Increasing privatization of hospitals

An unprecedented wave of privatization has gripped the hospital landscape in recent years. Even university hospitals are no longer immune from being sold to private investors. The financial crisis of the public budgets and the politically wanted competition accelerated by the new flat rate system will further intensify this trend. Experts predict that 40 to 50 percent of hospitals will be privately owned by 2020. But what are the consequences of increasing privatization for the scope and quality of inpatient care, for medical work and the future image of doctors? The German Medical Association has investigated this question. After one year of analysis and discussion with leading representatives from associations, ministries, scientific institutions and private companies, the report on the results of these consultations is now available.
