With more than 130 employees at 200+ sites across the globe, Medtronic LABS is an independent, non-profit organisation with multiple entities including an operating foundation, a social business, and in-country subsidiaries that creates technology-powered healthcare solutions for disadvantaged communities around the world. Digital technology is at the core of these solutions, which can be scaled for maximum impact and efficiency.
By offering a combination of software, low-cost medical devices, and healthcare services, LABS is improving patient outcomes in some of the world’s most vulnerable and underserved communities.
To better understand the needs of these communities, LABS’ field operation experts, health coaches, clinicians, technologists, and designers work with local partners to remove barriers to quality healthcare such as cost, access, and social isolation. Whether it’s training community health workers in Africa or conducting hearing clinics in India, Medtronic LABS is creating equity within global health systems. But there’s more work to do.
