About the Mayo Clinic Center for Innovation
Established in 2008, the Mayo Clinic Center for Innovation (CFI) uses a patient-centered focus to transform the way health care is experienced and delivered. CFI is a multidisciplinary center that includes practicing physicians and scientists, along with experts in research and design, technology and project management. Central to the methodology used by CFI is design thinking -- introduced to the clinical practice at Mayo Clinic by the first known team of designers embedded in a medical practice. CFI design researchers have led several transformational changes in health care practices, following a long tradition of Mayo Clinic innovations focused on patient needs.
