this right (to go to a top academic medical center). I’d favor Mayo too due to the rankings, kindness I’ve come across in the administrative staff and lower cost (lodging etc). Does anyone have any thoughts on this and/or can answer my question? Thank you.

I do not think a program like the one you describe exists at Mayo. HOWEVER, once you see a doctor at Mayo, s/he will “pull in” other specialists as needed.

Thanks. I see I forgot to include the website describing the Cleveland Clinic program (National Consultation Service). It is exactly what I am looking for. From what Mayo has told me, it seems Mayo has the same program though I haven’t seen it defined on Mayo’s website. Do you (or anyone) again know if Mayo has this same program? Any insights (by anyone and everyone) would be appreciated beyong words.

Since Colleen Young has been so good at pulling in others for comnents, how do I contact her too?

@mpflood7 – If I'm not mistaken the concept of multispecialty teamwork originated with Mayo Clinic.

Great John! Thank you! I like to read these substantive articles and they are on point!

I just wonder why they don’t lay it out (summarized) like Cleveland Clinic does.

I’m also going to try to get Colleen’s perspective but thank you again. Excellent articles.

Hi Colleen – John gave me two excellent articles but any thoughts on my question regarding Mayo Clinic’s patient care approach vis-a-vis the National Consultation Service approach at the Cleveland Clinic? If Mayo has the same program, I’ll plan on going to Mayo…

John – one of the articles you sent said the Cleveland Clinic copied their model of patient care (multi-specialty, integrated, collaborative team) approach from the Mayo Clinic. Interesting. Thank you again.

Hi @mpflood7, I think the first one I searched for using the following Google search "Comprehensive Collaborative Team Approach to Care +mayo clinic" — basically your title text followed by a space and +mayo clinic. I used a free URL shortener site to make the six line URL take up less room. Here's the shortened version of the link with all of the coding – https://rb.gy/ntpwlv

I normally just use quotation marks around a phrase to find a particular phrase and a plus + or minus – sign to include a term or exclude a term in a search – here's more on advanced searching – https://support.google.com/websearch/answer/35890?hl=en

Thank you very much.

@mpflood7 I see that @johnbishop has found many resources for you about Mayo Clinic's approach to care. Simply put Mayo Clinic is the world's oldest and largest integrated multispecialty group medical practice. Patient centered care is part of our DNA.

Here's more information:
– Why Choose Mayo Clinic https://www.mayoclinic.org/why-choose-mayo-clinic
– What makes care at Mayo Clinic different? https://www.mayoclinic.org/why-choose-mayo-clinic/what-makes-mayo-clinic-different
– Your guide to getting care at Mayo Clinic https://www.mayoclinic.org/patient-visitor-guide

MPFlood, you've started a few discussions about getting care at Mayo Clinic and I know this is a big decision both medically and financially. Please let us know if after reading the linked articles, there is still something holding you back from calling Mayo Clinic. The phone call costs nothing and they can answer questions that more specifically address your situation.
