– Lumeon and Medtronic form strategic partnership to support Medtronic’s European healthcare provider customers in their transition to efficient, value-based care models.

Lumeon, a provider of Care Pathway Management (CPM), today announced that it has entered a strategic partnership with medical technology provider Medtronic to support Medtronic’s European healthcare provider customers in their transition to efficient, value-based care models. Medtronic IHS aims to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of patient care settings, such as cardiac catheterization labs and operating rooms, while optimizing patient pathways and care delivery from the time a patient is referred for treatment to the time he or she has fully recovered.
As the global healthcare market undergoes a shift from activity-based reimbursement to outcome-based reimbursement, providers are faced with the challenge of reinventing their business models while delivering care that ensures high-quality clinical, operational, and financial outcomes. Through the partnership, Medtronic’s Integrated Healthcare Solutions (IHS) business will leverage Lumeon’s leading CPM Platform to operationalize care pathways for surgery optimization and chronic disease management. These pathways allow providers to create more effective care coordination that reduces the cost of care delivery while minimizing unwarranted variation in care.
Lumeon’s CPM platform ensures that every patient stays on a personalized plan of care throughout his or her entire healthcare journey. It leverages intelligent automation and orchestration to manage a shared plan of care across multiple teams and settings. The platform automatically adjusts activities and deploying the right resource required for each individual patient in real-time data captured from patients, care teams and bi-directional integration with software such as EHRs, to keep everyone on course, presenting a ‘care-traffic control’ view of patient progress and automating tasks where possible.
Strategic Partnership Impact for Medtronic
“We are partnering with over 100 hospitals in Europe to develop evidence-based, best practice-informed pathways that deliver superior outcomes for the lowest possible cost,” said Frederic Noël, vice president, Medtronic IHS EMEA. “To help our customers embed these pathways in daily practice and apply them at scale, across their patient groups, we need more than pathway reference models and change management services. We must provide them with solutions to digitalize the pathway, and automate and orchestrate multi-disciplinary care delivery, leveraging Lumeon’s CPM platform.”
