Mayo Clinic to Secure & Store Patient Data in Google Cloud
Google Cloud will secure and store Mayo Clinic’s data while working with Mayo Clinic to apply AI and other cloud computing technologies to solve complex health care problems. However, Mayo Clinic will continue to control access and use of its patient data by using Google’s cloud technologies. Mayo Clinic will specifically authorize the use of data in projects to create new health care insights and solutions in conjunction with partners, including Google. Mayo Clinic will manage access to all data using rigorous long-standing institutional controls.
Google to Open New Office in Rochester
As part of the partnership, Google also will open a new office in Rochester, where its engineers will work side by side with Mayo Clinic researchers, physicians, information technology staff and data scientists, to apply advanced computing techniques to healthcare problems.
“We’re proud to partner with the Mayo Clinic in its mission to bring the best health care to every patient,” said Google CEO Sundar Pichai. “Health care is one of the most important fields that technology will help transform over the next decade, and it’s a major area of investment for Google. By pairing the Mayo Clinic’s world-class clinical expertise with our capabilities in AI and cloud computing, we have an extraordinary opportunity to develop services that will significantly improve lives.”
What This Partnership Means for Patients
“Data-driven medical innovation is growing exponentially, and our partnership with Google will help us lead the digital transformation in health care,” says Gianrico Farrugia, M.D., president and CEO of Mayo Clinic. “It will empower us to solve some of the most complex medical problems; better anticipate the needs of people we serve; and meet them when, where and how they need us.
