Weekly News Roundup, 5.15.19

Here is Relatable Healthcare's almost weekly roundup on news you may have missed:

The New Business Model in Orthopedics
  • How medical device data collection could become more valuable than the medical devices themselves.
ASC supply chain tip of the day: Employ a full-time materials supervisor
  • Relatable gives your materials supervisor the tools to optimize material costs and utilization. Or if you don't have a full-time materials supervisor, Relatable can help you quickly identify savings too.
Why Alphatec Spine is focused on titanium, not 3D printing going forward
  • Interesting to see an orthopedic device company moving back towards titanium, as titanium products are effective but typically cheaper when compared to many of the newer and expensive alternatives.

ASCA 2019 Conference is happening in Nashville from May 15-17th
at the Gaylord Opryland Convention Center.
