Up to 15 billion euros in sales, more than 10,000 additional jobs and savings up to 4 billion euros. Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it?
However, these are precisely the future forecasts for the healthcare sector made by the business consulting firm Roland Berger. But these forecasts only apply to a digitized and state-of-the-art industry and ongoing digitization. And this is exactly where the problem in Germany comes in: Almost the entire healthcare industry is at a low level of digitization. In the Digital Health Index by Bertelsmann Foundation, the intra-European comparison of the level of digitization of healthcare systems, Germany ranks second to last.
The new white paper on Healthcare 4.0 gives you a brief insight into the status quo of the German healthcare system and shows precisely where digital solutions can unfold their full potential. In medical practices, clinics, medical care centres (MVZ) and pharmacies, there are places where digitalisation is just waiting to be introduced and to make the life and work of employees and patients easier and better. Digitalization offers opportunities for improvement especially where gaps in nursing or care arise due to a lack of qualified personnel.
