Reimagining healthcare through personalized treatment

Healthcare Track

3D technology is already helping to tackle some of the growing complexities and challenges in healthcare, which in turn go hand-in-hand for a more sustainable future. Patient-specific technology is already enabling greater efficiencies across the healthcare value chain from R&D to the OR, and driving better patient outcomes focused on “getting it right the first time” through a higher level of personalization and predictability. In order to make this a reality, together as an industry we will need more consistent and comprehensive regulation that support meaningful innovations in Medical Technology.

For two days, explore these important topics with us and industry leaders so that we can work together towards a more sustainable tomorrow.
