Materialise NV, headquartered in Leuven, Belgium, has introduced Mimics Flow Case Management, a complete case management system which allows users to organise, track and collaborate. The software is intended to increase the value of point-of-care Additive Manufacturing in the medical sector.

Personalised patient care is increasingly becoming a reality, driven by technologies like Additive Manufacturing and advanced visualisation techniques. Increased accessibility of AM in the medical field has led to significant growth of applications using the technologies, but hospitals are often missing the right tools to scale this ability and its associated planning activities, ensure quality compliance, and enable better patient care.

Mimics Flow integrates with Mimics Innovation Suite 26, the medical image-based engineering toolbox, to provide a single workspace for stakeholders, including Additive Manufacturing engineers and leaders, as well as clinicians requesting AM services. With this single workspace, administrators can view all operational work, while clinicians and engineers have individual user profiles with their access interface and personalised rights. This streamlined process and access are intended to help scale operations, organise and manage files, and improve efficiency in point-of-care Additive Manufacturing.

Quality management features in Mimics Flow Case Management are aimed at enabling hospitals to implement checks and controls within their workflow, ensuring each case meets quality requirements. Users can record quality metrics and leverage the data to measure, analyse, and optimise their AM planning and production processes. In addition, automatically generated Case History Reports and action logs help ensure seamless compliance and promote high-quality delivery.

The 3D Viewer accelerates the approval process and increases clinician engagement by enabling both the 3D lab and clinician to provide feedback and updates on the status of each case. With this viewer, Mimics Flow Case Management can also be used as a patient and peer communication tool, allowing clinicians to share or open a view of their 3D models from any device.
