The health care system, a strong part of the German economy
Enormous potential for added value through more digitisation
Job engine health care industry: 7.6 million people work in the health care industry. That is every sixth job in Germany. In Europe, this sector generates 95 billion euros. One third of this comes from German companies. In terms of patent applications, Germany ranks second behind the USA. The importance of the health care system and medical technology in Germany is undisputedly high.
It is a dynamic industry. Currently strongly affected by the corona pandemic. However, it is a sector with great potential and just as many challenges. The digital transformation is also changing the procurement process in the healthcare sector and redefining the way people shop. Compared to other sectors, however, the healthcare industry only occupies a midfield position in terms of digitalisation. A lot of unused potential and a lot of room for improvement.
