FY19 Impact Report

In FY19, Medtronic LABS launched our tele-audiology offering to provide affordable last mile hearing care in partnership with Sivantos. The Sivantos technology includes high quality, affordable hearing aids integrated with a digital application for remote fitting and tele-audiology.

Now, with our integrated offering, Shruti patients receive comprehensive, community-based diagnosis for ear diseases and hearing loss as well as targeted referrals to our network of affordable therapies.
