The changing landscape of health care

Dear Sir or Madam,

We are all confronted with it: the global economy is changing - even fundamentally sometimes. The market for medical technology is also affected by this, because factors such as digitalization open up new and undreamt-of possibilities. Do small and medium-sized German companies with an export orientation benefit from these changes or do they have to face new obstacles? Find out more in our current video.

I wish you a pleasant week
