Medtronic to help manage UH Cleveland Medical Center's labs

Dublin, Ireland-based Medtronic and Cleveland-based University Hospitals have signed an agreement allowing Medtronic to manage select laboratories at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center.

Medtronic manages catheterization labs and operating rooms for more than 100 health systems around the world. The contract with UH is Medtronic's first managed services agreement with a U.S. health system.

Under the terms of the deal, UH Cleveland Medical Center will use technology and data from Medtronic to help improve workflow and efficiency in select catheterization and electrophysiology laboratories.

"Our collaboration with Medtronic gives us a unique opportunity to learn from their international best practices in inventory management and scheduling optimization," said Jeffrey Peters, MD, COO of UH. "We are excited to embed their expertise into our clinical operations, allowing our clinical staff to focus on providing the highest level of cardiovascular care for our patients."

Mr. Peters told the Star Tribune up to 10 Medtronic employees will perform nonclinical work at UH Cleveland Medical Center under the partnership.
