Mayo Clinic, Dartmouth-Hitchcock announce collaboration
Date:7/27/2012

LEBANON, N.H. -- Mayo Clinic and Dartmouth-Hitchcock (D-H) today announced a formal collaboration to bring the strengths of both organizations to the goal of improving health and health care quality while lowering overall costs. Under the agreement, D-H will become a member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, a growing network of like-minded organizations that share a commitment to serving patients and their families.

"Dartmouth-Hitchcock and Mayo share a long history of working to deliver high-quality, cost-effective, safe, value-based health care," says James Weinstein, D.O., CEO and President of D-H. "From creating the High Value Healthcare Collaborative with other partners, to advancing the patient's voice in health care decisions, Mayo and D-H have pursued a common vision, mission and commitment to a healthy population."

Dartmouth-Hitchcock remains an independent entity under the agreement. As a member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, D-H physicians and providers will have access to Mayo Clinic resources, including tools to promote physician-to-physician consultations and a point-of-care database of best-practice information on disease management, care guidelines, treatment recommendations and reference materials.

"Health care in America is at a crossroads," says John Noseworthy, M.D., president and CEO of Mayo Clinic. "Providers are seeking meaningful relationships that allow them to best address their patients' needs while improving the efficiency and effectiveness of care. The Mayo Clinic Care Network is about advancing longstanding relationships with organizations that share a commitment to improving care and value for our patients. We are very proud to welcome Dartmouth-Hitchcock into the Mayo Clinic Care Network and building the long tradition of collaboration between our two organizations to serve patients throughout this region."

This collaboration gives Mayo Clinic a unique relationship in the Northeast corridor of the United States and strengthens long-standing ties between the two organizations that date back to the founding of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Clinic in 1927. More recently, D-H and Mayo have been frequent collaborators on research, grants, clinical care, health policy and health reform.

"Over the past year, Mayo Clinic Care Network has worked with members across the country to ensure patients can receive care close to home whenever possible," says David Hayes, M.D., Medical Director of Mayo Clinic Care Network. "We are delighted to welcome such a prestigious institution to the network and look forward to working with Dartmouth-Hitchcock for years to come."

In addition to their collaboration through the Maya Clinic Care Network, Mayo and D-H are discussing a number of future joint projects, including advancing population health using large data systems, expanded clinical and basic research, joint educational initiatives and advancement of the science of health care delivery.

"Mayo Clinic is one of the most respected health care institutions in the world," says Dr. Weinstein. "They are an exemplar of excellent patient-focused care and the highest professional standards. Dartmouth-Hitchcock has valued our long and close relationship and we are delighted to take it a step further with this formal collaboration."

The Mayo Clinic Care Network represents non-ownership relationships. Members are like-minded organizations that share a goal of improving the delivery of health care in their communities through high-quality, collaborative medical care. Launched last year, Mayo Clinic Care Network has membership that extends to Arizona, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire and North Dakota.
