When talking about implementing AM technologies in the medical sector, hospitals are one of the biggest and most important players. That is why we established a working group exclusively for employees in hospitals like physicians, nurses, technicians and the administrations – with an option to later open the group for suppliers and consultants.
Hospitals is also aimed at different medical fields to bring them closer together via the common interface AM.
In January 2021 at the first Hospitals meeting, we welcomed 34 participants from 6 nations. Since then members of this working group are engaged in discussions on quality management, change management and the general AM requirements and needs hospitals have.
At the next meeting on October 13 at 4.30 pm we are now opening our doors to everyone interested in the topic of AM in Hospitals and are happy to welcome one of the pioneers of this field as a speaker: Jonathan Morris (Medical Director – Anatomic Modeling Lab, Department of Radiology, Mayo Clinic) has more than 20 years of experience in the field of medical AM and is one of the leading experts in in house printing who has successfully established clinical 3D printing services at Mayo Clinic. His expertise is in the use of point of care 3D printing/additive manufacturing for preoperative planning and custom surgical guides. Additionally, Dr. Morris is focused on the development and deployment of extended realities, VR/AR in medical education, intraoperative guidance, and medical capital equipment training. Clinically, he focuses on minimally invasive thermal ablation of tumors in the neuroaxis.
Dr. Morris will be talking about “Point of Care Manufacturing: Looking at the Big Picture” at the virtual meeting in October and the working group under the lead of Dr. Cora Lüders-Theuerkauf would like to invite you to participate in the following discussion on Change Management.
