To support health professionals working around the clock to meet those most in need, we are making the following updates and resources available - at no charge - for clinicians, nurses and medical researchers, in response to new developments, evidence and guidance.
The world is facing an unprecedented human challenge with COVID-19, and this virus requires an unprecedented response. We face this challenge together, and we are doing all that we can at Medtronic to support the medical professionals we have worked with for decades to care for the COVID-19 patients who need our help. At Medtronic we are:
Reallocating our people to critical product manufacturing
Increaseing our overall production for COVID-19-related product
Deprioriting or postponing non-critical business activities, including training and education and clinical trials that do not support or that may interfere with COVID-19 operations
The information surrounding COVID-19 is changing by the day, but our commitment to serving you won’t. In this challenging time, we’re listening and working to respond when you need us, how you need us.
We’ve developed a low-cost, limited-release emergency response bed to quickly aid healthcare providers with efficient care during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Emergency Relief Bed is intended to serve those on the front lines — ranging from hospital emergency departments to triage and pop-up sites of care. We anticipate production of 10,000 beds a week to meet increased needs.
We’re exploring the viability of decontaminating N95 respirator masks for emergency use in healthcare settings through our expertise in sustainable solutions.
Genentech is actively responding to the global COVID-19 pandemic. We are continuing to evolve our services to provide greater flexibility and enable continuity of care during this challenging time. These include:
Extending the supply of self-administered medicines for Genentech Patient Foundation patients
Expanding Our Genentech Patient Foundation eligibility criteria to include ex-US patients staying in teh US due to travel restrictions
