Health systems must maintain resilient and adaptable supply chains in order to provide patient care in the midst of a crisis.
Join us for a fireside chat with Jeff Immelt, former CEO of GE and GE Healthcare, and Max Lobovsky, CEO of Formlabs, to discuss how 3D printing is changing healthcare. Learn how 3D printing technology is critical to the fight against COVID-19 and is an ideal tool for both surgical efficiencies and long-term clinical innovation.
They will be introduced by Gaurav Manchanda, director of healthcare at Formlabs, and Todd Goldstein, director of 3D design and innovation at Northwell Health. Recently, Northwell Health repurposed their Formlabs 3D printers, which usually print surgical tools, to produce over 100,000 nasopharyngeal swabs, mitigating global shortages and providing critical testing capabilities. They also used 3D printing to develop and print critical supplies, including BiPAP to ventilator convertors, and personal protective equipment (PPE).
Supply chain managers, surgeons, and C-suite executives from hospitals and health systems are invited to attend.
Jeff served as chairman and CEO of GE for 16 years, prior to which he served as president and CEO of GE Healthcare. He has been named one of the "World's Best CEOs" three times by Barron's and, while he was CEO, GE was named "America's Most Admired Company" by Fortune magazine. He has extensive experience in digital health and is currently a technology and healthcare Venture Partner at New Enterprise Associates.
Max Lobovsky is co-founder and CEO of Formlabs. Formlabs pioneered the new category of professional desktop 3D printing when it launched the world’s first affordable, powerful desktop stereolithography 3D printer. Prior to starting Formlabs, Lobovsky led the efforts at Fab@Home, one of the industry’s earliest open-source 3D printing projects which has been instrumental in setting up labs in schools worldwide. A Forbes’ 30 Under 30 recipient and World Economic Forum Pioneer, Lobovsky holds a B.S. in Applied Engineering and Physics from Cornell University and a M.S. in Media Arts and Sciences from MIT.
Todd is the Director of 3D Design and Innovation at Northwell Health, where he has led the 3D print lab for more than 8 years. Most recently, he pioneered a template for 3D-printed nasal swabs, contributing to Northwell Health’s COVID-19 response.
Gaurav Manchanda leads healthcare at Formlabs. Previously, he was an advisor to the Ministry of Health in Liberia, where he led technology initiatives during the post-war reconstruction period. Manchanda also worked with the Powering Health initiative of the US government before founding a venture-backed firm that brought clean energy hardware and mobile communications tools to health workers and others in resource-limited settings. At Formlabs, he drives initiatives that facilitate clinical applications and improve patient care.
