Home Adoption of 3D Printing Medical & Healthcare

Medical & Healthcare

Experts of this field establish a huge difference between medical and healthcare. Medical Care is a SERVICE practice whereas “Healthcare” refers to a whole industry or system of which medical care is only a subset. In this segment, both terms are often used interchangeably to discuss the impact of additive manufacturing technologies within these fields.
