Medtronic inks deal with Canary Health, enters pre-diabetes market

Medtronic will form a strategic partnership with digital health business Canary Health to provide a full spectrum of diabetes management solutions.

Los Angeles-based Canary Health offers self-management programs that reduce the cost of care and make a significant impact in preventing and stopping the progression of chronic diseases including diabetes, arthritis, heart disease and depression, according to their website.

Medtronic, headquartered in Minneapolis, will act as a reseller of Canary Health's platform programs. In addition to pre-diabetes management solutions, Medtronic plans to offer Canary Health's other chronic self-management programs relating to diabetes.

The two companies will also develop programs that combine Medtronic's devices, services and infrastructure with Canary Health's behavior change programs, design insights and user engagement reports.
