Collaboration to focus on improving outcomes at Johnson & Johnson, increasing satisfaction and reducing costs for patients, consumers and health care providers

In 2014 Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) began experimenting with 3D printing. Today the company announced a collaboration between Johnson & Johnson Services, Inc. and HP 3D Printing. The collaboration is focused on using 3D printing technologies to create better health care outcomes at reduced costs. Working together, the companies plan to combine their scientific, clinical, material science and technological expertise, and deep insights to develop products and solutions which can be manufactured quickly and customized to the needs of an individual patient or consumer.

In the near-term, the collaboration will focus on personalization of instrumentation and software for patient-specific healthcare devices. It is anticipated that 3D printing technology will lead to innovation in areas such as orthopaedics, eye health and consumer products, among others.

bnr-img-two“The intersection of technology and health care is spurring innovation that will have a profound impact on patients and consumers all over the world,” said Sandra Peterson, Group Worldwide Chairman, Johnson & Johnson. “Combined with advances in data mining and software, 3D printing could enable distributed manufacturing models and patient-specific products, therapies and solutions that deliver better outcomes, better economics and improved global accessibility. This collaboration with HP Inc. exemplifies our commitment to harnessing new technology to improve outcomes and reduce costs across the health continuum.”

“Advances in 3D printing technology have the potential to break historical paradigms of health care delivery in ways that are not feasible in traditional manufacturing processes,” said Stephen Nigro, president of HP’s 3D printing business. “Together with Johnson & Johnson we have the potential to create opportunities and innovations in health care to improve patients’ lives that neither company could develop alone.”

The collaboration announced today has already begun, with teams of experts from both organizations working together.
