The Science Behind Healthcare Meaningful Innovation

Research, data, analysis — the foundation of innovation that improves lives

No one stakeholder has all the answers. To successfully innovate solutions to the pressing issues in healthcare, we need input from those who study healthcare, administer care, and receive care. We facilitate discussion and encourage innovation. Find out how.

Creating solutions to complex challenges starts with shared knowledge. We are proud to sponsor the Harvard Business Review (HBR) Innovation Center, a collection of articles that details ideas, initiatives, and issues in healthcare innovation.


THREE KEYS TO UNLOCKING DATA-DRIVEN HEALTHCARE

Three Keys to Unlocking Data-Driven Health Care PDF thumbnail

Medtronic sponsored a research paper by the Harvard Business Review Analytic Services to identify and discuss three ways healthcare can leverage data. The paper, “Three Keys to Unlocking Data-Driven Healthcare,” is a thought-provoking examination of ways in which data and analytics can drive the transformation of healthcare. Healthcare generates volumes of data — the challenge is knowing which data to use and how.


MORE THAN TRACKING: THE PROMISE OF SENSORS TO IMPROVE OUTCOMES AND REDUCE COSTS

Biosensor Technology

Biosensor technology — and its adoption by the healthcare industry — is expanding rapidly. Working with partners around the globe, Medtronic is developing sensor-based solutions with the potential to help patients living with diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, and other chronic conditions.


ACCELERATING INNOVATION WITH 3D PRINTING

Additive manufacturing, more commonly known as 3D printing, allows Medtronic scientists and engineers to accelerate research and development. The ability to rapidly create prototypes of tools and models of human anatomy enable improved simulation and training. Innovation fast-tracked.
