German women leading in the healthcare sector
Germany is among the world’s leading digital healthcare markets with a budget of over 3 billion Euros. The health sector has grown because of the rising incidences of chronic illnesses and an ageing population in the country in need of high-quality services.
In Germany, digital technology is perceived as the cornerstone of a medical breakthrough because of technological devices and software programs used in treatment plans and medication. Digital health entrepreneurs are known to bridge the gap between groups through the use of innovative technology that provides access to physicians and their patients through the use of video and audio technology.
Women are leading in the digital healthcare sector in Germany through entrepreneurial forums such as the Association of German Women Entrepreneurs that promotes female-oriented businesses not only in Germany but across the world.
Moreover, the representation of women at the G20 Summit through W20 has paved way for them to invest their resources in digital health technology. Due to the health complications women face in Germany, a section of female entrepreneurs has heavily invested in digital technology to improve the provision of medical care.
