Hospitals: A successful Kick Off

On January 21 we successfully kicked off our newest working group HOSPITALS with more than 30 participants from around the world.

Thank you to the Parc Taulí Hospital Barcelona, Tel Aviv Medical Center, German Heart Center Berlin, Charité – University Clinic Berlin, Unfallkrankenhaus Berlin, Medical University Graz, University Clinic Eppendorf, University Clinic Basel and Hospital of the Armed Forces Berlin for joining us and enriching the kick off with you expertise.

Special thanks to Jonathan Morris, who gave a fantastic presentation about the wide scope of additive manufacturing at the Mayo Clinic, thus providing an inspiration for other hospitals.

In this first discussion, the following key topics for the working group were raised:

  • Change management: Decision makers need to know what to expect with the use of additive manufacturing technologies.
  • Quality management: Establishment of new standards. Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs( are often already regulated for in-house processes, but are regulated differently for external suppliers.
  • Increase awareness of materials, especially new materials
  • networking with industry
  • further training programs

In the next working group meetings, we would like to address the raised topics in more detail.

We will start on 2 March 2021 with the topic of quality management, inviting Simon Schlagintweit from TÜV Süd Service GmbH and Dr. Özlem Weiß, CEO of Expertants GmbH.
The speakers head our medical working groups Approval and Materials and are well-known experts on the topic of quality management in the medical sector.

In the following working group meeting, we will then address the topic of change management.
