(GermanPolicy.com) – Health expert Karl Lauterbach (SPD) has identified “huge construction sites” in the health care system. During the Corona crisis “in the last two years a lot has been left behind,” he explained. The balance sheets of the hospitals showed deficits, university hospitals in particular are affected, and the health insurance companies are in the red in the double-digit billion range. In addition, one has fallen behind in terms of digitization. Finally, there are significant difficulties in the area of preventive medicine.
