ACTIONABLE INSIGHTS FOR MORE FOCUSED CARE

Statistic: Patients with 2 or more chronic diseases represent 93% of the spend by Medicare FFS

Patients with complex, chronic, co-morbid conditions command the highest amount of healthcare resources and are most prone to re-hospitalizations. As the number of people with chronic conditions continues to rise, healthcare costs and utilization grow exponentially.1

For patients with complex, chronic, co-morbid conditions, much of their care happens outside the hospital setting. Medtronic Care Management Services helps you serve the unique needs of many of your at-risk patients through at-home, daily monitoring. Our remote patient monitoring programs deliver actionable insights to help care providers reduce the cost of care1 and improve patient outcomes.2

With a strong legacy of over 20 years in telehealth, Medtronic Care Management Services has spent nearly 7 million telehealth months monitoring health data, interacting with patients, and enabling care teams in clinical decision-making. We are committed to helping improve patient health and reducing the total cost of care to health systems, post-acute care providers, and payers.
