Pricing Strategies for 3D Printed or 3D Printing Related Medical Devices

by Jenny Chen, M.D.

As the world is becoming more aware of the potential impact of 3D printing in medical/surgical workflow, tissue engineering, new products and procedures (and the startups behind them) based on additive manufacturing are surfacing. The bigger question to innovators, healthcare payors, and startup founders beyond the initial excitement of making things work: Is there enough long-term sustainable value of this new product, procedure, or startup?
