Today patients typically go into a doctor’s office or hospital to receive care. But that delivery model isn’t always efficient or convenient. Our fast-paced, technology-driven world demands healthcare solutions that work for patients and clinicians — wherever they are. With features like wireless connectivity and Bluetooth™*, healthcare technology can help keep everyone connected and deliver care that is efficient, effective, and accessible to those who need it most. Your doctor will see you now — but it might be by phone or computer.
Healthcare technology makes remote care possible — which is better for everyone. It’s transforming the way patients are assessed, monitored, and treated to make it more convenient for patients and to provide clinicians with better insights. Many of our connected devices can communicate directly with smartphones and tablets via mobile apps, making coordinating care with doctors easier and safer.
In fact, Medtronic is the only company whose entire portfolio of cardiac implantable electronic devices is compatible with a smartphone app. And our smartphone-connected insulin pump system can be used for patients as young as 2 years old, giving parents peace of mind about their children’s care. By connecting our technology to smartphones and tablets, we’re putting the power of healthcare into people’s hands.
