    From the Tagesspiegel event page (translated into English):

    Healthcare is one of the most important economic sectors for the Berlin-Brandenburg region. The potential is undisputed: Industry, politics and the startup scene are closely linked to research and medicine. However, the SARS-CoV-2 epidemic is putting the healthcare industry to the test - startups lack capital reserves, supply chains are stalling and an impending economic crisis is fueling concerns about cuts in healthcare spending. At the same time, the epidemic illustrates the need and benefit for digital health solutions and a strongly networked health system.

    At the 4th Health Industry Forum, the Tagesspiegel wants to know what opportunities and risks the current situation holds for the digitization of the healthcare industry in the capital region. We want to find out what has been achieved so far in terms of digitization, where the players can network even more structured and what need for action becomes clear from the epidemic.
