Boston Scientific Corporation and Mayo Clinic announced a continuing collaboration where the two organizations share intellectual property and stimulate the rapid development of medical devices to address unmet clinical needs.
Small and nimble teams of Boston Scientific engineers and Mayo Clinic physicians have been working together to develop new medical technologies in areas that include interventional cardiology, heart rhythm management, endoscopy, neuromodulation, urology and pelvic health. The collaboration enables both parties to contribute ideas and intellectual property to solve pressing medical problems and builds upon the strengths of both parties. Mayo Clinic, which cared for 1.3 million patients in 2015, offers cutting-edge medical and surgical expertise in all disciplines, and has a long history of innovative clinical research and technology development.
Michael F. Mahoney, president and CEO, Boston Scientific Said, Open approaches to innovation, such as our collaboration with Mayo Clinic, can more quickly put better tools and devices in the hands of physicians to improve the health and well-being of patients.
