Medtronic Builds Toward Integrated Care With A String Of Diabetes Deals

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

The company wants to transform itself from a device maker that sells mostly to type 1 diabetics, into an integrated-care company that serves the broader diabetes community, and it does not have all the capabilities it needs to accomplish that feat in house, explains Hooman Hakami, who heads Medtronic's diabetes unit.
