The phenomenon of decentralization of production generated by the use of Additive Manufacturing has led to an increase in technology within hospitals, creating real 3D printing departments (Point-of-Care).
Having an internal dedicated structure allows the hospital/department to cut workflow times, support innovative initiatives and reduce the overall costs incurred by the hospital.
Benefits for patients: optimization of the outcome through 3D printed diagnostic models and better awareness of what is happening, which means higher consensus and trust in the doctor's work.
Benefits for doctors: higher safety and less stress in the operating room, simplified collaboration between multidisciplinary teams within the hospital, continuous training and experimentation.
Benefits for the hospital: reduction of operating room costs thanks to the reduction of procedure times, instruments and waste.
