Even before the Corona crisis, the economic situation of German hospitals had deteriorated
continuously. The current pandemic situation is further exacerbating their difficulties.
In order to ensure that the well-being of patients remains the main goal while at the same
time a high level of efficiency, a nationwide coverage and a robust care in the event of a
crisis are guaranteed, the course must now be set correctly. This “RWI Position” outlines
seven measures how to achieve this. Main focus has to be on a stronger centralization of
hospital structures supported by new care models, a simplified legal regulatory framework
and a greater focus on digitization and transparency.
