YWM2015 – Medtronic, Working on patient goals
Covidien has long been involved in bariatrics, and the reach they’ve been able to attain is only growing after a recent acquisition by Medtronic. I spoke with Patric, who is part of a group under Covidien that is reaching out to patients to go beyond surgical treatment and getting an understanding of what patients think about some of the ideas that they have.
Based on what they’ve heard from patients at YWM over the last couple years, they feel they are going in the right direction… and hope that they are able to reach those goals even quicker. And with what he spoke about in regard to the holistic approach that they are working towards, this is something I hope to follow more closely in the coming months.
