Discover the 5 Myths Sabotaging Your Hiring Strategy

Industry Overview

There is no doubt that the adoption of plastics technology has revolutionized the healthcare industry. From IV and blood bags to diagnostic machines and prosthetic limbs and joints, medical plastics play a huge role in both extending our lives and enhancing our quality of life. Child-resistant caps and time-release capsules improve the safety and efficiency of our pharmaceuticals, while surgical gloves and disposable syringes reduce risk of infection and cross-contamination.

Innovations in the medical plastics industry continue to transform healthcare, with breakthroughs such as polycarbonate surgical tools, plastic skin patches to replace painful injections, bioresorbable heart stents, and 3-D printing of prostheses. These improvements work from both sides of the system, improving patients’ quality of life while simultaneously making procedures simpler for the attending nurses and physicians that carry them out. They also appease administrators, who enjoy the benefits of reduced costs as well as happier, more satisfied employees and customers.
