Best of Healthcare
As healthcare organizations seek profitability, they embrace simulation tools and methodologies not just to speed development but to ensure extreme product safety and reliability — a goal of 100 percent efficacy. Computer modeling and simulation (in silico testing) are revolutionizing the field: The methodology provides valuable insights upfront, bringing earlier product launch and greater return on investment through reduced reliance on animal studies and bench testing. Innovative companies are now leveraging simulation as a gateway to personalized medicine. This special issue of ANSYS Advantage features leading organizations that have leveraged simulation across a wide range of applications to improve quality of life.
Healthcare organizations and clinicians are incorporating simulation into medical product development plans to save time, money and — most importantly — lives.
A Healthy Future
Simulation is increasingly being leveraged in the healthcare sector to demonstrate product performance during the regulatory approval process — where it can significantly reduce time and costs.
