The health­care and so­cial ser­vices sys­tem, as the se­cond-lar­gest job mar­ket in Ger­many, has been re­di­rec­ted to rely on a form of fi­nan­cing go­ver­ned by a mar­ket eco­nomy and com­pe­ti­tion. This re­placed the “full cost co­ver­age prin­ci­ple” that ap­plied un­til the early ni­ne­ties. These struc­tu­ral chan­ges have led to com­pe­ti­tion on price and the evo­lu­tion of sub­mar­kets. The health­care and so­cial ser­vices sec­tor has also been one of the most si­gni­fi­cant growth mar­kets world­wide. As de­mo­gra­phic change con­ti­nues and so­ciety ages, this sec­tor will be­come even more im­port­ant.

Hos­pi­tals, re­ha­bi­li­ta­tion fa­ci­li­ties, el­der care fa­ci­li­ties and other health­care ser­vice pro­vi­ders are fa­cing con­stant new chal­len­ges in this set­ting. On­go­ing re­form and es­pe­cially the con­stantly chan­ging le­gal en­viron­ment ap­ply in­tense pres­sure to the in­dus­try. To­day’s hos­pi­tal sec­tor in Ger­many is do­mi­na­ted by is­sues like how to fi­nance ne­cessary in­vest­ments in an era of tight pu­blic fun­ding, ver­ti­cal and ho­ri­zon­tal coope­ra­tion to le­ver­age syn­ergy ef­fects and ex­pand the range of ser­vices, and cor­po­rate re­struc­tu­ring by out­sour­cing ser­vices not re­la­ting to pa­ti­ents.

Our ex­perts in health­care and so­cial ser­vices enjoy a spe­cial po­si­tion in the mar­ket for ad­vi­sing and au­diting health­care fa­ci­li­ties. Our ge­ne­ra­list ap­proach helps RSM Eb­ner Stolz stand out cle­arly from the com­pe­ti­tion. A re­gu­lar con­tact per­son with a broad know­ledge of health­care and so­cial ser­vices will as­sist your pro­jects. And your con­tact can make use of the ser­vices of in­ter­di­sci­pli­nary teams of ac­coun­tants, au­di­tors, tax ad­vi­sors, busi­ness and law gra­dua­tes with ex­pe­ri­ence in the field, not just to find prac­tical so­lu­ti­ons for com­plex is­sues, but also to point out the risks and op­por­tu­nities of fu­ture de­ve­lop­ments.
