Mike on Medtech: 3D Printing Healthcare at the Point of Care

Sean Fenske and Mike Drues discuss the regulatory implications with 3D printing devices at a healthcare facility.

In this episode of Mike on Medtech with Mike Drues, president of Vascular Sciences, we discuss my lastest Editor’s Letter that appeared in the March issue of MPO. Click here to read that Letter. In it, I bring up a potential future view of healthcare and more specifically, how technology is delivered. I ponder if hospitals or doctor’s offices will employ the use of 3D printing to develop devices, implants, and instruments. One aspect of this topic, however, I was unable to address within the Letter was the regulatory and liability issues that go along with such a plan. As such, that’s the topic of discussion for this episode of Mike on Medtech. Listen to this episode and then see if you think this practice will become accepted in the near or far-off future, or will it never materialize at all. If you have comments, questions, or ideas to share on this topic, please share them with me at sfenske@rodmanmedia.com so I can perhaps discuss them with Mike in an upcoming episode.
