Value-Based Health Care by implementing 3D technologies in hospital practices – Presented by Ruben Timmers, Saxion University of Applied Science

Value-Based Health Care by implementing 3D technologies in hospital practices – Presented by Presented by Ruben Timmers, Saxion University of Applied Science & Barry Kolenaar and Mark van Kooten, Medisch Spectrum Twente, at the 3D Medical Conference, which takes place on January 30-31, 2019, at MECC Maastricht, The Netherlands.

Clinical care is customization. The in industry proven possibilities of 3D (scan, visualisation and printing) technologies provide the possibilities for patient-specific medical planning and treatment.

3D technology in healthcare has a lot of potential, however successful implementation is still at a very early stage. After a number of initial cases, in collaboration with Saxion FabLab Enschede, Medisch Spectrum Twente acknowledges the added value of the application of 3D technologies, as witnessed by the establishment of a medical 3D lab inside the MST.

In this presentation the approach and experiences of implementing 3D technologies in clinical care will be presented in co-presentation with specialists of the MST.
