Article Synopsis: The Mayo Clinic has started the second phase of its $1.5 billion Plummer Project, named after Henry Plummer, MD, who created the world’s first patient-centered, unified health record at Mayo Clinic more than a century ago. It’s integrating this new electronic health record and revenue cycle management system, replacing three disparate EHRs that the healthcare provider currently uses.
