03.07.2019 | DIT-Press - On June 24th, students of Digital Health (Master of Medical Informatics and Bachelor of Health Informatics) at the European Campus Rottal-Inn (ECRI) participated in an invited workshop with acclaimed guest lecturer Justus Wolff, manager for strategy and M&A at Syte.
Mr. Wolff spoke about the strategies and implementation methods of business models across healthcare industries to an international group of students with different backgrounds ranging from information technology over medicine up to business administration.
The Digital Health market in Germany, which is the top investor and the largest medical technology market in Europe, was the focus of the workshop. The potential of the Digital Health market as a comparatively unventured market, its opportunities in Germany and internationally, were explained and illustrated by several case studies. The key players from multinationals to hidden champions, and their scope in this market were also part of the talk.
The master class kept up with the interactive lecture by developing an understanding of real-world challenges through a workshop in two different groups covering economic impact calculations and new product development cases. The students provided a universally positive feedback to this complementary activity, mentioning the important insights into the Digital Health business and entrepreneurship in Germany and worldwide as the main value.
