There are many excellent resources that can help you determine an appropriate design and process flow for your organization’s value analysis program and teams. Because of this, I assume that you have accessed those resources and have a broad understanding of the purpose, principles, and best practices of an effective value analysis program. Therefore, this article is focused on the specific considerations for effective value analysis of biologics.
The biologics used in spine surgery are varied and complex. They are often obtained from many vendors, with different technologies, at wildly varying price points. This makes it very difficult to unravel all the information regarding these products, particularly for non-clinicians. Biologics are also typically considered “physician preference items,” which can add greatly to the complexity of value analysis efforts. This makes preparation critical for value analysis efforts, and can make or break savings or vendor consolidation goals.

OSTEOAMP is a minimally manipulated allograft which is compliant to 21 CFR 1271 and is regulated as a 361 HCT/P (ie, human cells, tissues, and cellular and tissue-based products regulated solely under Section 361 of PHS Act). OSTEOAMP is not combined with a drug, medical device, or carrier. As a 361 HCT/P, OSTEOAMP does not require prior FDA approval for commercial distribution (ie, no premarket clearance/approval by FDA is required).
OSTEOAMP may be used in situations where an autograft is appropriate. It should be restricted to homologous use for the repair, replacement, or reconstruction of musculoskeletal defects.
