Mayo Clinic announced a 10-year strategic partnership with Google that aims to “accelerate the pace of health care innovation through digital technologies.” Mayo Clinic intends to use advanced cloud computing, data analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) to improve its delivery of care, including, for example, using AI-enabled digital diagnostics to advance virtual care.

Mayo Clinic will store its patient data in Google Cloud and the companies will create machine-learning models to better diagnose and treat serious and complex diseases. Google also announced that it will open a new office in Rochester, Minn., near Mayo Clinic’s headquarters.
