Medtronic has teamed up with the French postal service for a data partnership that aims to build an artificial intelligence-powered platform in support of a range of digital telehealth services.

La Poste—which also provides banking and insurance services, in addition to mail delivery—has outlined plans this year to expand further into healthcare, and use its large network of locations across France and the globe to set the stage for offering transport and logistics for physical medical equipment, as well as the management of electronic patient records.

“At a time when the La Poste Group, as an independent and ethical party, unveils its ambition in the healthcare sector, the announcement of this strategic partnership with Medtronic, a major player in healthcare technology, is the first milestone of our commitment to accelerating innovation in healthcare by leveraging data and AI to optimize care journeys,” Dominique Pon, CEO of La Poste’s health and autonomy division, said in a statement.
