The healthcare organization I chose to review is the Mayo Clinic. Their mission is inspiring hope and promoting health through integrated clinical practice, education, and research. The Mayo Clinic’s vision is transforming medicine to connect and cure as the global authority in the care of serious or complex diseases (Mayo Clinic, 2020). The Mayo Clinic’s evidence-based practice research program is dedicated to improving the quality, effectiveness, and appropriateness of health care by synthesizing research evidence and facilitating the translation of findings into clinical practice. Also, the Mayo Clinic is one of only 12 institutions in the United States currently designated and funded as an evidence-based practice center by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). The Evidenced-Based Practice Research Program at Mayo Clinic researches to evaluate and summarize all available evidence on a particular health care issue (Mayo Clinic, 2020). I believe the Mayo Clinic’s work is grounded in evidence-based practice because they have a research program solely dedicated to evidence-based practice. The information I discovered on the Mayo Clinic’s website has positively affected my perception of their organization because of its mission and vision statements as well as their research program dedicated to evidence-based practice. People with difficult and enigmatic medical conditions travel across the country and world to obtain medical care at the Mayo Clinic.
