There is certainly no lack of challenges facing Europe’s healthcare systems. On the one hand we are witnessing a huge demographic shift, with a significant increase in the elderly and chronically sick. On the other hand, personalised treatment, genetic decoding, adapted innovative drugs and medical products also present a challenge. None of this can be obtained for free, and there is a growing need for highly qualified staff. A noticeable shortage of skilled workers already exists. There is demanding work to be done but no one available to do it. Against the backdrop of these challenges, particularly in Germany, a care sector structure exists in which digitalisation lags decades behind developments in other areas. Beacon projects cannot obscure the fact that to a large extent we are still in the twentieth century.
