A Call to Standardize, Sustain and Scale

As the demand for more advanced medical devices rises, industry leaders in healthcare are not only striving for innovation; they're also compelled by sustainability imperatives. Today, medical device manufacturers are actively competing to lead the market and achieve more sustainable operations, seeking ways to reduce carbon footprints and prioritize eco-friendly practices.

However, eliminating operational silos and managing supply chain disruptions in medical technology (MedTech) have remained a major challenge. The added pressures of reduced profitability, growing regulations and rising product recalls further complicate matters.

Consequently, MedTech companies find themselves at a tipping point, prompting a business transformation. To achieve standardization, scalability and sustainability in  medical device manufacturing, market leaders must fully embrace digital technology — the blueprint for MedTech success that can be unlocked with the  3DEXPERIENCE® platform.

But is your company ready for a digital transformation? Take the quiz below to discover where you stand.

According to Boston Consulting Group, 30% of MedTech companies have accomplished digital transformation, while others are gradually following suit. This slow progress hinders compliance with key regulations like the European Medical Device Regulation (EU-MDR) — a regulation that mandates traceability of manufactured medical devices.

This poses a challenge for companies yet to embrace digitalization, particularly those in disconnected manufacturing facilities.

And, without that capability, how can product quality and safety be assured, especially considering the alarming rate of device recalls? Clearly, a transformation is urgently needed. Standardizing and scaling sustainable MedTech manufacturing can serve as its cornerstone. To achieve this, digitalization must be integrated.

By embracing Dassault Systèmes’ digitally integrated 3DEXPERIENCEplatform, medical device manufacturers and industry leaders can gain:

  • Market agility
    React quickly to changing product demands by using virtual twin technology to simulate and optimize manufacturing processes in a 3D environment
  • Standardization
