Healthcare service providers - hospitals in particular - are facing huge challenges today. These include
*) intense financial pressure, because since the DRG system was introduced, reimbursement has not been based on actual cost but on case classifications. Reimbursement rates are falling due to demographical development.
*) Creation of clinic chains force hospitals to merge organizationally and technically.
*) Information technologies gain in significance in respect of medical equipment, billing, quality assurance, reporting and telemedicine.
*) Laws requiring the formation of multi-care centers, outpatient treatment and the electronic health card
However, these challenges not only affect hospitals, they affect everyone working in healthcare. This includes public health insurance companies, primary care and specialist practitioners as well as information technology and medical equipment suppliers. The world market for information technology in the healthcare sector was already worth 100 billion euros in 2002, accounting for almost 40% of the medical technology market.
