Materialise NV, a global leader in 3D printing solutions, has released SurgiCase software, an online case management system (CMS) for personalized medical devices. The SurgiCase software, will give medical device companies and clinicians a single location to exchange data, communicate about procedural planning and check the status of their cases. This reduces the administrative overhead and ultimately helps these companies to help more patients with a personalized device at a lower cost.
The demand for personalized medical devices has grown significantly in recent years as physicians experience their benefits for predictable, accurate outcomes and improved patient care. This comes with new challenges for medical device companies. Instead of making one single device in a more efficient way, nowadays medical device companies need technology to create thousands of personalized devices in an automated workflow, while ensuring a good communication with the individual clinicians.
The Materialise SurgiCase software will help these companies optimize their logistical process by streamlining several steps in their planning and design process, from order intake and case tracking, to reporting and compliance checks. It will accelerate their case management by providing an overview of all ongoing cases, historical case data and file storage and approval management.
On the clinicians’ side, SurgiCase improves the collaboration between physicians and clinical engineers by allowing physicians to inspect and approve planning and device design through an interactive viewer that combines 2D images and 3D models. Throughout the entire process the software allows physicians and staff to provide input regarding service, delivery date, case information, while tracking the progress of ongoing cases.
The software is complementary to the Materialise Mimics Innovation Suite, the most advanced toolkit for engineering on anatomy, and can be used in an ISO13485 and GDPR compliant setting.
