3DHEALS is a healthcare
3D printing innovation platform

Mission Statement:

Connect the world to innovate on healthcare 3D printing

Our Journey:

As a radiologist, 3D printing really blurs the line between the digital imaging world and the physical world. Three years ago,  I wanted to make my own models to help the surgeons I work with, but there was no clear pathway. In addition to cost, the software and hardware were both challenging to use. There was no instruction. That’s why I started 3DHEALS, initially a small meetup group in San Francisco, to meet people who could help me with achieving my own goal of making a model. However, very soon, the group attracted talented professions from many different disciplines: engineering, healthcare providers, entrepreneurs, scientists, and more. Everyone brings in expertise from their own background, and our meetings soon become more formally organized events, first in SF, then all over the world.

The format of having people from different backgrounds to have direct conversations with one another is well received. At 3DHEALS events, ideas can become reality, blueprints can be an actual product. Together, we share the vision that 3D Printing will be one of the major forces that will revolutionize healthcare.

In the past two years, with the help of 30+ dedicated community managers, 3DHEALS has grown from a single city to now over 20+ cities all over the world, and growing. Today, we are actively building 3DHEALS both offline and online, and wish geography will no longer pose as a barrier for members in this group to connect, innovate, and succeed together. Our mission will remain to: educate, connect, and discover in healthcare 3D printing and bioprinting space.

Jim Long

3DHEALS Community Manager, North Carolina More info ...
Jim Grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana and attended Indiana University graduated in 2007. I studied Criminal Justice with a focus in Law, and minor degrees in Spanish, Psychology, and Religious Studies. Immediately after graduation, I decided to delay law school to accept a medical device role at Cook Medical. There he worked in a customer facing role as District Sales Manager in the Aortic Intervention Division and served as a catalyst to develop education for newer and less invasive patient therapies. In addition, I operated as an endovascular specialist for patients with Abdominal, Thoracic, and Thoraco-abdominal, and Ascending aortic aneurysms. This role allowed him to collaborate with physicians to create patient-specific solutions and support live cases in the operating room. It was this experience for many years at Cook that led him to his current role in minimally invasive heart valve therapies at Medtronic (TAVR). 
 
While at Cook I often felt like I didn’t belong due to my undergraduate studies, however, I noticed that many skills developed in my training directly applied to pre-procedural planning and anatomical challenges. I applied the same thought process to analyze and deconstruct literature to analyze and segment a patient’s anatomy. In a procedure, most of the work is done ahead of time, and an excellent plan designed to prepare for perceived challenges most often proves for a smooth procedure and an excellent patient outcome. This is really no different than analyzing, breaking down an argument, planning a rebuttle to an argument, and then having the ability to eloquently, and succinctly direct and guide an operator to a specific action (or my point if writing a paper). Admittedly this connection might seem quite odd, but over the years it has proven to be a valuable paradigm.
 
“I’ve been fortunate to have a front row seat in the operating room for over 13 years, and have collaborated with many brilliant physicians to create and design new treatment options.” I’m a constant learner, and desire the best possible outcomes for patients. Device iterations and improvements are directly related to improved patient outcomes. I believe Additive Manufacturing is the key to improving patient outcomes and has a role in all aspects of the product life cycle, from Prototyping to end use, and will be point of care for physicians in the future. I’m continuing my education in AM and have just earned my certificate in Additive Manufacturing for Innovative Design & Production through MIT.
 
I believe AM offers infinite solutions within the scope of healthcare, and all hospitals and industry partners should consider investing in this important technology. I’m very excited to serve as a community manager for 3D Heals!!
 
Jim currently lives in Charlotte, NC, and is grateful to be supported by his wife Jennifer, and their three children: Jay, June, and Julia. Outside of work he enjoys spending time with his family, Running, and Fishing. In addition, he is investigating the use of 3D printing technology healthcare, specifically with medical device design.
