What is the history and popularity of the app?

A website was really the next logical step for the Mayo Clinic. With so many organizations and businesses online today, websites have proven to be a valuable tool in furthering a cause. The current Mayo Clinic website features three main pages. The first provides up to date medical information on over 35 illnesses as well as lifestyle categories. The second educates readers on medical services available through the Mayo Clinic. The third sites shares details on education and research that include clinical trials and laboratory results. Today, the Mayo Clinic website still serves the same purpose: to educate and assist those that are suffering from a devastating illness as well as others that might be at risk.

What are the differences to other apps?

The Mayo Clinic’s website is unique for one main reason: it is the clinic’s online location. The Mayo Clinic is very well known, and has assisted many families coping with a tragic illness. The website carries that mission online to make it easier for anyone to gather information or learn about programs that could help them survive and live better.
