Mayo Clinic is one of the first healthcare organizations to deploy Microsoft 365 Copilot, the company’s new GenAI service that combines the power of LLMs with organizational data from Microsoft 365 to boost productivity levels.

The Mayo Clinic is testing the Microsoft 365 Copilot Early Access Program with hundreds of its clinical staff, doctors and healthcare workers. Microsoft 365 Copilot combines the power of LLMs with data in the Microsoft 365 apps, including calendars, emails, chats, documents and meeting transcripts to turn words into a productivity tool.

Leveraging GenAI, Mayo Clinic can transform healthcare to automate form-filling tasks to relieve some of the administrative demands that take up valuable time. With Microsoft 365, Mayo clinic aims to give healthcare providers valuable time back by automating tasks which will enhance patient care.

The Mayo Clinic will have access to Copilot tools to enable staff experience across apps such as Microsoft Outlook, Word, Excel and more.

Colette Stallbaumer, general manager, Microsoft 365, said: “Microsoft 365 Copilot has the ability to transform work across virtually every industry so people can focus on the most important work and help move their organizations forward. We’re excited to be helping customers like Mayo Clinic achieve their goals.”

Cris Ross, chief information officer at Mayo Clinic, said: “Privacy, ethics and safety are at the forefront of Mayo Clinic’s work with GenAI and LLMs.

“Using AI-powered tech will enhance Mayo Clinic’s ability to lead the transformation of healthcare while focusing on what matters most – providing the best possible care to our patients.”
