Johnson & Johnson Services is collaborating with HP on three-dimensional printing technologies for healthcare.

Here are five key notes on the collaboration:

 

1. The 3D printing technology is designed to improve healthcare outcomes and reduce costs.

 

2. The companies will combine scientific, clinical, material science and technological expertise as well as deep insights to develop products and solutions that can be manufactured quickly. The technology can also customize printing to the individual patient or consumer.

 

3. The collaboration will focus on personalization of instrumentation and software for patient-specific healthcare devices initially and it’s anticipated the 3D printing technology can lead to innovation in orthopedics, eye health and consumer products.

 

4. The 3D printing technology could enable patient-specific products, therapies and solutions for better economic and global accessibility.

 

5. Both companies have already begun to collaborate with expert teams working together.

 

“The intersection of technology and healthcare is spurring innovation that will have a profound impact on patients and consumers all over the world,” said Sandra Peterson, Group Worldwide Chairman at Johnson & Johnson.
