ENP Newswire - 10 January 2014
Release date- 08012014 - CHARLOTTE, N.C - Camstar Systems, Inc. announced today that ConforMIS, the leading provider of patient-specific implants and instrumentation, has deployed Camstar's Manufacturing Execution System (MES) - launching a transformation from paper-based systems to electronic Device History Records (eDHRs) and the accompanying efficiencies, shorter lead times and proactive product quality controls.
Since its founding in 2004, ConforMIS has been one of the fastest growing medical device companies on the strength of its patient-specific total and partial knee replacement systems. The company's patient-specific approach also includes a just-in-time delivery model that is unparalleled in the medical device industry.
'Every ConforMIS implant produced is specific to each individual patient. As a result, we produce high volumes of patient specific, single-unit devices,' said Ray Weatherby, Senior Director of Imaging and CAD Manufacturing for ConforMIS. 'With Camstar's MES and eDHR, we achieve significant support to our company's high growth by delivering the efficiencies needed to reduce manufacturing lead times.'
'Our mission is to provide best-in-class, patient-specific implants and instrumentation that offer unique advantages over traditional off-the-shelf orthopedic implants,' said Matt Scott, VP of Operations for ConforMIS. 'Camstar is enabling us to meet our strategic growth objectives, while ensuring high quality for our patients.'
'Our implementation team delivered the MES on time, in scope, and under budget in our unique, just-in-time virtual manufacturing production area - and with enthusiastic user acceptance,' continued Weatherby. 'The momentum is very high for continued integration.'
'The growing prevalence of patient-specific medical devices is increasing expectations for the results of medical procedures,' said Steve Reynolds, Sr. Vice President for Camstar. 'Camstar is dedicated to helping innovative companies like ConforMIS consistently achieve top quality, optimal delivery times and competitive price points.'
