Better health access for our world

By combining the power of healthcare technology with strong partnerships, Medtronic is helping put equity within reach.

More than half the world’s population lacks access to essential healthcare. And the deadliest diseases disproportionately impact marginalized populations. Healthcare technology can be a profound equalizer. We partner with health systems to bring revolutionary technology to communities around the world.

The only health systems innovator that develops community-based, tech-enabled solutions for marginalized populations, Medtronic LABS has reached over 1M patients to date. An independent nonprofit organization funded by Medtronic, LABS drives system-level transformation to enable scalable, sustainable, last-mile healthcare delivery.

Emerging technology is bringing healthcare to more people in new ways. We harness the power of data to address undertreatment, detect risk and redefine patient access. From preventive care to research-driven treatment models, Medtronic delivers tech-enabled solutions for marginalized populations and health systems.

We tailor our approach to meet the specific health needs of individual communities. By partnering with health systems, governments, businesses, NGOs, and others, we identify gaps in care to build customized programs. Our partnerships rally the best minds to advance health equity and drive system-level transformation.
