Remote Care COVID-19 RECOVERY RESOURCE CENTRE

HOW WE CAN HELP

We’re dedicated to helping healthcare teams expand remote care and patient access while reducing exposure for both patients and staff without compromising on the quality of care.

  • Demand, and acceptance for remote patient monitoring (RPM) and digital patient engagement have surged under Covid-19.
  • These virtual health solutions can improve the effectiveness and efficiency of maintaining patients at home, thereby avoiding unnecessary hospital stays, increasing patient engagement, improving clinical outcomes, and reducing the costs of care.
  • Hospitals need  flexible solutions that can support and empower patients in their journey across a variety of diseases and use cases.
  • Medtronic offers digital platforms, combined with patient and care team-facing services, enabling remote patient monitoring and empowering them to better manage their own care.
