The close connection between research, business and healthcare institutions is the big advantage of the healthcare region Berlin.
Charité, Berlin-Buch, Rudolf Virchow, Robert Koch ‒ high-end medicine, renowned clinics and pioneering work of medical research have always been a tradition in Berlin. Thanks to the close cooperation of science and business, research results flow immediately into the practice. The offers range from primary healthcare to high-end medicine, from wellness and prevention measures to rehabilitation after recovering from a disease. Another advantage in the capital region is the range of attractive opportunities for studying and training. The region also has an outstanding international reputation – illustrated by the increase in health tourism.
Due to the heterogeneity of the capital region, all subjects of Germany’s healthcare landscape are represented here: this includes the demand-oriented distribution of healthcare offers within the metropolises just as the sustainable healthcare in remote regions, particularly in regards to the increasing number of elderly people. New cross-sector and integrated concepts of healthcare as well as new technologies such as telemedicine, Ambient Assisted Living and IT based prevention are gaining more and more importance. The capital region is about to become a pioneer in this field.
»The Charité truly drives the health services sector of the Berlin-Brandenburg region. We cooperate with all kinds of enterprises in the industry across the entire value chain spectrum.«Prof. Dr. Karl Max Einhäupl, Chairman of the Executive Board Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin
