According to a recent study by the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research when it comes to the digitization of healthcare, Germany is more at the taillights in Europe. The reasons are manifold: lack of digital structures, high technology costs, security concerns, bureaucracy, but also conflicts of interest of the many stakeholder groups as well as their delayed participation in important processes. A dilemma! New laws have been introduced, but will that be enough? How can the digital transformation of healthcare finally succeed? How do we make the breakthrough?


At the CAPITAL CONGRESS, we want to discuss these issues with representatives and actors from the health industry, medicine, nursing and politics under various aspects.


To the registration


Because one thing is clear: The brake pads must be removed – but: why is Germany slowing itself down at all? (Session on June 23rd). And what can a future in which health care seems desirable “digitally and everywhere” look like anyway (session on June 23rd)?


Without clear responsibilities, digital solutions will certainly not be successful (session on June 23rd), and it also takes a little courage to overcome fears of contact (session on June 24th) to take advantage of the opportunities that technical progress offers: For example, the relief of nursing staff by integration into the telematics infrastructure (session on June 24th), or “better operation” thanks to process optimization in the operating room (session on June 22nd). But patients could also benefit if their hospital became a “patient information system” with the help of digital platforms (session on June 23rd).


The question of whether and how the acceptance of digital health applications in therapy and prevention can be increased (session on June 24th) remains exciting – among patients and the medical profession. But we will also have to continue to occupy the IT risks of digitization (session on June 24th).


Highly topical topics on which you can expect live discussions and interesting lectures by well-known speakers at the Capital Congress.
