BCS Policy last updated 01/21/2020
Our Mission is to make and sell devices that alleviate pain, restore health and extend life. We recognize that healthcare professionals – those best suited to understand the needs of their patients, the performance of medical devices in the clinical setting and unmet treatment needs – are critical partners in our ability to fulfill our Mission. We collaborate with physicians to create new products and therapies and to improve existing products. We provide world-class training and education on the safe and effective use of our products and therapies to healthcare professionals. We sponsor scientific research conducted by healthcare professionals to gather clinical evidence related to our products. All of these interactions are for the ultimate benefit of patients.
In no instance will Medtronic offer or provide a payment to a Customer as an unlawful inducement to purchase, lease, recommend, use, arrange for the purchase or lease of, or prescribe a Medtronic product. Our Global Business Conduct Standards Policy defines 'Customer' to include any institution or individual, other than an individual patient, including any medical or healthcare professional or entity, in a position to purchase, lease, recommend, use, arrange for the purchase or lease of, or prescribe Medtronic products. Medtronic also considers persons employed by a Customer, a close family member of a Customer or an organization affiliated with a Customer to be within scope when determining whether an entity or individual should be treated as a 'Customer' under our policies.
