Business of Healthcare Committee meets with Dr. Marie-Agnes Strack-Zimmermann, stellv. Bundesvorsitzende der Freien Demokraten


Berlin, November 15, 2016: Members of AmCham Germany’s Business of Healthcare Committee met with Dr. Marie-Agnes Strack-Zimmermann, stellv. Bundesvorsitzende der Freien Demokraten (FDP) for an exchange on the FDP’s plans for health policy in their 2017 election program and beyond. Dr. Strack-Zimmermann stated that it is important to focus on patients’ interests. However, as  healthcare companies are very important contributors to the German economy, a fair and reliable regulatory framework has to be provided.

The exchange also focused on the chances and challenges of digitization of healthcare. While data protection is essential, it has to be ensured that the potential for healthcare is made use of.

We thank Ms. Strack-Zimmermann for the open and constructive discussion and the offer to continue the dialogue in the future.
