Medtronic Remote Monitoring Now Serves Four of the Five Largest Home Healthcare Companies in the United States

Company’s Cardicom business enters partnership with LHC Group

February 6, 2015 — Medtronic announced a partnership agreement between its Cardiocom business and LHC Group, a U.S. provider of home health, hospice and comprehensive post-acute healthcare services, to provide integrated clinical telehealth services and medical technology to its patients. This agreement adds to the list of home health care organizations that are now customers of Cardiocom, Medtronic's Patient Monitoring Services business. Four of the five largest home health care companies in the United States are now Medtronic customers.

"As more health systems and Accountable Care Organizations look toward maximizing value and population health models, post-acute care providers are playing a critical role in ensuring patients remain healthy through the transition from the hospital to their homes," said Daniel L. Cosentino, vice president and general manager of Medtronic's Cardiocom business. "We are proud to be providing LHC Group, and all of our partners, with easy-to-use telehealth technology and clinical support services to complement their in-home visit of patients to keep them healthy and out of the hospital."

The agreement enables Medtronic to provide telehealth devices for LHC Group's existing care transitions program, T3 -Transitions, Training and Triage - to support its disease management approach that has been clinically proven to reduce emergency room visits and prevent avoidable readmissions. Specifically, LHC Group will be utilizing the Commander Flex remote patient monitoring devices, which simplifies home telehealth management and education for patients with complex conditions such as heart failure, hypertension, COPD and diabetes. The Commander Flex system allows LHC to conduct the daily monitoring of symptoms and vital signs to anticipate events, assess risk and communicate with patients before an acute event such as a hospitalization, providing the most appropriate and cost effective care to its patients.

Medtronic's innovative home telemonitoring equipment and telehealth services enable health professionals to identify symptomatic patients and intervene early to prevent unnecessary hospitalizations.
