The healthcare sector in Germany is heavily regulated, shaped by a number of very different interests and, above all, subject to constant change. Demographic change is an additional factor – an aging population is increasing the demand for medical services. Players in the healthcare market need to take advantage of existing opportunities, minimise the risks and avoid undesirable developments.
