After smaller rural clinics were closed due to COVID-19, this left a need to provide healthcare to these communities in a creative way. A 38ft customized commercial Winnebago RV was built to bridge the gap. This self-sustained unit provides patients with a direct access to Mayo Clinic and their providers without having to travel long distances. Equipped with two fully functional exam rooms, the Mayo Clinic Mobile Health Unit uses remote diagnostic tools to provide a variety of care. Management Engineering and Consulting was brought in to help reach an aggressive target launch date while leveraging existing technology and developing partnerships. In today's episode, Jon Eckdahl, Senior Health Systems Engineer, and Bhushan Pendse, Project Manager, with host Jodi Grimm discuss how their ability to move quickly while utilizing Agile methodology was instrumental in getting clinic in a Winnebago developed and available to rural communities.
