APPLETON -- ThedaCare in Appleton announces an exciting new partnership today.
They'll be the first Wisconsin Healthcare System to join forces with the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. Now, the two facilities will be able to consult each other electronically. This means patients in the Fox Valley won't have to travel out of state for extra services. "Behind the scenes our staff will put that together and it is sent to Mayo Clinic's electronic medical records. Their staff person will review it and send back a written report," says Dr. William Fletcher, a cardiologist with ThedaCare.
The goal is for the whole process to take three to five days. The program will be implemented over the next few months.
