Zoom on... Medtronic

with Federico Montechiaro

Sr. Business Manager Connectivity & Insights and Monitoring Services

What do you expect of your participation at the European Congress on eCardiology and eHealth?

Meeting healthcare professionals interested in the Medtronic solutions for efficiency and quality of care through digital tools and innovative services.

What type of professionals will you be most looking forward to meeting on site?

Implanting physicians, technicians and nurses involved in patient follow-up.

According to you, what would most help eCardiology and eHealth to grow in the very near future?

Involving more and more non-clinical stakeholders and authorities, because the main barrier for adoption of e-health solutions in Europe is the difficulty in financing and the lack of reimbursement. The conference should continue in its spirit of bringing together these different stakeholders, leveraging the cross-functional approach, so that healthcare providers, administrators, medical device and medical IT industry, health economists can work together for continuous improvement of quality of care and efficiency, in a resource-constrained environment.
