Medtronic Adds Telehealth Services With Cardiocom Acquisition

Medtronic hopes the $200 million purchase of telehealth firm Cardiocom will enhance its ability to respond to increasing demands on hospitals to better manage patient outcomes and costs. It will also greatly expand its customer base.

OrthoData Inc.

Surgeons would like to know, sooner, rather than later, whether there’s progress toward fusion following spinal fusions. That’s the mission of OrthoData Inc., which is developing an implantable, wireless, microelectronic spine fusion sensor that measures load on the implanted hardware to reveal the fusion status of patients sooner than plain X-rays.

Ortho-tag Inc.

There are times when joint replacement patients and their treating physicians need to quickly identify what kind of orthopedic device has been implanted, but the information isn’t always easy to find. Ortho-tag Inc. aims to change that with a tag that turns orthopedic implants into devices capable of communicating important information to treating physicians directly from the patient.
