Dr. Noseworthy emphasized how Americans deserve a high quality, sustainable health care system that will deliver safer patient care and better outcomes. One way that Mayo Clinic plans to achieve this goal is through its partnership with Optum Labs. This partnership will allow the harnessing of big data to determine the investments and activities to drive better care and lower costs.
The future of health care promises both positive outcomes such as Mayo's partnership with Optum Labs as well as some challenges ahead.

Dr. Noseworthy explained how Mayo Clinic "will not change who we are but how we do our work to make sure that we do drive our efficiencies."
