Invitation: Webinars x2 on the German Healthcare System and Market for Digital Health
March 13 and 26, 2024

Swecare, in collaboration with Swedish Medtech, invites you to two webinars that will give you increased knowledge on the German Healthcare system and first-hand insights on the German market for Digital Health. 

The healthcare industry in Germany is undergoing massive digitalization. By 2025, the German digital health market is projected to be worth EUR 57 billion. The Digital Care Act (DVG) now paves the way to broad usage and reimbursement of digital health applications (DIGAs), providing access to digital health applications on prescription to 73 million insured Germans. A number of telemedicine initiatives have also sprung up in recent years, with about 200 telemedicine projects currently active in Germany. 

Germany is Europe's largest healthcare and life sciences market, with healthcare spending exceeding EUR 475 billion and market growth of 5.4 percent over the past five years. With 1,900 hospitals, many of them privately operated, with a capacity of +500,000 beds, Germany has the largest hospital sector in Europe.
