Managing a chronic illness can feel like a full-time job. Between juggling multiple appointments with an array of specialists and following a meticulous care plan, patients dealing with conditions like diabetes have a lot on their plate.
Medtech titan Medtronic (NYSE:MDT) wants to help change that. The company’s CEO, Omar Ishrak, placed his faith in value-based care as the future of healthcare. And Medtronic points to its work with Diabeter, a chain of diabetes clinics in the Netherlands that it acquired in 2015, as evidence of its progress towards delivering more value for patients.
