YOUR BEST CARE DEMANDS OUR BEST IDEAS
Being included among top global innovators feels good. Improving healthcare? That feels even better.

The good ole days.
Let’s be honest: They weren’t always that good.
When technology has us busier than ever and feeling over-connected to the world around us, the constant input of information can be overwhelming. It can make a person wax for a simpler time, long gone by.
But before you do, ask someone managing their diabetes with our FreeStyle Libre 14 day system whether they miss sticking their fingers to measure and log their glucose a dozen times a day.
Or talk to someone enjoying the company of a parent or grandparent still with them thanks to a MitraClip that repaired the most common heart valve disorder, one that’s been approved to help many more.
Or ask a parent eternally grateful for the Amplatzer Piccolo Occluder, designed to close an opening in the hearts of preemie babies.
Talk to people feeling relief from their chronic, debilitating pain thanks to the Proclaim XR recharge-free stimulation system that delivers low-amplitude, intermittent bursts of electricity.
And ask doctors who are making better use of their time and lab space with the Alinity system, delivering accurate lab results quicker and more efficiently. And while you’re there, ask the people sitting there, waiting anxiously for those results that will impact up to 70 percent of clinical decisions.
The past is best left there. That’s why we continue to innovate.
And we’re gratified to be recognized for it as Abbott has been named to Clarivate’s collection of the Derwent Top 100 Global Innovators.
But what feels best of all is bringing our best ideas to life to help those who will benefit most. The good ole days? Not good enough, really.
Not when there is so much we can do to help those living with diabetes, heart disease, chronic pain and tremor and the long wait for accurate test results to make critical decisions when seconds count.
Our mission is to deliver tomorrow. We can’t wait to show you what’s next.
