6 China Symposium at the ICC, Berlin
05th June 2013 from 15:45 to 18:00 , Room 9


The theme of this year's China Symposium was:

"German - Chinese cooperations in healthcare
- The Chinese health care system between growth and regulation"


The topic dealt with the large growth potential of this market on the one hand and the regulatory requirements in the Chinese health care system on the other hand.


The growth potential is arising from the ongoing urbanization trend, the necessary expansion of care services, given the demographic trends in China and the development of a high quality medical infrastructure to cope with the increasing treatment of chronic or "civilization" diseases and serious illnesses.

Action areas that require regulatory measures include the expansion of the social security systems - in particular, the social health insurance - the supply of medicines and the need-based allocation of health facilities for guarantees of access to health services for the entire population, even in rural areas.



Fortunately , the 6 China Symposium society can record a great and very positive feedback from the participants from politics, health care, health industry, and especially our members again. This underscores the growing importance and the growing interest in cooperation with China.


In the contributions of German and Chinese experts it has become clear, that a strengthening of social security and the reduction of regional disparities are necessary for the continuation of existing economic growth in China.The progress already made and the planned continuation of the 2009 initiated healthcare reforms in China were reported by Mr. Gan Ge, the Vice Director of the Department for structural reform of the newly formed National Health and Family Planing Comission (NHFPC), Prof. Chen Anmin, the President of our partner company in Wuhan - the Chinese-German Medical Society (CDGM) and the counselor for economic at the Embassy of the Republic of China in Germany, Mr. Zhang Jiaqiang. Important goals of this reform have already been tackled, such as the creation of a comprehensive primary health care for the population and the increase in the state contribution to health insurance. Other reform priorities are the public hospitals and the establishment and necessary regulation of a drug market.
The economist and president of the Handelsblatt Research Institutes, Prof. Dr. Bert Rürup, presented in his lecture possible starting points for the next reform steps. He stressed on the need of extending the financing base for the hospitals, while reducing the equity share of patients. Furthermore,there is still a lot of work to reach a convergence in the design of public health between regions in China (for example by an interregional financial compensation). Dr. Rainer Hess, former impartial chairman of the Federal Joint Committee, advises for an expansion of supply in rural areas, to think not only on hospitals, but - similar to a development in Germany, where the same demographic challenges exist - to consider the outpatient medical and nursing components as well. Additionally, Dr. Meinrad Lugan, CEO of B.Braun Melsungen, presented the potential and the growing importance of the health care market in China for medical technology and the problems of the pharmaceutical market.

The interesting lectures delivered material for lively discussions during and after the event. The 6th China Symposium of the German - Chinese Medical Society was a great success and a contribution to intensify cultural exchange between Germany and the VR China.

Curriculum „Hospital Management Executive Program“

30 August  – 10 September 2010



The Curriculum „Hospital Management Executive Program“ in Berlin addresses clinical and hospital experts as well as public health service experts in the Chinese health care system. It introduces basic principles of health care management and health economics used in the German health care system and illustrates the relevance of these principles for public health service, health care and the health care industry in health managment and economics.

A qualification in health care management and health care economy is becoming more and more important in medical care and the health care industry, and is a necessary foundation in the health care reform discussion of any country. This calls for adequate further training of doctors and medical experts as well as of medical and political decision makers to enable them to shape and reorganize economic conditions in medical care. In this two-week curriculum developments in the German health care system will be discussed in lectures on a wide spectrum of topics, given by a selection of expert speakers from the fields of science and practice and providing versatile insight into the main features of health care in a German-Chinese comparison. The lectures will be complemented by practical demonstrations in a Berlin hospital (Unfallkrankenhaus Berlin [UKB], Warener Str. 7, 12683 Berlin), the venue of the curriculum. The interdisciplinary approach and linkage of theoretical knowledge and practical experience provides a comprehensive foundation of knowledge in the concerned fields.

Curriculum "Hospital Management Executive Program"

    30.08. – 10.09.2010 in Berlin


Das erste Curriculum "Hospital Management Executive Program“ in Berlin richtete sich an chinesische Führungskräfte im Gesundheitswesen, insbesondere in Kliniken und Einrichtungen des Gesundheits-wesens, und hatte sich zum Ziel gesetzt, Grundlagen des Gesundheitsmanagements und der Gesundheitsökonomie im deutschen Gesundheitssystem vorzustellen und deren Bedeutung für das Gesundheitswesen und die gesundheitliche Versorgung sowie die Gesundheitswirtschaft zu vermitteln.

Neun chinesische Fachleute aus dem administrativen Bereich des Tongji Krankenhauses Wuhan und dem Shanghai Dongfang Hospital, aus dem Gesundheitsministerium, dem Chinese Health Economic Institute und dem Qingdao Medical College Affiliated Hospital nahmen an der Veranstaltung teil.


Die Erfahrungen des deutschen Gesundheitswesens wurden in diesem zweiwöchigen Curriculum durch ein breites Themenspektrum von Vorträgen und durch ausgewählte Referenten aus dem Bereich der Wissenschaft und Praxis vorgestellt und gaben einen vielseitigen Einblick in die Grundzüge des Gesund-heitswesens im deutsch-chinesischen Vergleich.

Das Programm der Veranstaltung finden Sie hier.


Die Einführungsvorträge wurden durch praxisnahe Demonstrationen im Unfallkrankenhaus Berlin (UKB), Warener Str. 7, 12683 Berlin, anschaulich und praxisnah ergänzt. Das UKB bot mit seinem Seminarraum und der Infrastruktur des Krankenhauses einen hervorragend geeigneten Veranstaltungsort.

Eine grundlegende Qualifikation in Gesundheitsmanagement und -ökonomie gewinnt immer mehr an     Bedeutung in der medizinischen Versorgung der Gesundheitswirtschaft  und erfordert sowohl von       Medizinern als auch medizinischen und politischen              Entscheidungsträgern im Gesundheitswesen eine adäquate         Fortbildung, wenn sie grundlegende ökonomische Bedingungen    der medizinischen Versorgung einordnen und mit gestalten    wollen.

Ein umfangreiches Rahmenprogramm rundete die Veranstaltung   ab. Ein Empfang im Bundeswirtschaftsministerium und ein Besuch   im Reichstag waren u. a. beeindruckende Höhepunkte dieses      erfolgreichen Curriculums "Hospital Management".
