Historically Medtronic employed its technological expertise to design and manufacture medical devices. But today’s healthcare challenges compel us to do more. To truly enhance care and achieve our Mission of alleviating pain, restoring health, and extending life for people around the world, we must use our technology to develop value-based healthcare.
We are not daunted by the task, rather inspired to partner with others to spur progress. One example? Our sponsorship of a research paper by the Harvard Business Review Analytic Services to identify and discuss three ways healthcare can leverage data.
All must collaborate in gathering, analyzing, acting on, measuring, standardizing, and optimizing the use of appropriate data. This is the foundation for the improved value-based health care delivery of the future.
At Medtronic, we believe that to truly enhance care, we must help lead the industry toward the future— a value-based system driven by data and analytics to improve clinical and economic outcomes.
Our work furthering the integration of data and analytics is part of the our Further, Together initiative to devise cost-efficient, innovative solutions, together with healthcare providers, payers, and policymakers.
Our technologies, services and solutions — coupled with our commitment to aligning value, developing meaningful innovations and improving global access — are merely the latest examples of Medtronic’s six-decade commitment to serving those who provide care.
