OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY STRATEGIES

  • Healthcare Optimization Consulting: PRO|CV™ Process Redesign and Optimization for Cardiovascular Services Medtronic healthcare optimization consultants work with leading-edge healthcare systems to optimize care pathways and processes that help expand patient access and improve the cost-effectiveness of healthcare delivery. Learn more and take a self assessment to identify the specific challenges at your hospital or clinic that a healthcare optimization engagement may be able to help you improve.

OPERATING ROOM SAFETY

  • Surgical Plume and COVID-19: Surgical societies have published recommendations on best practices in the Operating Room with COVID-19 patients. One of these practices is to implement technologies that help remove and filter surgical plume. Medtronic has developed a content platform to help you better understand the recommendations and what technologies are available, plus links to frequently asked questions and useful product information.

Cardiac and Vascular Solutions

We’re committed to forging new paths and partnerships that help healthcare systems improve clinical outcomes, expand access to care, and optimize operational efficiencies.

ELECTIVE PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY INTERVENTION (PCI)

  • Implementation Toolkit: Same Day Discharge PCI Program Free Medtronic Academy registration and login required. Same-day discharge reduces the amount of time a patient spends in the hospital, so it can improve both patient satisfaction and comfort--especially during today’s COVID-19 pandemic. It can also help address the backlog of elective procedures while helping reduce patient fear, drive efficiency to impact hospital economic health, and maximize virtual solutions.
  • Transradial PCI to Help Increase Patient Satisfaction and Reduce Length of Stay: Transradial PCI ARC Curriculum This unique curriculum provides fully customizable solutions to meet the clinical training and educational needs of physicians, staff, and administrators — to build an efficient transradial practice and improve patient experiences.

INCREASE REMOTE PATIENT MANAGEMENT EFFICIENCIES

  • Case Study: Device Clinic Overcomes Capacity Barriers to Serve New PatientsLearn how a regional medical center in Michigan increased capabilities to manage patients remotely and increased device clinic capacity by 29% without additional resources.
  • Introducing the FocusOnSM Accelerate Program for the Reveal LINQ™ Insertable Cardiac Monitoring (ICM) System Medtronic is currently offering a 120-day trial of the FocusOn Monitoring Service* that allows you to have the data from your Reveal LINQ ICM and LINQ II™ ICM patients monitored by our certified cardiac technicians. As the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we believe this service can help manage social distancing, allow remote patient care where possible, and minimize burden on the healthcare system. Ask your local Medtronic sales representative for specific details regarding billing.

REDUCE COMPLICATIONS, ER VISITS AND HOSPITALIZATIONS

ATRIAL FIBRILLATION (AF)

  • Scientific Exchange Series: Managing AF Patients in the COVID Era Free Medtronic Academy registration and login required. This program is designed to share concepts and practices used in the management of an AF Clinic in the COVID era.
  • Educational Webinar: Operationalizing an Atrial Fibrillation (AF) Clinic During COVID-19 Free Medtronic Academy registration and login required. In this webinar recording, Amber Seiler shares Cone Health’s experiences in operationalizing their AF clinic during COVID-19. Learn how cardiac monitoring has played a significant role and how they’ve incorporated the use of additional technology to assure optimized AF patient care.

Comprehensive Respiratory Portfolio

As you mobilize against the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re here to provide a comprehensive respiratory portfolio and resources that are accessible, remotely enabled, and rapidly deployable.

RECOGNIZE PATIENT DECLINE

  • Continuously and remotely monitor patient respiratory status with the simplified Vital Sync™ Remote Monitoring Crisis Response Program.
  • Use Nellcor™ pulse oximetry and Microstream™ continuous capnography monitoring to help identify patients who1:
    – Require increased respiratory support
    – Exhibit decreased oxygen saturation and increased respiratory rate
  • Simplify the detection of early changes in respiratory status with a single number ― the Integrated Pulmonary Index™ (IPI) algorithm. The IPI combines four parameters (RR, PR, SpO2, and etCO2) from Microstream™ capnography and Nellcor™ pulse oximetry data.

REDUCE CLINICIAN EXPOSURE

MAXIMIZE LIMITED RESOURCES

  • Access our Ventilator Academy for comprehensive ventilator training and resources. These trainings help you operate our ventilators with confidence and efficiency so you can focus on achieving better patient outcomes. They can be quickly implemented to onboard staff as you work to meet the rising influx of patients.
  • Our comprehensive dialysis access portfolio supports urgent and acute start peritoneal dialysis (PD) for critical care patients.
  • Learn how to reclaim time on the Medical-Surgical floor.
  • Our consultative expertise in remote monitoring can get you up and running quickly and smoothly with simplified remote implementation.
  • Our workflow and alarm optimization services and expertise can help clinicians save valuable time.
